BCCI president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday visited Belur Math, the global headquarters of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, to hand over 2000kgs of rice for the needy in his bid to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Visited belur math after 25 years… handed over 2000kgs of rice for the needy,” Ganguly said in a tweet.

The Belur Math had earlier stopped all spiritual initiation to be held at the Math and distribution of noon-prasad, besides banning gatherings in large number inside the main temple till further notice to stop any spread of the coronavirus.

All enquiries regarding spiritual initiation will be entertained after 14 April. The order has also closed the museum christened Ramakrishna Sangraha Mandir until further notice.

Ganguly had earlier pledged to provide free rice worth Rs 50 lakh to the needy people who have been put in government schools for safety and security amid the coronavirus pandemic.

India is under a 21-day country-wide lockdown as the government is taking up various measures to combat the spread of Covid-19 that has led to a global health scare. Several countries across the globe have imposed lockdowns and closed their borders amid the pandemic that has led to more than 42,300 fatalities as of 1 April.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the global sporting calendar. The Tokyo Olympics has been postponed in an unprecedented decision and other major events, including the NBA and the European football leagues, have been either suspended or cancelled.

A few sporting bodies are already thinking of options to make sure a safe environment prevails once normalcy returns after the ongoing crisis.

Sports figures and athletes from all around the world are trying to do their bit in helping out the people in need during this time of crisis as the world continues its fight against the deadly virus, which has already claimed over 36,000 lives globally and infected more than 750,000 people after originating in Wuhan, China late last year.

The total number of coronavirus cases in the country to now stands at 1965 including 1764 active cases, 150 recoveries and 50 deaths.
