Coimbatore Institute of Technology, For NG Workshop
“I enjoyed your very positive outlook to coping with stress and COVID very much.
I live in Sydney, Australia and I must say the country in general has coped with all aspects of COVID quite sensibly. I worked from home for 2 months and it certainly changed my outlook in many ways. I did enjoy the compulsory slow down of our hectic lives.”
