In lieu of the current pandemic Coronavirus (COVID-19), the entire nation is currently under lockdown until April 14 with only essential commodities being available. Under such circumstances, Social distancing has been given the prime importance to help stop the spread of the disease. 

To promote social distancing, a lot of efforts are being made by Government and celebrities across the country. For instance, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma posted a video on Social Media requesting the citizens to follow social distancing sincerely.

While many initiatives are being taken by the Government to control the spread of Coronavirus, this special request by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi is another attempt to promote togetherness, and bring the nation together to fight the darkness of the virus with the light of fire. 

Setting Sunday, April 5, 9 pm as the date, PM Modi requested citizens to turn off the internal house electricity for exactly 9 minutes and instead light-up a diya or a lamp or even a mobile torch at that time to symbolize victory over the darkness of virus. 

Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and many other star Cricketers tweeted supporting PM Modi’s appeal. In India, millions go crazy over their favourite cricketers. Similarly, cricketers promoting such noble causes is heartening, and an efficient way to reach out to the masses.

Cricketer Reactions: 

Our cricketers are standing up for the nation, once again, albeit off the pitch. It’s inspiring to see them coming forward and promoting a call for national unity. Therefore, like Virat Kohli, and other cricketers, let us all follow PM Modi’s appeal sincerely in this test of patience and discipline against COVID-19. In other words, let us fight together to throw this virus off the pitch.

Thanks for reading! We hope people take the lighting activity seriously in lieu to fight the pandemic Coronavirus.
