Desi Twitter explodes with memes of Dhoni, Indian parents after PUBG ban
Amid the rising Sino-India border tensions, the Government Wednesday banned 118 more Chinese apps after junking 59 apps in the first round. The second ban includes the gaming app PUBG (Player Unknown’s Battleground), a highly popular battle royale game among the Indian youth. Within an hour of the ban intimated by the IT ministry, desi Twitter exploded with hilarious memes. Some expressed sadness over the ban, while others poked fun at the happiness of Indian parents who often considered the addictive game to be a ‘distraction’ for their young, school-going children. This meme hilariously summed up how elated Indian parents would have been after the announcement of the ban.
Another meme showed a still of Amrish Puri and Farida Jalal with a subtitle that read, ‘ Aakhir woh din aa hi gaya (finally, that day has arrived)’, with the caption, ‘Indian parents be like…’.
There were plenty of MS Dhoni memes too. The former International cricketer spent most of his time in lockdown, playing games like PUBG, which was revealed by his wife Sakshi Dhoni during an Instagram Live. ‘PUBG retired before Dhoni could retire from PUBG,’ wrote a Twitterati.
