This day, last year India observed Janta Curfew following PM Modi's appeal to people to stay at home. He also urged people to bang thaalis to honour the frontline workers.
As India recorded highest spike in COVID cases since early November, people shared their memories from last year's Janta Curfew.
While some shared videos of people banging thalis from their homes, others made memes and few others expressed concern over the steady rise in the number of COVID cases in India.

One year ago, on this day, a step was taken to fight against COVID-19 followed by massive Lockdown 🔒 and the war is still on.

This day last year we thought group dancing on the streets was a great way to beat Corona. #JanataCurfew— Cow Momma (@Cow__Momma) March 22, 2021
Last year on this day we observed the #JanataCurfew— Aruna (@arunadeka17) March 22, 2021
Pray that we do not face the same anymore. 🙏
Remember how exactly a year ago people thought vibrations caused by banging steel plates would kill the virus...... #JanataCurfew— Alisha Mehrotra (@AlishaMehrotra) March 22, 2021
Exactly 1 year ago this day, half of the Indians registered themselves as “CHEF” on social media 😂😂#JantaCurfew— Nikhil Aggarwal (@nikhil__98) March 22, 2021
On this day in 2020, there was a 'Janta Curfew' in India. We had 361 cases on that day.— RDX (@MandoMunda) March 22, 2021
We have 1,15,99,130 cases today.
We recorded over 43,000 cases yesterday.
No point in banging plates and yelling 'Go Corona Go' when you're a moron who doesn't even wear a mask.
Last year this day people were so excited about Janta curfew, who knew it would become a lifestyle.— kosha (@imkosha) March 22, 2021
Happy Anniversary #JantaCurfew 🙄🥺— Tavishri.2112 (@tavishri) March 22, 2021
P.S. - Wish we don't get to face each other again.💯
It's been one whole year. We also have the COVID vaccine now. Let's hope things get better from here.
