Always be pre 'pav'ed
On Monday, the police had posted another public awareness video on Twitter and Instagram. The video, that urges people to wear masks while stepping outside their homes, explained how one is incomplete without a mask, just like vada, bhurji and kheema without pav. In the caption of the video, the police asked people to always be pre 'pav'ed and used the hashtag #NoMaskaOnlyMask.
