The poem praised the doctors who are fighting the pandemic in the hospitals, terming them as the Gods of humanity in the current situation.
Coronavirus in India: Kudos ! John Abraham has taken to social media to recite a poem that rides high on patriotism, courage and determination that India is portraying as a country that stands united in its fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Called “Mera Bharat Mahaan”, the poem has been penned by filmmaker Milap Zaveri and is a description of how India is holding up in the fight against COVID-19.
The first para of the poem talks about how the roads and the country seem to have been deserted as people are confined to their homes. The grounds where children used to play are empty and temples and mosques are closed. On the other hand, the kirana stores are functioning. In the middle of this anomaly, the poem says, people are still courageous, because India is great. The para is followed by a two-line instrumental of the National Anthem.
The poem also praised the doctors who are fighting the pandemic in the hospitals, terming them as the Gods of humanity in the current situation. The poem also states that the country salutes all the police personnel who is on the road, enforcing the lockdown. It also tells people that the biggest contribution that the public can give during the pandemic is to stay at home. The entire world is fighting with one enemy and the Earth has become a warzone. However, the soldiers are still standing on the border fighting with other enemies and being martyred.
The poem recitation ended with a small instrumental version of the National Song ‘Vande Mataram’.
The post by the actor received much praise from the audience.
