Khushbu Sundar wrote: “This is not the time to panic, we need awareness. By not going out, you are doing a great favour to your family. You might think that you are young and strong.
But think about the older people at home. Doctors have already said that if people in their 70s and 80s get affected by Covid-19, their chances of survival are less.
You cannot think that I am holed up inside the house and that there is absolutely nothing to do. When you are working hard, a number of thoughts cross our mind, that we are unable to spend time with children and that we don’t know how our parents are.
Consider this as a blessing in disguise. Stay at home and spend quality time with family. The government of India has asked people to follow Janta Curfew. I am staying at home and I have asked everyone I know to stay at home. Can’t we survive without going out of home for a day?”
