Memes on soaring onion prices rise on social media
New Delhi: As the exorbitant prices of onions bring tears to the eyes of consumers, social media has been abuzz with memes highlighting the reactions of common people to the situation.
Dialogues from Bollywood movies often contribute to the script of the memes. The memes linked to onions are no exception.
“Jab samay aaega to sabse bada chhalaang hum hi maarenge,” read the text of a meme that has one big onion as the image, referring to what Anand Kumar (played by actor Hrithik Roshan) told his students in the movie “Super 30”.
The meme meant that onions would make the biggest jump in prices when the time comes, surpassing the surge in prices of gold and petrol.
“When you own a godown full of onions.#OnionPrice,” said the caption of another meme that showed a child walking with pride.
Another meme shows a man showcasing his stock of onions before making a marriage proposal to his girlfriend.
However, as Afghanistan has started supplying the commodity, the price of the commodity is expected to come down in a few days.
