In any other circumstance, postponement/cancelation of Olympics would have been a huge disappointment for the athletes who have been preparing for that one day for the longest time. But since this postponement was so that the rapid spread of coronavirus could be controlled, the decision was widely accepted.
Former Indian shooter and Olympic silver medalist, Rajyavardhan Rathore chatted with Indian cricketer Suresh Raina and discussed how productive this lockdown can be. Only difference was that this chat was through a social media platform.
जी हाँ बिल्कुल सही कहा आपने
Only "U" & "l" can break the chain…🙏

The Olympian said, “We have heard and read about World War I and II, but this is like World War III. We have seen catastrophes like the plague and the Spanish flu (but) today, the advantage we have is that the whole world is connected and we can learn from each other’s mistakes.”
So proud to see the whole nation following the advisories & observing the #JantaCurfew! Thank you all the doctors, nurses, caregivers, armed forces, support staff, airport staff & everyone else out there working relentlessly for us in these difficult times. #IndiaFightsCorona 🙏 pic.twitter.com/WG4J7JiOwv

Raina also shared his views on lockdown and expressed that somehow it has brought us closer to the nature. Both the sport stars have asked their fans to support the lockdown as it something that only has long term benefit.
