Abstract

We are not only facing toughest time of our life after last 80 years due to Corona Virus disease (COVID-19) pandemic but also to the governments affecting almost all other spheres of life. It has been our testing times in last 70 days in India and will continue to do so for a few more months ahead until we find a vaccine or until the entire virus is eradicated. During this difficult time we have multiple challenges of life, liberty, business, commerce, trade, education, food and it is very natural to fall into depression, mood swings, anxiety, fear and in some cases even suicidal. As we know educational institutions were first to shut down, so we can say education is the most hit sector because of Covid-19 pandemic that has seriously affected the life and the teaching, learning process of several millions students and faculty globally. Because on March 11, 200, the World Health Organization (WHO) citing concerns with the alarming levels of spread of covid-19 and its severity, asked the Governments to take urgent and compulsory measures to stop the spread of this virus. WHO declared that the outbreak of this viral disease covid-19 first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, China - had reached the level of a global pandemic. The Prime Minster of India Mr. NarendraModi keeping in mind the expected threats of the virus and timely imposed lock-down throughout the country from 26th March. As the lock-down is the most effective way of breaking the chain of Coronavirus spread.
