> The Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown in third week of March 2020 paralysed the economy and education sector was one of the worst affected. Apart from the trauma of being confined to home for days together, our children were unable to go to school on reopening of the academic year. Online learning required the simultaneous use of gadgets such as mobiles, laptops and TV apart from cable or internet connectivity. The digital divide in the economy came to the forefront. Many children unable to bear the shame of not able to attend online classes committed suicide.
