In an attempt to ease the coronavirus pandemic lockdown and make people take things seriously, a cop from Maharastra adopted a new and unique style to convey the message. Maharashtra police, in an attempt to make people stay at their respective premises, took to singing.
The cop was recorded singing the melody from the movie Sarfarosh named “Zindagi Maut Na Ban Jaye Sambhalo Yaaro”. This in English translates to the phrase, dear friends, do not let your life turn into a deadly death, handle things carefully. This was truly a unique and motivating way to convince people to stay at home and fight the COVID-19.
And yes, Twitter users were quick to catch and circulate this message throughout the social media channels. Anil Deshmukh, the State’s Home Minister also praised the efforts being put in by the Maharashtra police.
