A photo of a milkman who has come up with a creative technique to deliver milk while maintaining physical distancing from customers has gone viral on social media. Many have shared the photo and praised his ingenuity.
In the photo, the milkman is seen sitting on his motorcycle with big cans of milk attached on either side. But there’s a big funnel and pipe that allows him to pour milk directly into a customer’s vessel while maintaining distance. The undated photograph appears to have been clicked in Madhya Pradesh given the license plate on the motorcycle.
The photo went viral after IAS officer Awanish Sharan shared the picture on Twitter and got everyone talking online.

Good to see that some people go extra mile to keep themselves and others safe.
Let’s do basic minimum things of staying at home, wearing mask and keeping social distance even if we cannot go an extra mile like this innovative milkman. pic.twitter.com/RrjYVtdaKW
