  1. No one knows what will happen to Facebook in the next fifty years. But what we do know is that if Facebook manages to stay in business till 2069, then it'll have profiles of more dead people than that of living. According to academics from the University of Oxford, the number of dead people on Facebook could outnumber the living on the social network. It looks like the number of dead users on Facebook is growing at an unstoppable rate. © Reuters Back in 2012, Facebook had 30 million accounts of dead people. But now, the platform has over two billion users and an estimated 8,000 users die every single day. Based on that, it's predicted that the number of dead users could reach at least 1.4 billion or potentially as high as 4.9 billion by the end of the century. And if Facebook's growth rate keeps going down at the current rate, then it'll literally become a digital graveyard at one point with just the 'memorial' profiles of dead people. Seriously, it's damn scary. And yes, in case you didn't know, the platform will keep your account alive in a digital form once you die. It'll preserve your online thoughts, memories, relationships, and more. The company recently added a bunch of features to manage the accounts of dead people too.
  2. With $131 billion tinkering in his bank account, world's richest man Jeff Bezos can literally get his hands on everything money can buy. With that kind of money, not only does one enjoy immense luxury but also comes to hold positions of power and prestige. Jeff Bezos is proof that when you own half the world's cash in your bank account, not only can you live the best life by spending it on awesome things, but also back crazy inventions for the world to see. Here are 10 insanely awesome things owned by Jeff Bezos which prove that he is Richie Rich come to life. 1. A museum for a house. © Entrepreneur Bezos owns a house in Washington which was once a Textiles Museum. He spent 23 million dollars to make that property his own in 2016. Reportedly, post renovations, the house will have 11 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, 5 living rooms and 2 elevators. 2. A top-of-the-class private jet. © Private Jet Fan Owning a private jet becomes a necessity when you are Jeff Bezos, and surely the man is known for travelling on a Gulfstream G-650ER, which is one of the fastest private jets in the world. 3. A clock that will work till the end of time. © Business Insider Yeah, you read that right. Keeping up with time is of utmost importance when you have an empire to run. But who wants a regular timepiece when you can own a clock which will run for 10,000 years? Bezos invested $42 million in getting the clock made, which is under construction in Texas. 4. A 10,000 square feet apartment in New York. © Business Insider Bezos is the owner of 3 linked apartments spanning over 10,000 square feet, in New York's upscale Central Park West area which cost him $17 million. 5. A 141-year-old newspaper. © NY Times One of the leading newspapers in the US, The Washington Post was bought by Jeff Bezos back in 2013.The acquisition cost him $230 million and the 141-year-old newspaper became his. 6. A commercial rocket factory. © Spacenews Touted to be Bezos' most dear passion project (after Amazon of course), his aerospace company Blue Origin is invested in making rockets for commercial use. Bezos funded the company to make space travel affordable for 'regular' customers. 7. A robo-dog. © Twitter Bezos showed off a 'robot dog' in 2018 with a tweet. Named Spot Mini, the robo-dog has been reportedly created by Boston Dynamics. It is believed that Bezos owns the dog since he called it “my dog” on Twitter. 8. A house in Hollywood. © Variety Known to be one of the most famous neighbourhoods in Hollywood, Bezos owns a Spanish style mansion in Beverly Hills in California. A Business Insider report claimed that the 7 bedroom, 7 bathroom mansion has “a greenhouse, a sunken and lighted tennis court, a huge swimming pool, four fountains, and a six-car garage.” 9. A lake house in Seattle, with Bill Gates as his neighbour. © AOL Bought by Bezos in 1998, it reportedly cost him $10 million dollars. It's a 5.3-acre estate that houses two residences - a 20,600-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-bathroom space and an 8,300-square-foot, five bedroom, four-bathroom home. 10. An expansive Amazon campus in Seattle. © USA Today Bezos' Amazon Seattle campus spreads over four downtown blocks and cost him $4 billion. Reportedly, one of the structures called The Spheres has a tropical forest replicated within it.
  3. All social media platforms are designed for the living, so that we can connect and interact with other people online. But a platform like Facebook, which has been around for decades, has a lot of users who're no longer alive. So the social media giant rolled out some features like the ability to assign a legacy contact to be charge of one's account after they die. Now, Facebook has announced that it's rolling out more features for dead people and how these legacy contacts have more control over the deceased person's account. It's a really nice gesture, and we're glad that Facebook is offering these new features. However, we would have loved to see Facebook fixing its platform for the living first. You know, the privacy issues that are giving nightmares and keeping us away from the platform. © Reuters Anyway, Facebook has rolled out some meaningful features, so let's check them out. First off, Facebook has added the ability to manage a new 'Tribute' section where the loved ones can remember the deceased person and pay their respects. Facebook also noted that it's addressing some pressing complaints against how a dead person's account is handled. Now, for instance, before an account is 'memorialized', Facebook will verify whether the person is actually dead. Only after a successful verification will the legacy contact be able to control the account. Also, only a friend or a family member can request to have an account memorialized. Lastly, the company also said they will use AI tools to prevent sending birthday reminders and friend recommendations for deceased users. Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg said, “We know the loss of a friend or family member can be devastating - and we want Facebook to be a place where people can support each other while honouring the memory of their loved ones.” © Facebook Yeah, all these features, as we said, are really useful for the legacy contact, but we'd rather have the company focusing on fixing privacy issues for the living. Really, we all have some serious doubts on Facebook and how it handles our account and private information. If things keep escalating at the same rate and if people keep quitting the platform due to privacy reasons, then there will be no dead people's account or legacy contacts in the first place.
  4. Shah Rukh Khan is also known as King Khan, not only because he is a tremendously good actor and rules over the hearts of millions of film lovers, but also because he is a true gentleman. Fans love him and swear by his words of wisdom. They take his words to heart and often treat him as a mentor. © YouTube That should not come as a shock because SRK is a great orator with a capability of stirring people's hearts with mere words and leaving a great impact on their minds. SRK might have just used this superpower for a great cause and the result is heartwarming. Recently, as part of the Meer Foundation initiative, Shah Rukh met acid attack survivors before their corrective surgeries, however, that was not all. While interacting with these strong women (many of whom were also his fans), he also shared some personal insights on life and facing it head-on, that is absolutely inspiring! SRK told the women to stay strong and live with their heads held high. He further told them that as long as they believed that they wanted to make something of themselves in life, the rest will fall in place. © Twitter He also underlined the importance of working for ourselves and being independent and said, “It's important for each one of us to make sure that we work for ourselves. We should do our own work without depending on another individual. Even if it's a small job, we should be fending for ourselves. And at the end of the day, we must be independent.” © YouTube The video from this meeting has since been widely circulated on social media and it's like a breath of fresh air to see these wonderful women smiling and giggling post their interaction with SRK. © YouTube Perhaps he doesn't know it, but we are sure that through this interaction SRK has touched many lives, and given many other survivors hope for the future. Shah Rukh Khan started the Meer foundation in 2017 and it focuses on improving the lives of acid-attack survivors.
  5. The entire Jonas clan is partying in Miami right now while we are sitting at our desks, dreaming of a vacation. But, don't worry, they all decided to just go on a social media spree to show everyone how much fun they're having dancing and chilling on a yacht, so that maybe we can all live vicariously through them. Really nice of them, right? (Please detect the sarcasm) View this post on Instagram When the crew looks this good ððð½â¤ï¸ A post shared by Priyanka Chopra Jonas (@priyankachopra) on Mar 25, 2019 at 4:41pm PDT But, don't worry, among the various pictures and videos, we got a desi connection, no, not Priyanka Chopra. Nick Jonas posted a video of them jamming to the Jonas Brothers' latest song 'Sucker' with Priyanka Chopra, Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas, and Sophie Turner. Pretty normal to celebrate their success, but the best part came towards the end of the video. Sucker vibes in Miami. pic.twitter.com/uTTARhpudg — Nick Jonas (@nickjonas) March 25, 2019 Sound familiar? I honestly didn't even know what song it was at first, but I just knew it was a Bollywood song. Well, the song is 'Mera Wala Dance' from the movie, 'Simmba' and I'm pretty sure it was Priyanka playing the music, or maybe, just maybe, he's turned all the Jonas' into Bollywood fanboys. While only the beginning of the song was in the video, Desi people obviously caught on to it and are so here for it.

  6. From patriarchal society to intersectional feminism, we are moving in the right direction. We have no right to treat anyone differently based on their gender. Women are as good as men, if not better. From homemakers to CEOs, they are proving their mettle in every field. Social causes like feminism have urged women to come out of their shell. Feminism isn't about what a woman 'should' do, it's about what a woman 'wants' to do. While some choose to stay at the house and make it a home, others choose to sit in a cabin and lead their company. And some, some choose to do both! Choice! That's what they should have. That is what everyone should have. These days, Indian women are making a choice to have a nuclear family. They're preferring to stay away from in-laws. While it must not be easy for the older generation to digest, let's see how it makes sense because of these two major reasons: · Interference The younger generation doesn't have any specific rules about 'it's a man's job'and 'it's a woman's job.' They live life in their own comforting way and do things at their own convenience and pace. The older generation, however, doesn't understand this concept. Most men don't work in the kitchen before marriage. Post marriage, when a mom sees her son making dinner after coming from the office, she is bound to assume that his wife is making him do this. It won't cross her mind that maybe her son is happily doing it. Modern men have come out of gender-specific roles. They are more than okay with being a helping hand in every aspect of the marriage. But the older generation is not always too comfortable with it. They just assume that since their son had to change his lifestyle, he might not be happy with how things are. So they have a 'talk' with the wife which leads to unnecessary quarrels. Parents (both the sides) shouldn't interfere in a marriage unless they are asked. It's about time they stop 'assuming' things just because their children have changed their lifestyle. · Freedom When a woman is at her home, she can sleep anytime, wake up any time, laze around all day, and do just nothing. The same thing continues (if) she moves in with her boyfriend. We, men, don't really care about any such stuff as long as both the partners are happy. But when after the marriage if the in-laws come to live with the couple, that freedom goes. No matter how cool the in-laws are, some discomfort and the pressure to 'behave' would always be there. Modern women don't understand sacrificing their freedom. And they aren't wrong. So they prefer to stay away. I am sure even a man won't be completely comfortable living with his in-laws. After marriage, these two things concern women the most. I am not blaming the older generation here. Because that is how they have seen the world. They were brought up in a gender-specific society. A society where each gender had to live in a certain way. But times are changing now. Gender doesn't really have a place is the modern relationship. It's all about comfort, compatibility, and love. And that is how it should be!
  7. We do not live in the same city and yet manage to spend more time together than couples living in the same zip code. We end up flying almost every weekend to see each other, either in Mumbai or Delhi. All other times, we meet directly at the holiday destination (not in the same city to travel together for a holiday, we just land up there separately). In our two-and-a-half-year-old relationship, we would have taken a combined total of at least 150 flights, visited 8 countries and many cities in India just to spend time with each other- Gaurang (c)Instagram While every couple strives the hardest to make a relationship work, there are a few who go an extra mile to make sure their relationship is nothing short of extraordinary. And the couples who usually do that have a tough situation at hand and they certainly work towards the odds, to perceive it as nothing less than spectacular. For us, every relationship does circumvent its way around to make it spectacular. If you've made it long enough and are true to each other, then why shouldn't you brag about it? I mean that, in the most non-cynical banter ever. Today, relationships are moulded out of uncertainty, where a 'right swipe' takes you far away from basic reality of a relationship which should ideally be working on strong will and a lot of determination. And if there are couples making it work through the thick and thin of everything, without using distractions as a tool to temporarily sabotage an equation, then they're definitely worth a mention. (c)Instagram Meet one such couple, who has realised the importance of sticking together, even though they have miles between them, in a generation that thinks working extra-hard on a dynamic is rather redundant and superfluous, with frivolity ruling the roost, of every heart, today. Here's introducing Gaurang and Saachi, who defy that theory fairly often. The two met through a common friend, back in 2011, when they were still in college and when Blackberry phones were the endgame for a lot of couples back then. The first interaction was, of course, exchanging BBM pins. We actually lived through the "BBM age" in 2011. We used to chat for 7-8 hours every day till it got to a point where we risked finger tendonitis. - Gaurang (c)Instagram Favourite Memory So Far Both of them have been bitten by the travel bug and have made their favourite memories together from their indulgences in different places. The first time Saachi proclaimed her feelings for Gaurang was in Goa and when they were spending time together. Right when the sun came out, she looked at Gaurang and asked him if he wanted to go out. Little did Gaurang realise she's asking him out and in his innocent spree, he agreed to go outside to soak up some sun and enjoy some breakfast. (c)Instagram From thereon, their memories were filtered to either ticket cancellations and re-bookings or checking out a new place together or even making travel plans for their next birthdays, Valentine's Day and various relationships milestones. Took me to Prague for my birthday. Flew in to Mumbai to surprise me on Valentine's day, Jodhpur for our 2 years and now we're planning to bring in our birthdays at Scotland and USA respectively, this year, because we need new memories!- Saachi (c)Instagram This Is How You Tackle Distance Both the 'wanderers' have been together for a long while now and have opted through various things in life to stay together. By that I mean, Saachi and Gaurang realised that being physically together in one place, even though their relationship doesn't allow it, is a bare essential and they've done everything in their power to overcome the distance they go through, everyday. Couples living away from each other, making each day count, and not letting suppositions rule their relationship with the obscure distance they have to deal with, are an inspiration in today's day and age and we're glad we can count on them flawlessly to teach us how to strive towards keeping something so fragile, alive. (c)Instagram Gaurang and Saachi going through months of not seeing each other is not just commendable, it's the strongest aspect that builds the fundamentals of their relationship. From dealing with insecurities to earning each other's trust over time, while away from each other, is the strongest reinforcement of belief and love. And believe it or not, their long-distance relationship works from one suitcase to another. They both love travelling and have made that an eventuality in keeping their love alive. (c)Instagram When they decided to date, it was on a trip to Goa they'd taken with a few friends and now, every time they establish a new milestone in their relationship, it's overlooking a new city skyline, amidst local food and an adequate yet brand new start to a very old equation. We decided to date each other on a trip with friends to Goa. Our first date was on the beach drinking wine - Saachi Since then, instead of visiting each other in the city they both reside, they book tickets and explore new cities and spend time together. It helps them regain the moments they've lost in time and travel through different places, making indispensible memories their unbreakable timeline for the future. It was Gaurang's idea initially to make their life a lot more convenient since Saachi had a job that made her shift her base from time to time. The couple first travelled to Jodhpur to spend some quality time together and then made it mandatory to pick a city of their choice to meet at, whenever time allowed them to. Honestly, if long distance relationships worked this way, distance would just be a meagre resolve, as couples would pay more heed to planning the next trip and figuring out an active itinerary rather than brood over how far they are from one another. (c)Instagram She's a consultant and travels every week, so I end up living that lifestyle vicariously. We've met each other at Prague, Portugal, Budapest, Finland, Thailand, Vietnam, USA and Dubai , as far as I can remember - Gaurang Long distance relationships should be listed under survivor tools, because you're diligently doing anything to keep them intact, in order to survive a relationship crash. It's tough for sure but there are many things you learn with this association such as patience, faith, and trust. Gaurang and Saachi have been stuck with a conundrum of following through with long distance and they've been doing a mighty good job of it so far, by travelling away their woes. (c)Instagram There is never a decree of 'heartbreak' between these two, when they leave each other's company to pursue their lives in different cities. Because they know they've tackled the severest relationship downfall and have made it alive, with a lot of sparkle and fun, intact. They have mastered the art of making holiday plans, seeing each other whenever the need arises and saving money diligently to do so successfully, until the day they're married! Honestly, I have been blessed with more than I deserve. - Gaurang (c)Instagram At the end of the day, relationships that are fundamentally stable, can withstand any test they're put through, even the test of time. To end this beautiful story, I can't stress enough on how some couples have to part temporarily on a good note and carry forth their association in different places. I personally admire couples who have immense faith in each other to work through the distance and make every day a reason to point at the map and say 'Let's make this work and have fun while doing so'.
  8. I have a question for everyone – The world will be such a better place if there was no hate and everyone just co-existed peacefully. No, I don't want to sound preachy, I'm just stating facts. And, to prove that point even further, here's a Facebook post by Sania Ahmad Hasan talking about how people being respectful and living in harmony is important. She starts off by saying she lives in Jamia Nagar in New Delhi, a place where a good percentage of the population is Muslim. She wrote, “I live in the predominantly Muslim area of Jamia Nagar in Delhi. There are a few Hindu families that live near my house though.” As everyone knows, Navratras just ended and how important it is to a lot of people. Her post further said, “In an area of mosques every few kilometres, there is a small temple for these families here. Nowadays, because of Navratras, the temple plays bhajans all day.” She went on to talk about the respectful and nice gesture from all the people there, that might be small, but means so much more. She said, “However, during each of the azaans, they pause the bhajans. On the other side, the Muslim meat shops near their houses put up a black curtain and sell their wares discreetly from behind it during these 9 nights, in respect of their fast and sentiments.” The last line, the conclusion and the proof of my first point – “The beauty of peaceful co-existence! Sigh!” It's a small story but every tiny thing matters and these gestures probably meant a lot to all the Muslim and Hindu people living in the area. The post has so many people appreciating the kind actions of people, and even asking more stories like this, so people can understand the importance of co-existence. Spread humanity! Yes. It's all about respect.
  9. John Lennon- the man whose songs and ideologies have ruled a millennial's life at some point in time, be it through the meaningful lyrics that touched a million chords with his audience or his active pacifism and rebellion against the society, that inspired an entire generation of young men and women of his time and after. © johnlennon John Lennon continues to live on, not only through his classic compositions but also through his distinguished way with words, which have served to make many of us make sense of this world and our lives a little better. The following quotes by the legend, will not only guide your experiences in the ever mind-boggling 20s, but will also help you take on life with a pinch of salt: 1. “Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans.” The 20s of one's life is a kind of a mixed bag of goodies, you never know what tomorrow might bring your way, yet you never stop making plans. But as Lennon said, life will happen in the moments that you never get to plan in the first place. © johnlennon 2. “I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people.” If you're in your 20s, you know the constant push one faces to conform to the notion of the “ideals” present in every society, be it with regards to your career choices, relationships or even your food habits. Well, you don't have to live your life on anybody else's terms. 3. “If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create.” Very, very poignant even in today's time. No individual is spared from the scrutiny and judgement that our society has come to understand as its birthright, but regardless of how they try to label you, you gotta love yourself first for every other thing to work out. © johnlennon 4. “We live in a world where we have to hide to make love, while violence is practised in broad daylight.” We need not say much on this one. We have been witness to numerous incidents that follow this statement to the T in India, yet the message lies in the fact that we must not participate or encourage violence in any of its forms. Make love, not war remember? 5. “Trying to please everybody is impossible – if you did that, you'd end up in the middle with nobody liking you. You've just got to make the decision about what you think is your best, and do it.” Another one, not even one of us can deny having given in to at some point in time. But sooner or later, we come to realise the worthlessness of it all. We can't please everyone, so it's better we do more of what pleases us (without hurting/offending anyone, of course). © johnlennon 6. “There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.” Remember these words by heart. Over the next couple of years, you'll find yourself in situations that don't make sense to you at all, and you will want to scream “why is this happening to me?”. That is when you remember this quote and keep pushing through it all. 7. “A mistake is only an error, it becomes a mistake when you fail to correct it.” Well, our 20s is THE time when we make the most stupid, most hilarious and at times, the most tragic mistakes of our lives, but you know what, we can decide whether to learn from it and correct ourselves, or let it decide who we are as a person. © johnlennon 8. “Produce your own dream. If you want to save Peru, go save Peru. It's quite possible to do anything, but not if you put it on the leaders and the parking meters. Don't expect Carter or Reagan or John Lennon or Yoko Ono or Bob Dylan or Jesus Christ to come and do it for you. You have to do it yourself.” Well, if it's that degree you're after, or that dream job you've been itching to apply for, just go and do it. Don't wait for that internship or your exams to guide your fate. You do you, and live that dream! 9. “Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.” Oh yeah! All those mass bunks, parties and vacays with friends is worth it all. This one will help keep the guilt at bay. © johnlennon 10. “When you do something beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun, every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.” Well, if the man means anything to you, take his word for it. Even the Gita approves of this ideology. Keep doing good even when no one's watching. That's where all the satisfaction lies. 11. “Being honest may not get you a lot of friends but it'll always get you the right ones.” These words are pure gold and be sure you have them by heart, 'cause in the years to come, this will hold true for you on a LOT of occasions. © johnlennon 12. “What we've got to do is keep hope alive. Because without it we'll sink.” Lastly, when the 20s and the adulting that finally comes with it seems like a hopeless, uphill battle, this quote is exactly what you need to do. These are gems, right? And pretty relatable.
  10. Unlike any country in the world, the population in India is a somewhat balanced mix of different kind of people. There are some who are privileged enough and can enjoy a weekend getaway whenever they feel like it and indulge in luxuries, while there are some who make the most of it with jugaad. We Indians are the synonym of 'jugaadu', as we simply have a way to fix every problem. And recently, business tycoon Anand Mahindra took to his Twitter sharing the glimpse of this fact. He shared a video where a man can be seen under a shower. Wonder what's so great about it? Read on. The man constructed the shower using a water bottle with multiple holes at the bottom, quite similar to that of a showerhead.

These tweets do encourage their innovation, but it also puts us in a fix and makes us wonder when will the standard of living in India improve? For how long people will have to keep making jugaads?
  11. In 2009, three friends Rancho (Aamir Khan), Farhan Qureshi (R. Madhavan) and Raju Rastogi (Sharman Joshi) came into our lives and changed it for good. Thanks to them, we realised the true meaning of friendship; and figured out that following our dreams and passion may be tough indeed, but it's definitely a path worth treading on, because what waits at the end is success. © Vidhu Vinod Chopra film '3 Idiots' is one of the best movies ever and while we all loved the trio's unique friendship, there was one more character who was equally loved for the most part of the movie. Although he was a supporting character, we thoroughly loved his hilarious antics and his passion for learning. © Vidhu Vinod Chopra film We're talking about Millimetre (Rahul Kumar), a young errand boy in the Engineering college who used to run chores for students like laundry, getting groceries and even finishing their assignments. © Vidhu Vinod Chopra film If you're a '3 Idiots' fan like me, then this dialogue has to be fresh in your memory to this day, "Millimetre ab Centimetre ban chuka hai". The same dialogue that Phunsuk Wangdu's assistant says in front of Rancho's friends, when they meet him after 10 years. 9 years on, the real Millimetre is all grown up, but he looks nothing like the Centimetre we saw in the movie. Looks like we've been living a lie all these years. And the RANCHO and MILLIMETER reunites... !! Time to partyâð A post shared by Rahul Kumar (@isthis_rahul) on Oct 12, 2017 at 1:32pm PDT The kid has now turned into a handsome 22-year-old, who has several movies and television serials in his credit. And you think you own it? Naah you don't !! âð»â¤ï¸ A post shared by Rahul Kumar (@isthis_rahul) on Jul 3, 2018 at 11:40am PDT Rahul was all of 3, when he started acting in theater. Apart from '3 Idiots', he's been a part of movies like 'Omkara', 'The Blue Umbrella' and 'Zoo'. Jungle jungle âð¼â¤ï¸ð !!

Zoo housefull first day at MAMI. Thankyou guys for those sweet comments and appreciationâð A post shared by Rahul Kumar (@isthis_rahul) on Oct 15, 2017 at 11:59am PDT While Rahul may have moved on from his '3 Idiots' character, for us, he'll always be Millimetre.
  12. Most of us have suffered from the frustration of not being able to crack a math sum, and there's also no denying that not all of us have come to love the subject during school. However, while we constantly shared a love-hate relationship with mathematics as students, if there was one topic even most math-haters enjoyed or solved correctly were the Venn diagrams, that required us to figure out the logical relations between finite collections of various sets. via GIPHY Lately, these Venn diagrams have taken on a whole new meaning thanks to Twitter and these are now finally being used to form logical reasons between various situations we face as a part of our society. via GIPHY The trend gathered speed when a Twitter user posted a Venn diagram showing the commonalities between preachers, DJs, and bank robbers. The post instantly went viral and numerous other users followed suit with their own renditions inspired by the user's post, but things only got better when Indians joined in and contributed to the trend with their very own desi versions of Venn diagrams. why is this so funny to me pic.twitter.com/fUDik7CTF5 — CHELO (@chelllssseeea) August 21, 2018 We picked out 5 such desi Venn diagram memes that would be relatable for every Indian living in a metro city: 1. The Desi Love Triangle Venn the math of dating is solved! ðð#humour #venndiagram pic.twitter.com/cHvTnQzV08 — Shaadi.com (@ShaadiDotCom) August 29, 2018 This is relatable on so many levels, for so many of us that this Venn by Shaadi.com instantly hits home. 2. When Auto Is The Lifeline Of A City Life of an Autowala. pic.twitter.com/oq5hPguL0v — Godman Chikna (@Madan_Chikna) August 28, 2018 If you tell us you cannot relate to this, we'd say you're lying because that can't be true. We have all been there and done that, so there's no shame in admitting to the miseries we put a poor autowalla through. 3. We Are The Food We Eat Venn are we eating next? ðððð©pic.twitter.com/pbAXYcwTuZ — Zomato India (@ZomatoIN) August 28, 2018 This one is basically all of us, every other day, be it within the four walls of our house or the high rise office that's a second home to us. Guess people take “sharing is caring” too seriously? 4. Behen Hogi Teri Girls who are your sisters. A Venn Diagram. pic.twitter.com/wrUeoP7zvy — Pakchikpak Raja Babu (@HaramiParindey) August 26, 2018 Funny but equally painful to the guys who can relate. No matter where you look, they all resort to the dreaded B-word, bhaiya. Nahi banana behen yaar! 5. Beta Humara Bada Naam Karega Perfect Venn Diagram does exist pic.twitter.com/uUP9NFuYA0 — Vaibhav... (@lamevaibhav) August 24, 2018 Lastly, one that's painful enough to accept and yet remains a constant truth of our lives, the struggle of getting through these courses can be nothing short of torture and some of us consciously call it upon ourselves. Relatable much? We know, right.
