With tourist places like Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir seeing number of footfall of visitors after the states eased COVID curbs on tourism, a video of little boy on crowded streets of Dharamshala scolding people for not wearing masks and asking them to wear it has gone viral on social media platforms.

Photos and videos from the hill state show people flouting safety protocols put in place to halt the spread of the virus.

"The illiterate society we live in", the video shared on Twitter is captioned.

In the video, the little boy can be seen wearing a face mask and holding a stick. He asks every person who passes by him, "Tumhara mask kaha hai? (Where is your mask?)" He even pokes them with the stick. Sadly, people pay no heed to the boy's request.

Netizens praised the little boy for asking people to wear masks and criticised the people for not following COVID-19 safety measures.

A third user added, "Age does not equal wisdom". Yet another commented, "They are waiting for 3rd wave to wear mask". Another user wrote, "If civic sense was kicked any harder".
