Millions of students have expressed their #MannKiBaat. They have said loud & clear that exams in Pandemic mean a massive health threat for students. Given the present digital divide in the country, exams mean blatant discrimination.

Even though the message of #AdoptDontShop is an important one, it might not have been the best decision to see through and ignore the issues faced by distressed students who are preparing for NEET/JEE.
