A restaurant called Temple City Hotel in Madurai, Tamil Nadu came up with a creative concept to raise awareness regarding COVID-19. Here's what they did.
Covid Awareness- Priced at INR 50 ONLY
Why did they do this? A staff at the restaurant claimed that people in Madurai are not very particular about wearing face masks. With a steep rise in the number of cases in recent times, the restaurant, located about 1.2 km away from Maattuthavani bus terminus decided to urge people to limit the ignorance against the crisis and urge the population to take precautionary measures.
The eatery did not restrict its creativity to Parottas but they built a full menu based on the Covid crisis. Food items like corona dosa and vada cooked in the shape of the virus took to the menu of Temple City Hotel.
"Do Not, I Repeat, Do NOT Eat Your Mask" Just as the restaurant in Madurai launched this very creative solution and became a good Samaritan, social media had a very mixed approach to this. It was obvious that this news would spread like wildfire across social media platforms but a series of memes followed suit.
While some found it extremely hilarious, some proposed viable ideas for the restaurant. One said "Do Not, I repeat, Do NOT eat your mask" another tweeted "If they sell it along with an actual mask, it would be good. They should charge extra 10-20 rupees for it".
The staff also mentioned that ever since they launched this menu and the pictures of the Parotta Masks went viral, people have appreciated it and started ordering them online too.
It's good to see such creative ideas popping up to make people aware of the entire scenario. It sure is a laudable move.
