We had asked you, dear readers, to tell us how you're spending time indoors.
Here, Saurabh Raikar from Thane, Mumbai shows us how he turned his home into a mini studio.

Remember how two years ago, the mannequin challenge had taken over the Internet?

From working professionals to college students, everyone took a chance at it and challenged others to try it.

With most families staying and working indoors, Thane-based Saurabh Raikar was also inspired to do the mannequin challenge, but with a message.

The video features his parents -- Sandeep and Sneha Raikar -- and was shot in less than 30 minutes.

What's interesting is how the Raikars have tried to include different ways to keep yourselves busy at home.

"I had watched many mannequin challenges on social media and thought of doing it someday. Also, I have always loved one shot scenes where the camera moves to multiple places and angles; the best example being the song 'Gallan Goodiyan' (from the film Dil Dhadakne Do). So I tried to mix both these favourite things to make a trendy challenge which can be done by 3 or more people inside their homes while we fight the virus together by staying indoors."

Do watch the fun video below!
