The past year was indeed an eventful year for us with the pandemic situations changing our outlook towards life, work, studies and social interactions. We are grateful to God who kept us fit and fine and helped us to face the challenges of the present times. We welcomed the new year with gratitude, new expectations, hopes and optimism. As we begin this year pandemic is once again taking its turn and affecting the life of everyone in every sphere of life. We are aware that students are the worst affected section of the society during this pandemic, as they have lost an important portion of their childhood years at school, which has affected their social and emotional development. We as adults need to assist them to cope up with these situations in our family and at school.
