“बहुतेरे इलाज बतावें ,जन जनमानस सब , केकर सुनैं, केकर नाहीं, कौन बताए इ सब ; केयु कहिस कलौंजी पीसौ, केयु आँवला रस केयु कहस घर म बैठो, हिलो न ठस से मस ईर कहेन औ बीर कहेन, की ऐसा कुछ भी Carona , बिन साबुन से हाथ धोई के ,केहू के भैया छुओ न ; हम कहा चलो हमौ कर देत हैं , जैसन बोलैं सब आवय देयो , Carona-फिरोना , ठेंगुआ दिखाऊब तब !" ~ अब
While giving a splendid demonstration of his poetic skills, the 77-year old expressed to his followers that, people talk of all sorts of cures and remedies, but how do we know whom should we listen to. Some suggest odd herbs and concoctions while others tell you to stay safe at home. But the right thing to do is to not touch anyone without washing your hands.
Bachchan's message comes at a time when more than 70 people in the country have been infected by the highly contagious virus.
