Amid the 21-day nationwide lockdown owing to the coronavirus crisis, Managing Director of Mercury Travels (part of Ebix), Naveen Kundu has shared an encouraging poem on the situation. The poem suggests that following lockdown guidelines is the only way to save the country. 

In a massive move to mitigate the coronavirus crisis, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 24 announced a 21-day nationwide to contain the spread of the deadly virus, saying that "social distancing" is the only way to deal with the infectious disease. 

Naveen Kundu's Poem:

Desh ko bachana hai

Bahar nahi nikalna hai

Desh ko bachana hai


Khana kam khana hai

Desh ko bachana hai

Haath bhi dohna hai

Lekin pani bhi bachana hai

Is Desh ko bachana hai


Bahar chidya ko khilana hai

Bahar janawar ko bhi khilana hai

Is Desh ko bachana hai


Yeh samai sangharsh ka hai

Yeh samai chunoti ka hai

Hume apna yog daan dena hai

Is Desh ko bachana hai


Is ghadi main dharya se kaam lena hai

Har ghadi sangharsh karna

Is desh ko bachana hai


Har aadami kehta tha mujhe desh ke liye marna hai

Ab samaayi aagaya hai desh ke liye jeena hai


Is desh ko bachana hai


Jai Hind
