Important Precaution if You are Lighting Candle on Sunday

Important Precaution if You are Lighting Candle on Sunday

prime ministernarendra modi has appealed to voluntarily switch off lights between 9:00 p.m to 9:09 pm on april 5th. “Please switch off the lights of your house — and then either at the door, or in the balcony of your house, please light a candle, a diya, or flash the mobilephone light. That light will show that no one is alone,” he said.

However, there are certain precautions that need to be taken when handling fire. The sanitizers that have been advised for usage have a high amount of alcohol and are thus highly inflammable. Contact with a flammable object can cause serious injuries.

Following this, the government of india has asked the people not to use hand sanitizers near any fire or heating place as the alcohol content in them can cause severe burns. Citizens are asked to wash their hands with soap and water before you go to light the fire. They should also ensure there is no bottle of sanitizer kept near the window or anywhere near where you'd light the candles. So, people better be careful tomorrow. Today is the eleventh day of the 21 days Lockdown in India.
