India, March 15 -- Handshakes are a thing of the past at the UT Secretariat in these times of coronavirus. Most officers are opting for the tried and tested Indian namaste to greet each other, while others are choosing a polite nod or the Japanese-style of bowing. However, for one braveheart UT officer, a firm shake of the hand is still the preferred choice. Holding forth on the disease and the general response to it, he recently said: "Precautions areall right but if we let fear take over our lives then we have already lost to the disease."
