"Despit being confined to our homes, as a precaution, we can do pretty well by supporting those in need, just in our backyards and the surroundings, by our humble ways", Mr Rana said, adding that even a paltry little contribution can be a huge succour for the hapless brethren, who have been rendered jobless due to lock-down.
"They need us as we have needed them in best of our times", he said, hoping the society will rise to the occasion and demonstrate the bonds of togetherness as per India's rich heritage.
