COVID-19 has shaken the foundations of numerous sectors worldwide. Although many of these changes in our daily life might be temporary, some nudges might alter the way our lives function in the long term. Take the education sector for example.

Today, Kavita Anand, Founder and Director of Adhyayan Foundation explores these questions and more to help us understand what we can learn from our current situation to prepare for tomorrow.
