UDALGURI, May 7 - Imagine having a passport photo with a face mask on! An incident of this kind actually took place in Udalguri town a few days ago.
On the first day of relaxation of the lockdown on May 4, Sanjiv Saha, the owner of Studio Flashlight in Udalguri, encountered two villagers wearing face masks who entered his photo studio wanting to get their passport-size photos clicked for some official purpose.
When Saha asked them to get their masks off from their faces in order to click the photos, the villagers simply refused to remove the masks, giving reference to the strict government guidelines to put on face masks without which they could be penalised.
It took some time for the studio owner to inform the duo about the COVID-19 pandemic and how it spreads.
After the duo were convinced, they removed their masks and got their photos clicked.
