There is a famous quote- “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a long time”- epitomizing the importance of education. The entire history of mankind has seen tales of pandemic and the misery that it had bought along, but the only silver lining in those tales was the emergence of humans standing on their feet, fighting and braving the odds and difficulties to rise like the phoenix bird that rose from the ashes. It was the power of determination, knowledge and the guidance of the educated leaders that humans fought, survived and emerged more resilient after these tales of miseries. The Indian society has the same will power, openness, tolerance; and the urge to learn, to recover and emerge strong from this pandemic. The present short communication summarizes the experiences in India during the pandemic with specific reference to education sector.
