He believes that it’s very important to educate the people about the disease. "The biggest precaution to take is to save ourselves, before saving others". The last eight months had been very challenging as a doctor. Dr. Charu added that one cannot rely on vaccines, rather it’s we the people who have to fight the disease and take proper precautions.
"Fashion and Entertainment industry is going through a very tough time", he claimed. He is an ardent follower of the renowned designers. Both health and fashion goes together, he added. Though pandemic has affected fashion industry in great terms but because of the presence of virtual platforms, these indutries managed to stay connected to people and survive.
