2020 marks the year of a global pandemic that has threatened our entire world. In these times when systemic solutions have failed, the present special issue of Ekistics and the New Habitat, ‘India & Jugaad - The impact of innovation by the resilient Indian mind on habitat’ is of particular relevance.
