Beware! If you are planning to follow the call of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to light a lamp on Sunday, 9 pm (#9pm9mins), think twice. While you follow the 9 pm 9 minutes guideline of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, please follow 9 precautions to stay safe (#9Baje9Minutes).

"Those of you who plan to light 'Diya/ Candle' on 5th April 2020 at 9 pm on April 5, 2020, please ensure that there is no sanitizer on your hand," we found a message viral on social media. The warning is based on scientific facts. This is because of the sanitizers used for COVID 19 have 60 to 70 per cent or higher concentration of alcohol that is highly inflammable. If your light a candle or diya, your hands will catch fire. Therefore you are required to take the following precautions if you are still adamant to light a lamp (diya) or candle to join the call of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi:

2. Smell your hands by putting them close to your nose.

3. Wash it again, if it smells like alcohol.

4. Do not apply sanitizer.

5. Keep sanitizer bottle away from you and the place where you are lighting the lamp.

6. There shall not be any such item like plastic, polythene and other items that could easily catch fire.

7. Be ensure that your dress such as saari, dupatta etc do not catch fire.

8. Keep the lamp or candle away from children.
