AbstractCoronavirus disease—widely known as Covid-19—is a lethal illness caused by Coronavirus whose first case was found in China in December 2019. The disease has shaken the world from its roots and everybody—from politicians, media persons, celebrities to street vendors, farmers, and my neighborhood daily wage workers (Doctors have been deliberately avoided because they talk about it the least, at least not in public places)—faced problems, but interestingly when they had the chance to opine about it they had their say. There are a lot of overlaps and the same amount of difference of opinions. One of the common talking points: Coronavirus Vaccine — when will medical researchers find it out? And there are numerous announcements from various countries—India is also part of it. Amish Tripathi is an Indian author writing in English. He has written six novels. In his novel The Immortals of Meluha, he uses Somras—a divine drink that cures all kinds of illness. This article is a dissection of the fictional medicine used in the novel to discover if it can be used to cure Coronavirus.
