As the news of Coronavirus is spreading like fire in the remote areas of India, villagers are gearing themselves up in their own little ways. Nature which has offered its support through thick and thin once again comes to their rescue. SHG women are coming forward from Mandla district to prepare soaps and masks from locally available resources like neem, tulsi and sal leaves, lemon, camphor and alum stone. Though the scientific viability of these to combat Coronavirus can be put to test. But this indeed shows their determination to fight against the odds in times such as these.
