Man goes out during lockdown in Kolkata with sign ‘going to buy sweets’ around his neck; Netizens laugh out loud

If you are Bengali, you will understand the love for sweets that Bengalis have. It is almost impossible for them to control this particular urge for sweets. Mishti doi, Rosgulla Shondesh, Rasmalai are some of the words which makes your mouth water and heart crave for food. The pandemic and the lockdown became a major hurdle in this cravings. As the sweet shops weren't included in necessary items (though they should have), it felt like going on a forceful diet.

Coming as a good news to Bengalis, the West Bengal government earlier this week permitted the sweetshops to open everyday from 10:00 am to 5 pm. The sweet tooth of Bengalis can finally be satisfied now. The people rejoiced the occasion. An hilarious example of this is a latest video on Twitter that has made netizens have a belly laugh.

The video was posted by Times Now's senior correspondent, Sreyashi Dey. In the video a man in a yellow t-shirt is coming from a distance. One can see a traffic policeman standing there and stopping this man. Just, when the man came close to the cop, the latter stopped him. The man takes a sign out which was hanging on his neck that said 'Mishti Kinte Jachi' meaning 'going to buy sweets' in Bengali.

The video has been poured with love with around 25,000 views and a lot of comments.


The love for sweets triumphs all other love in India.
