A quote from a very famous fiction goes like this, “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light”. The 2019 Novel Coronavirus, COVID-19, has been challenging human resilience for almost 5 months now. The citizens of the world have been asked to sit at home, resulting in a dominoes effect in the corporate world. This is especially true for the aviation sector, The Indian aviation sector is projected to incur a staggering USD 3.3- 3.6 billion loss in the first quarter of the next financial year if flight services remain grounded till June-end, according to a report.
However, IndiGo offered the Union Civil Aviation Ministry its ‘resources, aircraft and crew’ to transport medicine, equipment and relief material from one part of the country to another. They simply turned on the light, giving a ray of hope to many affected.
We think this issue, “10 Must-Watch Aviation Institutions in India” could not have been released at a better time. With almost all aviation giants taking a hit, there will be a surge for masterful professionals who can help them overcome the economical atrophy.
We have also covered several authors who talk about not falling for the imposter syndrome, the importance of society ensuring its women’s health, and the role of Robotics in education. In the following pages, you will also read the words of a children’s advocate, underlining every child’s right to quality education. The story of Liljana’s perseverance, which we have portrayed in this issue, will surely move you, if not motivate you to rise to the occasion and your best to help those in help around you. I hope you, as our dear reader, use these quarantine days to introspect and catch up on all that you previously did not have time for. Always remember to disinfect, sanitize, repeat.
This too shall pass.
