As Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced nationwide lockdown until April 14, people who are confined to their homes have flooded social media with various challenges. In the same wave, Spiritual leader and Art of Living Founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar came up with a cooking challenge for men under the hashtag, #LetMenCook followed by #WomenOnStrike for a day, so that the females who are overburdened with household chores can get a breather. First introduced on April 3, Sri Sri even posted a video of himself, cooking on April 6. Hundreds of men have taken part in the trend and have posted images and videos of doing dishes andcooking in the kitchen with the caption, “challenge accepted”.
How about #WomenOnStrike on Monday? #LetMenCook— Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (@SriSri) April 3, 2020
Women can guide others in the house, including children to cook. In some cases, it might be tougher to teach than to cook yourself but it's worth the challenge.#LockdownAdventures

Took up the challenge set by @SriSri and made Gluten-Free Spinach Pasta with Bell Peppers, Paneer, Zucchini, Carrots, Italian Herbs & a sprinkling of Cheese. Also added Black Pepper & Tumeric to boost immunity so it's not all pure indulgence. #letmencook #fitmencook #mencancook pic.twitter.com/BNZWkLGQuc— Sahil Jagtiani (@sahiljagtiani) April 6, 2020
