The legendary captain of India, winner of the Word Cup, Kapil Dev, said there is much to learn from the current Covid-19 crisis that has led to a global health scare.
Kapil Dev said he always thinks positive and is confident that the world will win the battle against the new coronavirus pandemic by being together.
Emphasizing that it is important to cooperate with the government and care for the elderly, Kapil said that everyone should remember that India's strength lies in its culture.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought life to a standstill worldwide. The virus affected more than 495,000 people and as of March 26, more than 22,000 lives were lost. A 21-day national blockade was imposed in India, in which more than 690 people were infected.
"People will remember the hygiene lessons now. They will learn to wash their hands and not to spit and urinate in public. We have to keep our environment clean," Kapil Dev told The Hindu.
"I wish we had learned these lessons sooner, but I hope this generation does not make those mistakes. I was lucky to be able to learn from my superiors and I am grateful to them."
"I have read and listened to how the human race has fought and I have given examples when facing crises.
"The strength of India lies in our culture: caring for each other and caring for the elderly. We have to seek to help the elderly.
"I know that we will win this battle if we stay together and strengthen the hands of our government and the doctors if we stay inside."

Meanwhile, Kapil Dev also shared how he's dealing with the blockade, saying he's cooking for everyone in his family, among other household chores. Kapil said he learned to live alone during his game days in England.
"I sweep the house, clean the garden. My little garden is my golf course. I am spending so much time with my family."
"Something I had missed in the past few years. I give the cook a break. I cook for everyone. I take turns washing dishes. I learned all this when I was playing in England and Romi joined me," said Kapil.
