On day 2 of the state-wide lockdown, Kerala once again looked highly reluctant to follow the government guidelines as several people ventured out on their private vehicles on Tuesday, many of them for no better reason than to get a glimpse of the lockdown.

Punitive measures that would make a restless traveller curse the moment he decided to jump out of his house are under serious consideration. Here are some picture taken from various towns by our photographers:
