    All must pray to God the Almighty every time of their life.
    We are all transit passengers, some one 's transit is short and some one's transit is long.
    Just think no use of all the wealth and prosperity. No one will take it to our God Almighty, it will not help any one at the moment of our presence for judgement before the Almighty.
    All we take to him is only our Good Deeds and the Help we did to the Needy and Downtrodden.
    Being humble ourselves all through this earthly transit will surely help.
    We will judge ourselves at that fraction of the moment of our Departure from this Rotten World.

    Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was heavily criticized for one of his tweets, which claimed vibrations from clapping, blowing conch shells as part of Sunday's Janata Curfew would have reduced or destroyed corona-virus potency as it was 'amavasya', the darkest day of the month.

    The 77-year-old actor took to Twitter and, in a tweet that has now been deleted, wrote, "T-3479 An opinion given: 5 PM, 22nd Mar, 'amavasya', darkest day of month; virus, bacteria evil force at max potential & power! Clapping shankh vibrations reduce/ destroy virus potency Moon passing to new 'nakshatra' Revati. cumulative vibration betters blood circulation."

    Shameful superstitions propaganda coming from a person with such huge reach. And we have learned to let go of 'besharmi' (shamelessness) of many of our celebs but this is DANGEROUS too.

    Bachchans to Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor: Celebs clap hands, bang thalis to celebrate Janata Curfew.

    Today this T-3590 mega star seen on his roof top clapping is tested 'Covid-19' positive. The rumbo-jumbo rituals seems be not even left the superstar who is living in one of the most luxury life style in one of the high end area of the film city. One of the most crowded poor localities of 'Dharavi' had come out of the pandemic. But for Bachan's number '9' seems to be unlucky which matches with one of the number of 'Covid-19'.

    It is now getting clear that COVID19 is an "airborne infection" & not exclusively spread through coughing & sneezing as thought earlier!!

    BTW, earlier there were reports that disclosing identity of CORONA patients in social media will invite strict penal action, what happened now??

    Anyway, wishing Big B & Jr. B a fast recovery!!

    Big B had Hepatitis B and probably Myasthenia gravis in the past. Hepatitis B is known to damage liver, as he has comorbidity is is correct to get admitted in a hospital in spite of mild symptoms.
