When we will think of Corona period a few years later, perhaps we won’t be able to believe it. It’s good that things are improving swiftly. When the pandemic began in February-March, we were fighting against an unknown enemy. There were a lot of uncertainties – be it production, logistics, revival of economy – there were multiple issues. The question was, how long will this go on? How will things improve? By December, the situation has changed. We have answers as well as a roadmap. The economic indicators today are encouraging. The things learnt by the nation at the time of crisis have further strengthened the resolutions of future.
