BanglaHunt Desk: Corona virus (COVID-19) infection has spread like wildfire all over the world, but people are reading Hanuman Chalisa. The corona crisis is also growing in the country at the moment. So far, more than 36,000 people in India have been infected with the corona virus. In this difficult situation, the government has also extended the lockdown period till May 18. The entire country is now under house arrest.
All religious places have also been closed to comply with the government order issued for the lockdown. As a result, people are now worshiping the deity sitting at home instead of in the temple. At this time, however, due to the ban on going out, people are spending more time at home with their families. Watching TV, gossiping stories, even playing various indoor games among themselves while maintaining distance. However, Hanuman Challisa has overwhelmed all these things.
The number of people searching for Hanuman Challisa on Google and YouTube has risen sharply since the lockdown, the survey said. Probably, only God can save everyone from this disaster, that is why many people are now reciting Hanuman Challisa at home.
According to the search, for the last 12 months, the rate of searching for Hanuman Chalisa on Google by March 21, the day before the Janata Curfew, was quite normal. But after the announcement of the lockdown, the search for Hanuman Chalisa has increased very fast since March 24. Between April 5 and 11, the search volume was close to 100 percent. The number of people searching for Hanuman Challisa on YouTube from March 22 to April 11 has also increased tremendously. Hanuman Chalisa has been viewed by 982 million people on the official YouTube channel of the T-series.
April 6 this year was Hanuman Jayanti. Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated on the full moon of the month of Chaitra. Every year on that day, on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti, a large crowd gathers at the temple and people store in different places. But because of Corona, this time everyone celebrated Hanuman Jayanti at their home. Even on this day, many people search Hanuman Chalisa many times.
