With the entire under lockdown to prevent the spreading of the deadly coronavirus pandemic, all activities including birthday parties have been put on hold.
But police in Panchkula, a city in Haryana, surprised a senior citizen who lives alone with 'cakes and party hats' to celebrate his birthday amid the lockdown.
The caption of the video shared by Commissionerate of Panchkula reads: "Lockdown Birthdays can be special too. We wish Sh. Karan Puri of Sector 7, Panchkula a Very Happy Birthday."
In the video, the police officers sing the Happy Birthday song for the man and also ask him to cut the cake.
Between such gestures, the elderly man was filled with tears after having a truly heartfelt moment.
The officers also wished him good health.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said economy needs to be given importance too while fighting COVID-19 and asked chief ministers to plan for the way ahead after two phases of lockdowns end on May 3. He also cautioned that the danger is far from over, while Health Ministry said a record number of 60 COVID-19 patients have died in the last 24 hours.
The coronavirus positive cases in India is nearing the 30,000 mark with 936 deaths across the country.
