Neutrino masses: Where we are, where we are going and why is it important?

Discovery of neutrino oscillations in various experiments during the past two decades have established that neutrinos have mass, contrary to the common belief held for nearly half a century. The activities in experimental and theoretical as well as astrophysical and cosmological fronts have gone exponential following this discovery, uncovering many more details about neutrino properties. In this talk, after a brief overview of where we stand now in this field and where we are going, I will discuss some key theoretical hints that have emerged regarding physics beyond the standard model from the current results and suggest ways to test them experimentally.
