After a successful ”5 Baje, 5 minute” initiative, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had appealed for a “9 Baje, 9-minute’ initiative”, where he urged everyone to switch off their lights at home and light candles, diyas or turn on their phone’s flashlights. And India happily took part in the initiative and marked expression of hope and unity, amidst the grim situation because of Coronavirus pandemic.

I’ve just seen that the number of people on this page has reached a milestone. This wonderful online family is not what I expected when I joined Instagram and I have you to thank for it. I do believe that the quality of connections you make in this age of the internet is far greater than any number. Being a part of your community and learning from you is truly exciting and makes me very happy and I hope our journey together continues.
