After taking part in the curfew, people gathered at their windows and balconies to clap and bang thalis. While netizens took to social media to share videos of the same. Actress Shruti Hasan took to her Twitter handle and wrote, "Errrrm why are so many people all stuck together to bang their plates in public ? And why are some people holding mini concerts ? aren’t we supposed to be isolated in our own balconies "
A few users agreed to the actress and wrote while others were of different views.
"Bruh may be if you knew what modi ji had told two days back. ppl are clapping or banging plates whilst standing in balconies of their houses," wrote a user.
Another user wrote, "Point noted shruti, we should maintain social distancing..it was People's gratitude,prayer & affection towards our doctors, nurses & all those who risk their lives for us to carryout their work inspite of Coronavirus outbreak."
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had requested people to clap and bang plates at 5 PM to express their gratitude to doctors, nurses, paramedics, municipal staff, armed forces etc. who are risking their lives to keep the nation healthy amid the coronvirus outbreak.
