There should be some hope for life around us especially during such times (coronavirus fear). We don’t know if we are going back home or not. My friend is shooting this video on the ship. I have been stuck in this profession (being a crew member on a cruise ship) but my friend is on the ship for the first time. Our families are really scared. We should remain happy and calm in such situations. I want to thank Arijit Singh for singing many songs that bring hope and happiness in such situations. I want to say to the people that we should move forward in life by solving our problems, no matter how bad the circumstances are. That’s what life is all about.”
In addition, he wrote on his timeline, “Kuchh entertainment kar rahe hain sab Dost milke…feeling better…”
Binay Kumar and the other Indians stuck on the ship have been sending SOS to the Indian government for rescue. Earlier on February 10, Binay posted a video on his Facebook timeline saying “Today 66 more people are infected with coronavirus… Day by day the number of infected people is increasing… Request Indian government to rescue us from the ship.”
