Minutes before the country lights up as a symbol of unity and peace at 9 PM upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal to fight the Coronavirus, a new term has been coined for the first of its kind event.
Taking to Twitter, and inviting the citizens to participate in the massive event, PM Modi coined the term 'Ekta Diwali' (Diwali of Unity) for the 9 pm- 9 minutes show of unity and light to be observed on April 5, Sunday.
