The family plays a pivotal role in inculcating healthy habits among children. In light of these exceptional circumstances, it is mandatory for all of us to have healthy lifestyle and habits. Our commitment is a national obligation that helps us to tide over this crisis. The gradual opening of business and life will not be successful unless we all comply with the guidelines.
