Abstract : I will give a broad overview of the present status of inflationary cosmology based on the latest data from Planck 2015. With a brief discussion of CMB and major observables therefrom, I will mostly address two questions: how much do we know about inflation and what can we say about different class of inflationary models till date? I will also highlight on certain avenues to explore further, like the primordial non-Gaussianities, tensor modes, CMB spectral distortions etc.
