Ab inhein dawa ki nahin, dua ki zaroorat hai.
This is one of the concepts Indians have internalised, thanks to Bollywood - that when medicine doesn't work, praying does.
Now, we all know Corona virus has spread all over the world and that there is no solid cure for it.

In a video that has emerged from Rajasthan, a group of women can be heard singing Corona Bhag Ja Bharat Tharo Kain Kam Re.
Which translates to: Corona go away, there’s no work for you here in India.
That's another very Indian thing. Ki hamare ghar mein na ho, baaki we don't care.
