Aah! Lockdown turned out to be a pretty long haul. But the good news is, that we're now returning to our old lives. But are we really? It's been a bumpy ride, but we're finally all set to welcome the new normal with open arms *sanitized of course!*

It's going to be a brand new world. There'll be familiar practices, but with new rules. Whatever we do, we have to make sure that our safety is not compromised. And while we're doing things differently, we don't necessarily have to stop having fun! And Budweiser agrees with us, which is why it is urging us to share creative hacks to rule the new normal.

Budweiser is running a contest till July 27th and the response has been overwhelming. People from all across India are sending entries of how they are jazzing up their old practices to ace the new reality, safely. You can check out their library of new rules right here on Budweiser's @rulethenew Instagram page. Some of these hacks are super creative, which we are definitely going to be trying out. 

Check out this flamboyant sanitiser boy!
