Indian milkman comes up with 'invention' to maintain social distance

A photo of a milkman in India who introduced a creative technique to deliver milk while practicing social distancing from his customers has left social media users impressed, Khaleej Times reported.

From playing games across balconies to rickshaw drivers splitting their passenger areas, numerous stories of people carrying out daily tasks while maintaining social distancing in creative ways have emerged, and this milkman’s ‘invention’ has become another example.

The photo of the creative milkman was shared on Twitter by an Indian Administrative Service officer, Awanish Sharan, @AwanishSharan, among others.

The viral picture shows the milkman using a funnel and pipe to pour milk into a customer's pan to properly maintain social distance from the customer. In the picture, he is also seen sporting gloves and a facemask under his helmet.

Judging from the license plate on the motorcycle, Indian media outlets have concluded that the undated photo was taken in Madhya Pradesh.

Netizens appreciated the worker’s creativity and effort to keep himself and others safe.
