Extension is positioned to develop and implement high-quality, high-impact experiences for variety of stakeholders. The nature of Extension, work across counties differs because efforts are grounded in the needs of a community. Structural changes in agriculture, new types of agricultural technologies, meagre public budgets, newer policies and government bills, and emerging multifarious type of information and communication technologies usages have led to pluralistic and, in some cases never before mechanisms for implementing extension activities. Sustainability, organic production, oilseed , pulses, climate resilient technologies, nutrition, gender, good agricultural practices, natural resource conservation, information assisted decision making,  leadership are the key issues in current scenario in addition to staying healthy in pandemic situation. Historical evidence shows that the epidemics may display potential disarranging effect on civil society in the form of the policy measures tend to conflict with the interest of people, generating friction between society and institutions, differential impacts on society in terms of economic welfare and induction of irrational narratives due to psychological shock. The present issue of the Indian Journal of Extension Education has tried to focus on almost all the recent concerns. I extend my sincere thanks to all the authors for making valuable contributions.
