Twitterati go berserk as superheroes turn Indian

Our country is surely driven by our ‘bade buzurgs,’ which was proven by a trendy topic at twitter on Monday, #IfSuperheroesWereIndians. Given the hash-tag, a lot of hilarious tweets came pouring in, in no time. But I feel comedy is a serious business these days. And in India, where we are bound by family laws forever, such tweets sounded more than just funny.

Our country is surely driven by our ‘bade buzurgs’ (elders in the family) which was proven by a trending topic at Twitter on Monday, #IfSuperheroesWereIndians. Given the hash-tag, a lot of hilarious tweets came pouring in, that too in no time. But I feel comedy is serious business these days. And in India, where we are bound by family laws forever, such tweets sounded more than just funny.

No doubt, we Indian kids are dependent on our parents for nearly twenty-five long years (or more) for our necessities- a home, our education, even money. Even if we become superheroes tomorrow, we would be under constant scrutiny of not only our parents, but our neighbours, our relatives as well as the entire society!

Here are some hilarious but thought-provoking tweets challenging our mindset.

What if you ask your parents if you wished to become a superhero?

Not to forget the constant reminder of others’ kids. I still wonder who this ‘Sharmaji’ is. Maybe he could adopt me as well.

And our female superheroes be like

Cheers to our loving mothers

Well, never forget our neighbours.

And here we caught some love birds too.

And this sums up the destiny of our fully domesticated superhero.
