Dear Colleagues & Friends,
Our world has turned topsy-turvy in a matter of few months. We now live under the threat of another corona virus called Covid-19 which was first detected in Wuhan, China. From there it has spread very rapidly in all the continents and even reached our shores, our hinterland.
Medical equipment such as masks, gloves and ventilators are in short supply and today even medical staff treating patients have succumbed to this deadly virus. We have to practice SOCIAL DISTANCING and STAY INDOORS for the next 3 weeks and more.
Some of you are in your homes in cities and some of you are in the field. For those in the field we hope you are able to reach your homes safely and be with your families in this trying period. We strongly advocate all of you to work from home.
A lot of false news and use of unproven home remedies and drugs are being circulated and we trust you will not be swayed by either.
Let us hunker down together and STAY SAFE till this infectious storm passes. Our solace and joy is hearing the clear warble and songs of birds!
