As part of the national Janata Curfew, a voluntary lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid-19, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also appealed to people to applaud those working in various services in this difficult time. There were plenty of videos of enthusiastic participants, there were plenty of cases where people completely misunderstood the gesture, and then there is this video of “the most innovative thali bajana”.
Twitter user Anu Sehgal shared a video of this unique innovation in which a spoon is attached in place of the blade of a fan and bangs a steel plate multiple times when switched on.
