It hasn’t been an easy year for all and I wish everyone a blessed time ahead as we conclude the year in 1.5 months. To my friends in education, we have worked super hard this year. May all of us be recharged during our upcoming protected vacation leave and start the year 2022 with a fresh perspective. Please take care!
