We will get through this
To call the situation we are in a crisis is an understatement. It is heartbreaking to see our fellow citizens falling prey to this deadly virus, whose end seems far, far away at this juncture. At the same time, it is amazing how people are coming together to help one and another.

Even if they are personally suffering from a loss of a loved one, they are finding the strength to lend support to someone else. This willingness to be unconditionally supportive is what will get us through this disaster at the end of the day.

The most exemplary case in point is our own industry – our brethren across the world have thought less about booking profits, and working towards helping us through this unprecedented situation. Be a part of a relief group if you can, do your bit, say a little prayer and if you can’t do any of those things, protect yourself as much as you can.
