“We are not able to get out of our homes, we are not able to go for morning walks, we are not able to go to shopping malls, if you think these are hardships, then I have to say, you have not seen real hardships in life, the doctor, nurses, police are not worrying for their lives and they are making sure that we are safe. They have put their lives at risk. I would just like to tell you to stay safe and abide by whatever the state and central government has asked you to do,” Sehwag said in a video post on Twitter.

He had also shared a video of a child who is spelling out the directives perfectly, earlier in the week, stressing the fact that if children can understand the importance of staying at home, why can’t elders.

Sehwag — who never fails to impress his followers with his social media pun — had also shared a video of a ragpicker, who took part in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Janata Curfew clapping initiative, to pay tribute to all the medical staff and healthcare professionals who are working round the clock to treat Covid-19 patients.
