PM Narendra Modi, recently in a speech, requested the nation to come together to fight against coronavirus. This time, however, the task he asked everybody to perform, was to turn off the lights on April 5, 2020, for 9 minutes at 9 pm. He requested Indians to light candles, diyas or torch lights during that time to stand in solidarity against the battle we are facing with the deadly virus.

Respecting the same, many Mumbaikars across the city, performed the task. Lights were turned off in several areas of Mumbai, and people lit their homes and balconies with diyas and candles. The visuals from many areas looked really beautiful, as though the city was celebrating Diwali. The spirit of such activity is always high, as the citizens unite, leaving all worries, to spread smile and become one. Many astrologers and numerologist predicted this as a strategic move behind choosing '9 baje 9 minute.'

Calling participation across India as 'collective strength', PM Narendra Modi, on Monday, April 6, 2020, said that this period is going be a long haul and as a nation we should not get tired yet, emphasising that our aim will always be to resolve the issue and emerge victorious in this fight against coronavirus.

Mumbai Live asked its users to participate in this historic event and share the visuals via social media. We received an overwhelming response with many entries and our team was able to combine some of them in a video (attached above), to showcase how Mumbai lit up during the '9 Baje 9 Minute' event.
