Day10 - 21 Day Lock Down In India

Today was day 10 of the 21 day lock down in India. Prime Minister Modi came up with a video message requesting all Indians to show solidarity in these difficult times by lighting a candle or diya at 9 pm for 9 minutes on 5th April, Sunday.

Critics started criticizing him from that point onward.  I simply fail to understand the logic behind the criticism. He is not calling or instructing people to do any violent act. The intent seems to be as simple as instilling a sense of unity during such difficult and challenging times in our fight against a deadly virus. I posted this status on Whatsapp in my mobile to express my view on the PM's request:

Today had back to back calls on the work front which kept me busy for most part. In fact, because of all the adhoc calls, some pending tasks will get moved to tomorrow. Despite all this, I did ensure that I complete my Shambhavi practice. This is what makes me feel relaxed after a hectic day of work.
Two Covid19 positive cases that got reported in my locality as per a whatsapp communication received yesterday, was a confirmed news. Today morning, Thane Municipal Corporation workers visited and sanitized the building. In the evening I came to know that the entire building has been quarantined as a precautionary measure. No one will be allowed to move out for 14 days.

Tomorrow need to venture out for groceries and vegetables. Hopefully will be able to get it.
Hoping to hear some positive news over the weekend around the situation in the country. Good night!
