Brazil invokes Lord Hanuman while asking for medicine

Apr 08, 2020 16:31 IST

Hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malarial drug that US President Donald Trump touts as cure for coronavirus patients, has become one the most sought after drugs worldwide, and India has found itself in the middle of its heightened demand. After America, it is now Brazil that is asking for its export - and in a unique style. Invoking Lord Ram, Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro wrote to PM Modi saying "Just as Lord Hanuman brought the holy medicine from the Himalayas to save the life of Lord Rama's brother Laksmana, and Jesus healed those who were sick and restored the sight to Bartimeu, India and Brazil will overcome this global crisis by joining forces and sharing blessings for the sake of all peoples."
