Legendary Bollywood singer Lata Mangeshkar took to her micro-blogging account, earlier on Friday, and appealed to her followers to pay heed to the guidelines given by the government. Her tweet came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to the citizens of India to stand united in the fight against novel coronavirus pandemic and asked them to light candles and torches for 9 minutes at 9 PM on Sunday, April 5 outside their balconies. The 92-year-old singer also wrote a Sanskrit mantra for the well-being of everyone and stated that she is genuinely concerned for the health and safety of all.
