I welcome you all to the Spring issue of Reflections 2021. I am indeed very glad to see that our students are taking a lot of initiative to keep up the publication of their magazine in spite of all odds.

     However, compared to our previous publications we can feel a subtle change in the tone of the writings in this issue. The writings in this issue reflect a deep concern of these young minds about the grave situation all over the world due to the pandemic. I am sure that by expressing themselves through these writings our students can find some relief, hope and strength to cope with the present state of affairs.

     I wish our young writers all the best in their creative efforts and our readers a pleasant reading of Reflections.

     Thank you.
