Earlier yesterday, the newspaper had a picture of a Yuva Sena member tying rakhi to a policeman, which should be troubling for a variety of reasons. But that’s not why we are here today. We are here because someone posted the picture online.
Today’s newspaper has this pic of a yuva sena member tying rakhi to a policeman which is well.., hmm… but what really elevates it to meme level is the guy in the lockup looking on. pic.twitter.com/WVLx0fXMQD— Vikram Hegde (@vikramhegde) August 23, 2021
Now, the picture also has a guy in the lockup just staring at the duo, which convinced Twitter that the photo was ripe for being a meme.
