To create awareness on the spread of coronavirus in the state, Kerala Police has released a dance video made in the form of a parody of the recent superhit Tamil song, Enjoy Enjaami. In the video, we can see nine uniformed police personnel dancing to the 1.30-minute video.
What do the lyrics say?
The lyrics of the song have been penned to create awareness on the spread of the virus and the need to protect oneself from it by wearing a mask properly, maintaining social distance and using hand sanitiser. The video further emphasises the need for everyone to get vaccinated as part of the Covid-19 prevention drive.
The awareness video was directed by Police Media Center Deputy Director VP Pramod Kumar, and Hemant R Nair, Shifin C Raj and Rajeev CP are the cameramen. Aditya S Nair and Rajesh Lal Vamsha have penned the lyrics, and Nahoom Abraham and Nila Joseph have sung the song.
The video has been shared on the social media handles of State Police Media Center Kerala with the title ‘Let’s fight the pandemic together, Kerala Police is always with you’. Since being shared, it has garnered over 3 lakh views, 9,000 shares and 15,000 ‘likes’
Kerala Police’s earlier hand wash dance
This is not the first time that Kerala Police was at their innovative best. In March 2020, their ‘Hand wash dance’ was a massive hit.
In the video, six kerala police personnel can be seen in full uniform, wearing masks and dancing to the Kalakatha song from the hit Malayalam film Ayyappanum Koshiyum. The song was an attempt to educate the public about the safe method of washing hands as prescribed by WHO (World Health Organisation).
Kerala pandemic situation perilous, says CM
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday, April 27, said that the pandemic situation in the state was perilous. He said that only a relentless and pre-emptive vigilance against the covid pestilence could forestall a “more severe lockdown”.
“What we see in other States could happen in Kerala if we drop guard against the disease,” he said.
Warning of the grave situation, the Chief Minister requested citizens to postpone social events, like weddings.
