Guwahati: June 26 holds significant importance as the day is observed as International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. Not wanting to be left behind and in a way of creating awareness among the masses, the Twitter handle of Assam Police gave its followers a hilarious and creative take on the menace.
“Some Lines are not meant to be walked on! Any ‘Yaarana’ with Drugs will surely lead you into ‘arms’ of your friendly neighbourhood ‘Khakee’,” said the post, which was accompanied by a poster that read, “Hum Jahan Khade Ho Jate Hain, Line Wahin Khatam Ho Jaati Hai.”
This line from the popular Amitabh Bachchan starrer movie Kaalia literally translates to “The line ends where we stand,” which is a deviation from the original dialogue that means “the line begins where we stand.” Here, the word ‘line’ refers to the ‘lines’ snorted by drug users, and ‘ends’ has a subtle way of saying “your life ending in a cell of some police station.”
Twitter users were unable to control their reactions to this creative, hilarious and meaningful post that many retweeted it with their own personal spin. Here are a few of them:
- Meghalaya organisation writes to CM, urges action on fuel prices
- Russia’s daily Covid-19 death toll passes 1,000
