And like the last year, parents are a worried lot this time too, about how to engage their kids during free time in over month-long holidays. Neither summer camps nor are the neighbourh­ood institutio­ns open to offer them the hobby classes. The fear of coronaviru­s is such in the air that not only parents, even the kids are cautious of the impending danger outside their homes.
