    A Lockdown is much required. Yes we will have to face difficulties, but it's ok. Now it's the time to control this spread of Covid-19.

    Secondly, people must understand that no magic is gonna happen banging the plates or lighting diyas. It was just matter of thanks giving and appreciation to the warriors of Covid-19.

    WE ALL ARE RESPONSIBLE, whether to spread or not. It's our responsibility to follow the directives and safety measures issued for our safety. There are instances people carry this virus unknowingly and fall severe ill suddenly. We can only pray at this moment and be a responsible citizen.

    Even these days we see people crowded, no safe social distancing, no masks worn etc. Please understand our prayers to God is to save us from this pandemic, but he can bless you with smartness and it is up to you how you use it.
