Dear All, As a Media Educator/Mentor/Instructor, with deep sorrow and pain, in the state of emergency, when people are getting infected and dying every day worldwide due to this deadly corona virus (CONVID-19) and everybody is in stress, i would like to appeal/suggest you to do not go out of your home unnecessarily and be sincere and responsible on the social media platforms. Please Follow the advisories of the Govt./WHO and do not post/forward any Text/Image/Audio/Video/Content to any individual or group without proper Authentication/Validation/ Reality Check. Since it is the time of social distancing, you can use social media platforms as a tool to promote social bonding in the cyber space and do not spread any sensational/false information, rumours, political doubting and questioning. This is the time to stand in solidarity with humanity. This is not the time to indulge vindictive politics; this is not the time to malign/abuse the administration/ government/system.
