With the world fighting against a pandemic like Corona virus, the lockdown ordered by our Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, is for the benefit of our own and the whole country. I request you to please follow the lockdown, stay at home, eat healthily and help in preventing the spread of the virus."

Strong Intention: To acknowledge that we will win. 3. Discipline: To be inside our homes and help the cause of the lockdown. This is a tough time for all of us but we will face it and win the war against the pandemic and move towards a better India."
