Setting an example, Assam Agriculture and Veterinary Minister Atul Bora "celebrated" Mother's Day by observing social distancing norms, which have been prescribed by the Government of India as a "social vaccine" against the deadly COVID-19 vrirus that has infected millions globally.

In a heartwarming picture that the Minister shared on social media, he can be seen bowing his head in front of his aged mother, while maintaining a healthy distance. Bora's mother can be seen wearing a mask as a precaution against the COVID-19, while a dog, presumably Bora's pet, looks on in bewilderment.

The Minister captioned the photo, "In times of adversity, it's a mother's blessings that give us strength to overcome the crisis. For me, my Mother is a source of genuine love and inspiration, an embodiment of courage & tolerance. My heartfelt greetings to all mothers of the world on the occasion of Mother's Day."

In the midst of the ongoing lockdown necessitated by the pandemic, Bora has recently lit up the social media sphere with some new ideas and concepts.

Perhaps hinting at the need for human beings to return to agricultural roots amid the pandemic, the Minister not too long ago took to social media to post videosand pictures of himself tilling the land. The footage, naturally, earned Bora laudits from netizens for his apparent humility and espousal of a message of finding bliss in agriculture and farming. Once the mainstay of the Indian Economy, these are quickly being replaced by the services sector. However, ever since the pandemic struck, there have been numerous reports that the people are considering the option of farming as a serious vocation.
