As we observed a nationwide Janta Carfew yesterday, the countrymen also responded to PM Narendra Modi’s call and came out in their balconies and windows at 5 PM to clap and thank the police, medical staff and other essential service providers for their relentless and tireless service at the time of crisis. Actor Ayushmann Khurrana penned a touching poem, and said how the bad times were uniting people beyond their religions.
“Aaj mere pass koi shabd nahi hai/Aaj koi kavita uplabdh nahi hai/In taaliyon ki goonj aur shankhnath /5 minute ke liye kardiya is bandh sa marushthalabad/Aaj sheher ka pradushan ek hi hua hai par pachaas haiYaha ke pashu pakshi pehle se zyada khushmijaaz hai/ Sabhi chikatsakon aur doctoron shat shat pranam hai/ Iss beemari ko ladne mein kya hindu kya musalman hai/Aaj desh ka manushya lockdown se uthna hathprabh nahi hai,” he is heard saying, as he recites the poem standing in his balcony.
