Knowledge and development are complementary to each other. The connotation of knowledge is broad in the context of development. There is a need for a culture to be patronized by the state and a habit by its citizens to live in a knowledge based society. In the time of deadly corona virus, it is more necessary than before. Perceptions, post-truth, cognitive bias all are very dominant now across the world. Scientific knowledge or quest for knowledge has lost it ground in a highly hostile environment. Who can outperform this epidemic of ignorance? It’s none other than a knowledge based society! Knowledge is truth, and it must show the humankind the right path for a solution. A good number of people are working in laboratories, hospital and academia to bring that knowledge to us. We are awaiting to see that the light of knowledge, sooner it will arrive there.
