The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a standstill. India is currently under a 21-day lockdown amidst this pandemic. Hence to keep up people’s spirit during this lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to the public to turn off all their lights on April 5, at 9 p.m. for 9 minutes and just burn candles, earthen lamps or use their mobile flashlights. PM Modi wanted this activity to be done to bring a feeling of integrity amongst fellow Indians during this ongoing crisis.
Actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh were among the many people who took part in this activity. Deepika Padukone took to Instagram and shared a picture of a candle to show her participation in this activity. Deepika’s husband Ranveer reposted this picture on Instagram.
