SEE PICS! One year of Janata curfew; Twitter flooded with memes

On March 22, 2020, a 14-hour janta curfew was imposed to contain the virus and it’s followed by an unprecedented lockdown announced at 8 PM on March 24 for 21 days.
From panic buying to casual shopping, the contrast was inevitably visible.
On March 22, 2021, the Janta curfew is once again trending on Twitter. People are comparing the situation a year ago with the current situation.
At 5 pm on March 22, 2020, all citizens stood on their doorways, balconies or windows, and clap their hands or ring their bells in appreciation for the professionals delivering these essential services.
Social media users are smiling after seeing these photos.
At the end of the Janata Curfew, PM Narendra Modi served notice of a lengthy battle against Covid-19 and more measures to contain and isolate its spread when he thanked people for responding to his call to observe a ‘Janata curfew’ and signal empathy with frontline workers by clapping, ringing bells or banging ‘thalis’ for five minutes at 5 pm on Sunday.
