Doctors said that it is a mild case of Corona and I was asked to stay home and take medication as prescribed. But, I didn’t want to do that as my family is very concerned. So, I got myself admitted to the hospital. All my friends are here and I’m in good hands. I’m in good health and nobody has to worry about me. So, please don’t bother to call me and find out how I am. I’m perfectly alright except for the cold. Even the fever has subsided. In two days, I will be alright. Thank you for your concern. I couldn’t attend every single call. I have come here mostly to take rest, so that there won’t be any disturbance.
Thank you. I am fine, I will be fine.”
