From Banging Utensils to Clapping Hands, India’s ‘5 BAJE 5 MINUTE’ Uniity
With the harmonious musical melodies coming out from every household, every Indian national united in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s move of 22 March ‘Janta Curfew’. Can clapping or creating any such vibrations help curb Coronavirus? That is a question no one can frankly answer. In India, citizens showed solidarity with the move of PM Modi in thanking warriors fighting against the fast spreading Coronavirus pandemic.
The country in just a ‘five-minute’ moment lauded the hard work of medical professionals, sanitation staff, airline crew, and media personals. They have been continuously on their toes and have left no stone unturned in curbing Coronavirus with their actions and words.
Be it young, old, politician, celebrity or a mere worker, all came out to unite in solidarity with this move.

On the scientific side of things, 5 pm IST was the time when the moon was said to be passing into a new ‘nakshtra’ called Revati and cumulative vibrations during that period were said to lead blood circulation in the body. It is also stated by a few that during this hour all evil and negative energy are at the peak and these vibrations can curb their potency to a mere low.
Deep gratitude to millions of frontline warriors working relentlessly to contain #COVID19. I clap for all the doctors, nurses, health and sanitation workers, transport personnel, policemen, media persons & people providing basic necessities as partners to knockdown the pandemic. pic.twitter.com/zqwn1hS7HJ— Naveen Patnaik (@Naveen_Odisha) March 22, 2020
