In his address, Sri Sri Ravishankar said, “The need of the hour is patience. Today everyone in society has a responsibility from social and psychological perspective. To carry forward this responsibility, we need to invoke patience and be in high spirits. If we will be high spirited, that pall of gloom will vanish and this is the time to invoke this positive spirit.” He further continued “We need to display compassion as there is lot of suffering around and this can be done by doing service to others. Whatever we can do as a ‘sew’ for others, we should do it… this is the biggest test of human life. At least at this time, we all have to awaken our devotion to God. We have to move forward knowing that God is there and he will give us strength, and he is giving us strength”. He also drew the attention stating that “We should avoid negative mentality and negative things. Negative things should be reduced as much as possible… and every person should try to lighten the environment around which seems quite messed up. It is certain that we will definitely come out of this crisis as the winner. Whenever any force tries to suppress us, we have become stronger and we have grown further justremember …this is the time to express compassion. Express your inner compassion and awaken faith in God. Pay attention to Yoga-practice and Ayurveda, also pay attention to your health. Be ready to do whatever you can for the good of others. By doing this, our mind would be able to avoid negativity”.

In her address, social activist and Padmashree Nivedita Bhide, Vivekananda Kendra, Kanyakumari said, “Initially the second wave of Corona came with an unexpected speed and hence it took us sometime to gear up but now we can see that at the level of institutions, government as well as society, we have organised ourselves well to meet this challenge.”

“It is important during this challenging time to retain our positivity, engage in creative pursuits together as a family and most importantly do the ‘sewa (service) work. If you can do nothing else, you can at least take care of the Corona affected family in your neighbourhood. If you can’t do even that, then you can at least pray with a resolve for the wellbeing of all. This would create positive virbrations all around and would help a great deal in creating an atmosphere of positivity.” She underscored the need for meeting the challenges collectively in solidarity stating that “We are not an ordinary nation. We have faced many challenges in the past and met them successfully, we will meet this present challenge also successfully.”

Azim Premjiin his address noted, “In this situation, the country must come together as one. We must drop all our differences, understanding that this situation requires unity of action. Together, we are stronger, divided we continue to struggle. While wishing wellbeing and strength, he also draws the attention that “We have to be absolutely focused on the plight of the most vulnerable. All of my actions must give vulnerable the priority as they deserve. I can only urge every one of us to come together and do everything we can and more, because the hour demands it. I wish all of you safety and strength.”
