As India battles with the second wave of the novel coronavirus, some parts of India are also battling with cyclone Tauktae. Some states of India are fighting the double battle.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan took to his Instagram handle and wrote a prayer in these tough times. He wrote about the helplessness and also about the decreasing number of covid-19 cases in some parts of the country.
His prayer is read as, “Stability.. a situation in which something is not likely to move or change.. Please dear Lord something not likely to move.. do not ‘move’ the winds and rains for the fury of its presence.. the destruction of your environ.. the helplessness of the destitute..
Further, he added about the declined number of novel coronavirus cases and wrote, “…something not likely to change’… dear Lord do not stop the ‘change’ of the graphs of improvement, in the repair that is apparently seen in some areas of the virus.. Just ‘move’ the stability that is reportedly seen in both the environs- the storms of Tauktae and the mild improvements in the virus over the land where it disturbs the most.. we pray in the sincerity of our beings.. we have and are doing what humanity believes in its supreme pontiffs.. in the bended knee or the supine servile submission before the unseen force that we all have our faith and belief in… prayers..”
Cyclone Tauktae has affected Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Gujarat. As many as 25 people have died in Gujarat due to cyclone. It has affected around 16,000 houses, 181 electric poles, 196 roads, and around 40,000 trees have been damaged just in Gujarat.
