It's the New Year's Eve 2020! One of the most enthusiastic celebrations marked across the globe. But amid the scare of new COVID-19 strain, the enthusiasm is a little lower this year around. A lot of people will be ringing in their celebrations at home, as in parts of India there is a night curfew so that people do not step out and gather together. Mumbai Police has given a fair warning about celebrating the New Year's Eve safely. But what's important is they highlight consent and it is being appreciated online. The Mumbai police Twitter is known for their quirky replies to people's doubts and their latest one on consent being basic, primary and non-negotiable is very apt.

A slew of restrictions have been imposed on New Year celebrations amid the pandemic. This morning, the Mumbai Police Twitter account shared a tweet on safely celebrating the New Year's Eve 2020. It showed a WhatsApp chat screen with two people conversing about the plan for tonight. "Single and ready to mingle but ONLINE," they captioned it. But one user decided to trick them with a question. A user asked, "What if I reach her place by 11pm and stay there overnight?" The account quoted this tweet and replied highlighting the importance of consent. They replied, "We hope you have taken her consent else we have an alternate accommodation for the night in mind for you!" That to the point and very accurate reply has impressed the netizens once again. Mumbai Police Makes Video of Their Best Tweets Celebrating Their 5 Years of Twitter and It's Quiet Meme-orable!
