Mumbai police have come up with another creative meme inspired by the newly released web series Pataal Lok on Amazon Prime. The series had been making rounds on social media for all the right reasons when Mumbai Police decided to use it for its own benefit. To put forth an advisory message on social distancing measures in the midst of the fourth phase of nationwide lockdown, Mumbai police took reference from the pivotal dialogue of the show which described the three Loks.

In the web series, the protagonist explains to his colleague that the universe is divided into three Loks namely ‘Swarg Lok’, ‘Dharti Lok’, and ‘Paatal Lok’. In the series, the protagonist says that Swarg Lok is the place where God resides while humans live in Dharti Lok. He adds that Paatal Lok lies at the bottom where insects live. Mumbai Police shared the meme with a caption which called for staying at ‘Grih Lok’ (home) further emphasizing the message of social distancing.

The Mumbai Police has been famous for its social media presence in the past. A couple of days back, it won the hearts of netizens by targeting the “fake news peddlers” using dialogue from newly released Pataal Lok on Amazon Prime.


Since the image has been posted it has garnered hundreds of likes and retweets. One of the internet users also posted laughing emoticons and many were seen being hysterical with Mumbai Police’s ‘savage’ response. Another Twitter user even noted that the Mumbai Police took a “brilliant” take on the issue and even tagged official handles of other police officials and advised to ‘take cue’ from the former. Many agreed that news received on Facebook-owned WhatsApp is "always false".

The police had earlier asked internet users to not share their passwords with anyone, the department used a popular meme-inspired from the series The Mandalorian, featuring the famous character Baby Yoda.
