India's Ambassador to the US Taranjit Singh Sandhu has urged all Indian students not to panic over the uncertainties and changes in academic sessions as COVID-19 pandemic is temporary. During a virtual interaction with more than 50 Indian students aspiring to study in the US, Sandhu said that these circumstances should rather inspire them to work harder to fulfil their study abroad dreams.
Sandhu further mentioned about the new and overwhelming teaching practices adopted by the educational institutions in India and the US and how the Indian government has been providing multiple solutions for all challenges posed by these unprecedented times. He also asked students to take inspiration from the "tenacity" shown by India in tackling COVID-19 problems and contribute towards creating a modern, self-reliant, prosperous and happy India.

Speaking to the students, Sandhu also touched upon the partnership between India and the US as an important aspect of the relationship between the two countries and how technology will play an important role now and even post the COVID-19 era. Both the countries are already working together to find solutions in the sectors of education, business, healthcare and diplomacy.
