India is taking all the right measures to combat the global pandemic of coronavirus. The number of confirmed cases in the country are close to 11,000 and in this situation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended the lockdown till May 3, 2020. The announcement was made by him on Tuesday morning at 10 AM. India was already in its 21 days of lockdown and now it has extended further. The businesses of many people have been severely impacted and, in this situation, one can do nothing but just stay at home. Reputed wildlife photographer, Bhasmang Mehta shared his views on the extended lockdown.
Mehta hails from Ahmedabad and has currently stopped all of his works thus staying away from the epidemic. While speaking about the lockdown extension, he said, “It is for the betterment of the country. I won’t say that the extended lockdown is good because it is affecting everyone’s business including mine. But it is the best decision of our government. As of now, the safety and health of people are of high importance. My only humble request to all the countrymen is to contribute towards the welfare of the poor and needy people.” Besides this, the photographer also laid emphasis on feeding the stray animals who have no source of food at this moment.
The wildlife photographer who had earlier stated that he spent most of his time in the forests is now making most of his time at home. “I believe this would be the longest time I have been at home. It is truly testing time and I am learning many important concepts of wildlife photography online. YouTube has become my best friend and its always interesting when you get to learn new things”, he quoted. Bhasmang Mehta owns a photography company named ‘Wildlife Sojourns’ which has over the years captured many incredible pictures of wildlife thus showing the true essence of mother nature.
