The thought behind the theme for the webinar was how the current pandemic scenario challenges the lifestyle and demands a substantial amount of personal, economic and social transformations. The panellists believed that from lockdown 4 to unlock 1, we are heading towards unprecedented social and behavioural changes. They concluded the session mentioning that a pandemic can bring out best from us the power of collectivity, positivity, solidarity, and mutual respect. It can also bring out worst of our behaviour discrimination, inequality, and hatred. One of the key insights into the topic was shared by Dr Manas Mandal in the following words: In critical times, we bring out the best or the worst of us.... the choice is ours&rdquo
