This #JantaCurfew is not a curfew but Care for you. Hum sabko ekjut rehna hai par ikattha nahi hona hai.— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) March 20, 2020
Sabki khwaish rehti thi ki gharwaalon ke saath samay bita paayein. Ab woh samay aur mauka mila hai.
Ghar mein Carrom, Ludo ,Saanp Seedhi khelkar purani yaadein taza kijiye
Gharwaalon ke saath ghar mein baithkar mast baatein kijiye,antakshari kheliye, kitaabein padiye, apne favourite shows dekhiye, yoga/exercise kijiye,naye naye dishes try kijiye,— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) March 20, 2020
Par please ghar se mat nikliyega,aap se dil se vinanti karta hoon.
Kisi bhi bheed ka hissa nahi baniye
Kisi ko party na dein,na lein. Bahaar khelne na jaayein. Poori zindagi padhi hai uske liye.Apne aas paas swachta rakhein. Aapki zimedaari na sirf aapke jeevan ki hai balki jis jiske sampark mein aa rahe ho un sabki hai. Apne aap ke saath rehne ka mauka kam milta hai,ganvaiyee mat— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) March 20, 2020
