After the entire nation applauded the medical staff and essential service providers for their selfless work during the outbreak of COVID-19, Prime Miniter Narendra Modi had come up with another initiative on 5 April, Sunday. This time everyone was asked to light candles and diyas to dispel the darkness caused by the current situation. The entire nation came out to support the PM’s call and Bollywood celebs too came out to support this initiative.

PM Modi had requested the nation to give their 9 minutes on Sunday. He had asked the citizens to switch off the lights of their homes and come out in their balcony or doors and light up candles, diyas or even use the flashlights of their phones.

Across the nation, it was almost like a blackout at 9 pm yesterday and everyone came out in support as they lit up candles and diyas. Bollywood celebrities such as Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh along with others did their bit too.

The celebs took to their social media handles to share pictures and it was a sight to behold.

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. 🪔💜✨
