Award-winning music composer AR Rahman took to his Facebook page to spread an important message to his fans and followers in the wake of coronavirus pandemic.
The composer said that it's time to forget our differences and unite against the invisible enemy. He also said: "God is inside your heart (the most sacred shrine), so this is not the time to cause chaos by congregating in religious places. Listen to the government's advice. Self-isolation for a few weeks may give you many more years. Do not spread the virus and cause harm to fellow humans. This disease does not even warn you that you are a carrier, so don’t assume you are not infected. This is not the time to spread false rumors and cause more anxiety and panic. Let's be kind and thoughtful, the lives of many millions are in our hands".
Rahman also thanked doctors, nurses, and hospital workers. He urged the public to help senior citizens and underprivileged people. "This message is to thank the doctors, nurses and all the staff working in hospitals and clinics all around India, for their bravery and selflessness. It fills one’s heart to see how ready they are to deal with this most dreadful pandemic. They risk their lives to save ours.It’s time to forget our differences and unite against this invisible enemy that has turned the world upside down. It’s time to bring the beauty of humanity and spirituality into action. Help our neighbors, senior citizens, the underprivileged and migrant workers", wrote the composer.
