Mumbai Police Take to Social Media with Witty Warning Images on New Years Eve

If you are a social media user, you can rarely miss the witty posts of the Mumbai Police. The strength took to project themselves and to prove that they are friendly and accessible through their relevant messages. While the posts cover serious topics, the police team have been creative in keeping them engaging, educational, and entertaining.

In a recent social media post, Mumbai police issued a subtle warning to keep citizens safe in their homes, avoiding the risks of contracting the novel coronavirus on New Year’s Eve.

What made the post stand out was its perfect pun, using place names in Mumbai to communicate the COVID-19 safety message. The caption of the message read: “I hope you ‘merge’ the ‘connection’ between our request and your safety!” The place shown here was none other than the buzzing Bandra – Worli Sealink.

Images shared in the post by Mumbai Police read: “Gateway – of safety-home!” which pointed to Gateway of India, “Go Home, Back Up The Road, Lokhandwala” and “Don’t Line Up at Marines”.

The post also mentioned Chowpatty – the hangout spot on the beach where people could gather to welcome the New Year – and read “Chow-Party, with your family”. It was to send a clue to the Mumbaikars to celebrate the New Year with the family – indoors.

All four infographics shared on Twitter and Instagram were well written in English and Marathi. Take a look at all the witty warning images, here:
