After Janta Curfew, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the lockdown of 21 days till April 14 as a preventive measure. Today (April 3), PM Modi shared a video message with the nation amid the COVID-19 crisis and urged people to switch off all the lights of their houses and light candles, diyas or their mobile phones’ flashlights at 9 pm on April 5 for 9 minutes to mark their fight against COVID-19.

Lighting Diyas is a very good gesture, diya creates an ethereal aura which is very calming and effective, to show each other our support let’s do this, I love how @narendramodi ji also focuses on our emotional needs and tries to heal us in every way …. Jai Shri Ram…

Before idiots start trolling the PM, I must put on record that @narendramodi is the best leader India can get.
He knows how to lead Indians emotionally and spiritually. There is no other way out.
