The most challenging times in our life are the greatest opportunities for us to learn something new and grow as better individuals. And, embracing adversity requires a positive mindset. We see the difficulty of the current circumstance. However, we have decided to focus on the opportunity. Let us take our education system for instance. The universities and colleges across the country have shut their campuses due to the nationwide lockdown imposed to curb the spread COVID-19 pandemic. However, most of them have started embracing online education, as nobody knows when things will become normal.
Notwithstanding the fact that it will be a herculean task for the academicians to finish the syllabus on time without compromising on the quality, as various exams have been postponed for an indefinite time. It is also true that college admissions and campus placements will suffer in the coming days. Amidst all this chaos, educational institutions trying hard to offer online classes to their students so that they can resume academics without much gap is a positive take away from this crisis. Yes, not all of them are fully ready to do this, but they are learning fast using the available tools. The mantra here simple; whatever happens, we cannot let the life to stand still. The show must go on.
The show goes on at the Higher Education Digest too. In this issue, along with our exclusive interviews and articles contributed by academicians and professionals around the world, we have listed ‘50 Must-Watch Engineering Colleges in India’ identified by our expert panel and included inspirational stories of some selected colleges featured in that list.
