The COVID19 lockdown has hit pretty hard in the country. Though the lockdown is the only practical way to stop the spread, it is having its setbacks. People are struggling to stay in and can be seen breaking the quarantine and roaming about on the road.
Even though the government is taking the necessary measures to assure that nobody breaches the lockdown, netizens have found their way to keep themselves entertained during the period. On a lighter note, people have been using social media challenges to keep themselves entertained and occupied. And how are they doing so? Well, we are a country of over 1.2 billion people and therefore 1.2 billion ideas.
For starters, there has been an array of challenges that one can take up. From whipping the perfect coffee to looking ‘Oh So Pretty!’ in a Saree, the lockdown has seen a variety of challenges that we bring you today.
#sareechallenge was more of a women-centric challenge. The challenge required you to post a picture of yourself in a traditional saree and tag your friends who would have to do the same. As fas as the men were concerned, well they also found a way to participate by starting a Dhoti Challenge with similar rules.

Instagram Template Challenge
An old challenge that gained its fame again during the lockdown, Bingo was seen on almost every IG Story. In this, a user posts a questionnaire template from Instagram and answers these questions using gifs or stickers. After answering, you are required to tag your friends and pass on the challenge.
Dalgona Coffee Challenge
Dalgona coffee is originally a South Korean beverage made by whipping equal proportions of instant coffee, sugar, and hot water until it becomes creamy and then adding it to cold or hot milk. Occasionally, it is topped with coffee powder, cocoa, crumbled biscuits, or honey. The challenge quickly became the new quarantine fad and people all over the world were seen posting a picture of their version.

Whipped coffee o Dalgona coffee . . El secreto es que sean porciones iguales de los ingredientes. Ya que es café soluble compra uno bueno, que no te vaya a irritar . Yo le puse 2 cda de café, 2 cda agua caliente, 2 cda monk fruit Bate con un globo o la batidora hasta que hayan pasado cinco años y listo 🤣 . . Naaaa….bate con globo por 7min aprox pero dale tiempos de reposo de 20 s . Va a estar listo cuando tenga la consistencia horrible de la nieve de Dairy Queen, que la volteas y no se cae ….ahí mero esta listo. Sírvelo con hielos y lechita de almendra 👌🏽 . . La neta si vale la pena, esta deli ❤️ . . . . . #whippedcoffee #dalgonacoffee #ketocoffee
