Bollywood Joins Global Artists As Storytellers With Save The Children During Lockdown

– Celebrities read children’s books, spreading warmth and supporting child rights charity

New Delhi, 2 April: As the world adapts to limitations imposed by the lockdown, there has been myriad new material made available for children. Swamping the cyber space with creative ways to keep children engaged, the online cultural race has shifted to another, less likely target: the humble children’s story.

Dia Mirza, Bollywood Actress and Artist Ambassador, Save the Children, and Soha Ali Khan joined Hollywood celebrities Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams on social media in telling the world their favourite children’s story through #SaveWithStories. Other Bollywood celebrities are soon catching up in support of the child rights organisation that works for the most vulnerable children and marginalized communities, to bring some levity during the ongoing national lockdown, as experts extol the importance of regular routines for children.

In a post on Instagram, Dia Mirza, who read a Shel Siverstein story called The Giving Tree, wrote, “While our kids will stay safely in our home, many children who live on the fringes of society without shelter or protection, leaving them more vulnerable and exposed than ever. The story I have chosen is dedicated to those children across the world. We can HELP children in India now by supporting @savethechildren_india @savewithstories who will continue to reach children at risk of disease and infection through their programmes. It’s simple, #SavewithStories – grab a tale for kids that inspired you when you were young or a story you discovered as i did looking for good books to share with children, put out a book reading video on a post or a story and ask your friends to #SlowTheCurve by donating at www.savethechildren.in/savewithstories

I nominate @sakpataudi @nehadhupia @varundvn @bipashabasu @gulpanag @karanjohar to pick up and read their favourite story for children #StayHomeStaySafe”.

Soha Ali Khan in turn tagged five other celebrities to host the storytelling session in support of Children living on the fringes of society. With the lockdown affecting stars just as much of the rest of the population, film and television artistes are joining the viral moment in harmony. The Children’s story trend is also reaching beyond the usual celebrity circles, with media personalities adding their name to the list of storytellers.

#SavewithStories is an initiative of Save the Children to help children from marginalized communities have continued access to nutrition, health services, education and social protection, more so in the current time when children are getting most affected.

Legal Action Against Violators – Enforce Coronavirus Lockdown States Told

Coronavirus Lockdown: Many people are still not taking the lockdown seriously, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted this morning. He also urged states to ensure that the directives are followed by people.

The government today ordered states to “strictly enforce lockdown” and asked for legal action against those who violated the restriction, a day after 80 districts across the country were brought under a shutdown to check the spread of coronavirus, which has infected more than 400 people.

Many people are still not taking the lockdown seriously, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted this morning. He also urged states to ensure that the directives are followed by people.

“Many people are still not taking the lockdown seriously. Please save yourself, save your family, follow the directives seriously. I request the state governments to ensure that the rules and laws are followed,” the Prime Minister tweeted in Hindi.

Soon after, a government notice took on a tougher tone, warning of legal action against violators.
