He used to sing just like this at gatherings of poets. I miss him dearly during my loneliness in the hospital, and I use his words to fill my empty nights)”

On Saturday, Amitabh Bachchan stated that Covid-19 indeed, stresses humans out because of staying in isolation for a prolonged period in. He also highlighted the stigma associated with getting tested COVID-19 positive, which primarily involves a patient might wrestle with once the institutional isolation is over.
“Does it have an effect psychologically mentally? Psychologists say it does. Patients after release are tempered, they are given to consultation with professional mind talkers.
“They are afraid to be in public for fear or apprehension of being treated differently, treated as one that has carried the disease, a pariah syndrome. Driving them into deeper depression and in the loneliness that they have just come out of,” Amitabh Bachchan wrote.
