Educationist Aysha R Natarajan has said that “In most countries, the governments are still going with hundred per cent online classes. All the gadgets and facilities required for the purpose are provided by the government. In the US, students were given food packets, even though the classes were conducted online. In India, particularly in Tamil Nadu, we have failed to do either of the two,”
