The hypothesis of “Survival of the fittest”, which was linked with Darwin’s natural selection has been in existence for several decades and had been challenged by various scholars from different schools of thought. Although it was accepted too at a particular time in evolution, as it lacks some basis for as long as today’s world is concerned. If technologies, economies, environmental problems and diseases are evolving and transforming, so do we have sufficient knowledge that who will be fit to survive in such a situation? Nobody has ever thought that the whole world will stop one at a particular time or day, but you could witness the helplessness of humankind within this year 2019 - 2020 as a result of COVID-19. Several questions have been raised in order to know that who is responsible for this and what should be done? How to tackle with the situation and many other problems are yet to address including climate change which is of utmost importance in present scenario As a result of these and many other reasons, it is important to reevaluate the hypothesis of survival of the fittest to be fit in our present world. Incorporating awareness in the hypothesis may bring about several aspects which seem to be excluded in the previous hypothesis. Awareness may include but not limited to one’s own life style (i.e. consciousness of the impact of their actions or activities on the environment), access to information, knowledge of current world trends and happenings and their timing. Here we represent an improved hypothesis of “Survival of the Fittest and tried to explore current aspects that suits in ongoing conditions.
