It has been more than eight months since the COVID-19 lockdown saga began in India. Reports on the impact of the pandemic and the subsequent lockdown on the lives of children have been coming out. In June and July 2020 several reports were published on the situation on the ground as well as its impact on children. Each of these reports – the NSSO 75th Round on key indicators of household social consumption on education (NSSO, GOI November 2019, published in July 2020) i , the Central Square Foundation report on private schools (CSF, New Delhi July 2020) ii , the Save the Children (India) report on the post-pandemic situation (SC India June 2020), Young Voices – National Report of the task force examining Age of Marriage (CWC, Bangalore, July 2020) iii and a number of newspaper reports and articles on the impact of the lockdown on the poor, especially teachers and children – all point to a situation that is not only grim but also one that demands urgent attention.
