Mumbai Police has been quite creative and innovative in their way of creating awareness among its citizens with their posts and videos on social media. It has recently shared a new message about road safety. On Dussehra, the Mumbai Police posted a small video on its Instagram account to show the importance of wearing helmets.
Mumbai police posted a humorous video on its Instagram page that showed Ravan riding a bike. Ravan stops at a red light at a traffic intersection. At the traffic light, Ravan meets a person riding a scooter without a helmet. Ravan suggests he wear the helmet, but the person had its okay kind of attitude. Looking at his careless behaviour, Ravan asks him in Hindi, "Murkh, mere 10 sar hain tere kitne hain?"
In English, it means, "Moron, I have 10 heads. How many do you have?"
Mumbai Police wrote: "Spare a thought for your safety for you don't have ten heads to spare. Have a happy and safe #Dussehra."
