This is a serious matter. Stop this).”

Ye sab karne main kya dikkat hai aapko? Agar kisi ki jaan bach rahi hai, jaane bach rahi hai, sekdo jaane bach rahi hai, aapki khud ki, toh kyun nahi kar rahe ho aap? Karo yaar, ye zindagi ka sawaal hai. Please. Darkhwaast hai. (Wear mask, protect yourselves, wash your hands, keep yourself clean, maintain social-distancing. Why can’t you do this if you can save so many lives, including yours? Please do. It’s a request).”
