Nitin Phaltankar. It was 6 in the evening. When we had just reached the village, a siren started blaring. Children playing on the roads were seen running towards the houses. On the other hand, their parents also came out of their houses to find them on the roads and take them home.

We were thinking about this. Because such conditions were seen in Britain during the Second World War. Then there used to be a stir among the people as soon as the German plane was seen. Such a scene was seen in Jakekurwadi in Osmanabad district of Maharashtra. When inquired, it was found that this is done because it was a challenge to keep children away from mobile and TV after Corona.

To remind the children of the time, the siren rings at 6 o'clock, after which they come home and start studying wherever they are.
