Elucidating upon the same, he said, "firstly, every human should gather courage and calmness to fight the battle. Just like hospital treats patients in the hospital, similarly, people should also revive the energy, courage and boost up their morale so that it will help one to overcome such obstacles.

We should have strong control over our emotions so that we do not repent later.”

We should sympathise with the people and their suffering and do whatever we can do to the best of our ability to help them. We should look up to the frontline warriors and healthcare workers who work relentlessly day and night to serve society and save people. Their work is simply worth lauding, similarly, we should also strive hard to work like them.”

Suggesting ways and diet that one should consume during these tough times, he explained, “One should focus on consuming Ayurvedic products like Turmeric, and other immunity-boosting products.

He advised all to be positive and surround with things that would cool down the nerves, senses, and help in soothing your mind. “Try to inherit positive things. If one continuously tries to get surrounded by negative thoughts then he/ she is bound to feel depressed. I am sure we shall overcome this with unity. Regain energy, look out for others and help them in these tough times and by doing this it could prove beneficial for others,” he concluded.
