About the cover:
After two years of lockdown, restriction and quarantine, a New Chapter begins. Hence, the cover of this issue signifies “A Beginning of the End: A Chapter that Never Ends”. School activities and Face to Face Learning might have halted for some time: however, keys have been rekindled and revived the lost knowledge. The threat of virus might still be in proximity, lurking in the corner and it might attack anytime, but the thirsting over knowledge cannot be stopped.
