The Indian system and her people were never so helpless than they appear to be today with their Prime Minister resorting to superstition to extricate people from terror of the pandemic corona virus even though the virus has the least impact compared to developed nations. The Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked Indians to put off their modern lighting for nine minutes at precise nine o'clock, and stand in open space in their residences with the traditional lamps, candles, or any other light-source in their hands during that period. The directive is almost to say to go back to the preindustrial revolution era.
The dread of the pandemic corona virus has allowed a free play for human traits. Most do not see the light in the dark alley they are caught as the terror of corona virus spread mercilessly across the world. They are reducing to basic trait of holding, without comprehension of fuller facts, someone responsible for the abyss they are pushed into. They do not relish that nature has forced them all to live in ancient era but cannot locate the cause of the Nature’s fury. The ruling regime becomes target easy to blame for.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s light and sound show, or for the order to be right, sound and light show, as part of his national strategy to fight the coronavirus threat amounts to taking symbolism to the level of fantasy, or farce, as his detractors would rather like to consider it as.
India is in dark era due to unmitigated impact of the pandemic Corona virus brought to India by visitors. It pushed India in a dark age totally contrasting from earlier times to force humans to realize that their power, their money wealth and their personal beauty and environmental surrounding was no asset when nature makes them to fight for the oxygen to breath for life. It was critical time for political ideas and colours of identification were pushed aside to meet the challenge as the united body. Instead the different colours continue to assert.
