Memes have become a new cult of the entertainment world.
Visit any social media platform and you will come across a horde of memes. No matter if it’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Reddit, you will find memes for all situations apparently. Amongst this, Indian memes too are gaining a lot of popularity.
All because of the desi humour embedded deep in them.
So, why are Indian memes becoming so popular?
The memes that originate from India contain things that are trending the most in Indian region but even then, people across the globe are able to relate to it. This happens because Indian entertainment industry is equally popular overseas. All the movies, series, regional events and even politics gets equally discussed and enjoyed by the Indian audience as well as internet users around the world.
The tsunami of desi memes
Funny Indian memes contain a unique kind of humour which all the other memes lack. It has the typical Indian touch that explores a new genre of humour altogether. Most people love such memes which they can relate to, and memes from India offer just about that.
The new digital phenomenon
You might think that it’s a source of entertainment but memes have taken a whole different road. It has become a means to reflect the general mind-set of people in the most brutally honest way. For example, the kind of memes that were generated during the BJP election campaigns was something that took the world by a storm.
No one was spared and everyone could instantly understand the hidden pun in the meme. It was all about revealing the agenda of a political party behind a puny meme, ‘Abki bar Modi sarkar’. I mean who would have thought that memes could be used for a hidden campaign, right?
The real political memes of India
On the other hand, there are millions of dark memes across the internet which very easily portrays a harsh truth. Take any meme related to Aditya Yoginath- the C.M of Uttar Pradesh, you will find that it explains all the serious issues that the state is facing because of his ruling, but it will be made in such a way that people understand the hidden meaning but can’t react forcefully.
That’s the beauty of this new digital entertainment tool. Memes can be used anywhere. You can use it to troll somebody or bring out a problem that every working professional faces, choice is yours.
Memes catch attention
When you scroll through your Facebook profile and come across a meme that explains the lack of job for engineers, you know that it’s the reality. That’s exactly the reason why it catches your attention in an instant.
Bollywood memes have also helped actors and actresses with their movie promotion. And everyone knows the importance of bollywood in the Indian entertainment industry.
All in all, memes have become an integral part of entertainment. And a major part of it is being contributed by India because of the ample amount of content that is available here.
I am pretty sure memes will soon take over all kinds of entertainment, because there’s nothing better than a meme which makes you giggle, or is there?
