We live at a time when we have successfully reached Mars, and scientific advancements have progressed from micro to nanotechnology. However, a minute, invisible virus has managed to bring the entire world to a standstill.

Our Sanathana Dharma and Rishis have always emphasized the importance of prayers. The power of prayers can never be underestimated.

I can assure you, my prayer knees are getting a good workout.”
