Since lockdown lifted in India, several reports have come that people are flouting the corona guidelines by not maintaining social distancing and also roaming without wearing masks. Amid this violation, a journalist has found a way to teach lessons public with the help of a donkey.
Yes, you read right! A video is doing rounds on the social media in which the journalist tried to speak with a donkey sitting on the road. He asked the animal why it was sitting on the road without wearing a face mask during coronavirus. He put his mic on the donkey's mouth to get an answer from him.
As everyone knows that animals can’t speak to humans, hence, the journalist got no answer from the donkey.
After getting no response from the animal, the journalist moved to a passerby who was not wearing a mask. In his conversation with the man, the reporter sarcastically compared the man with the donkey for not wearing a mask like the animal.
The journalist referred to the donkey and asked the passerby that why the animal didn’t respond to his question.
The man replied, “ye gadha hai (it is a donkey)”, thereby proving the reporter's point.
The reporter immediately responded to man’s answer: “Gadha jo hai, woh lockdown mein bahar ghoomta hai aur mask nahi lagaata hai (A donkey roams outside during the lockdown and doesn't wear a face mask).”
Eventually, the witty journalist made man to admit that he is a donkey for not wearing a face mask while stepping out.
The viral video of the journalist has also sought Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Arun Bothra's reaction on Twitter.

The same technique he followed with other people who are roaming without wearing a face mask.
Meanwhile, the internet is praising the journalist for his unique way to spread awareness among people.
