Due to the Covid19 pandemic, the students have been at a massive loss. The whole psychological condition of students have changed due to the online learning adaptation. A survey shows a total loss of 8.9 per cent in the academic year 2020–2021.

He had a brilliant advice for students, "The two most important life goals I would like every youth to have: One, increase the amount of time that you have at your disposal; two, increase what you can achieve in the time available."

This year the auspicious day will be celebrated with the theme of "Learning for people, planet, prosperity and peace". It reaffirms the role of education as a fundamental right for public good. It also enables the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
