The Independence Day weekend is upon us, and this is probably after a very long time when the people of Mumbai will actually get to leave their homes and have a good time. This comes after the Maharashtra government relaxed the COVID-19 curbs considerably. However, it goes without saying that one must follow the social distancing norms and take all precautions with respect to the coronavirus pandemic.
