Abstract: The rapid advances in communication technologies from 2G to 4G has ushered in a new era of digitalization of our societies. The impending launch of 5G and the ongoing planning for 6G, will further transform our environment, where connectivity becomes as permeable as air, with profound implications for society and industry. Connectivity is taking its place along with “roti, kapda aur makaan”, as an essential for any individual.
