Indian Union Budget 2021-22: Covid-19 pandemic gripped the world in 2020 and shoved it towards a new order of doing things. While the pandemic slowly and steadily spread across the world, it changed a lot of perceptions, touched the lives of every one of us in its way, and taught us a decade worth of lessons.

While regular business meetings, court hearings, and classroom sessions got entirely stalled for a few weeks, it was sooner rather than later realized that the pandemic was not going away in a short time. Businesses, professionals, and even our country’s Courts switched over to virtual meetings and platforms to conduct their official work daily. Digital networks and mobiles evolved from being a luxury to an absolute necessity for most people.

Including our children who turned to such devices for their basic educational needs. Students missed out (and are still missing) on several crucial months of their studies due to the onset of the pandemic, and many schools took practical steps to organize virtual classrooms to continue with the investigations. We learned that the virtual way of doing things is here to stay, which would be partially retained in the post-Covid times and would only increase from thereon.
