India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi called out the citizens of his country to come out of their windows and balconies on 5th April at 9 pm for 9 minutes to light candles and diyas in gratitude for the individuals that continue to work and fight against the COVID 19 pandemic. Bollywood celebrities also join in hands to act upon PM Modi’s 9pm 9min call initiative.

Almost the entire India came outside of their balconies with a candle or diya and illustrated their determination for combating the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

Bollywood stars show their solidarity

Adhering to this initiative by PM Modi, Bollywood stars also showed their solidarity. Many stars from the Indian film industry stood out in their balconies to light candles and diyas for 9 minutes today. These stars posted their videos and pictures on social media.

A long but inspiring note was written by Anushka Sharma on how prayers never go in vain. She shared a picture of herself with husband Virat Kohli.

Anushka wrote: “I light a diya everyday for many years now. And as I light the diya I seek guidance, asking for the darkness in me to be dispelled. For many days since the turn of the recent events across the world, I have prayed to God to end the suffering of so many who are losing their lives without their families beside them, for the less-fortunate and the needy whose lives have turned upside down completely, for all the healthcare professionals who are working tirelessly & bravely to protect the lives of other beings, for those who are uncertain about their jobs and future. So tonight, I prayed extra for everyone and I lit diyas with the whole of India and we all prayed for each other. Prayers never go in vain (sic).”
