Memes, as per an article on Medium, have proven to be effective avenues of communication and agents of social change at a macro level. It is also a known fact that every new happening in any corner around the world has proven to be the fodder of memes, which would eventually get made and go viral on the internet. The week that went by is no different. The past week saw Myntra changing its logos because its design upset a handful of activists, meme-worthy developments on the popular television show, Sasural Simar Ka, and the set of memes triggered by a Tweet through which Murali Vijay was seen congratulating Dinesh Kartik for his most recent victory. A handful of those memes that were made by the netizens can be found below.
After allegations by a women's rights activist that the logo of the popular online shopping destination, Myntra, bore resemblance to the shape of bare-bodied lady, the brand was forced to change their graphic. While the issue may have been taken care almost instantly, somewhere in a far distant corner of the internet, the meme-makers saw it as an opportunity of showing off their creativity. Some of those memes can be found below.
In probably what will be considered to be one of the most unusual and bizarre sequences in the history of Indian television, a senior character on one of India's most popular television shows, Sasural Simar Ka, was seen choking her on-screen family member to death. The scene, which tried to communicate that what transpired was merely an accident, ended with the former leaving the latter unconscious on the floor. What came after that is a myriad of hilarious memes that can be found below.
