While the power failure drove the whole country mad on Tuesday, Delhiites decided to make light of the darkness to make it easier to bear. Social networking sites Twitter and Facebook were flooded with jokes and one-liners such as, ‘Dear Rajinikanth, if you’re done charging your laptop, can we have our electricity back? Sincerely, north Indians!’ and ‘Spiderman found drunk and unconscious on Delhi pavement. Why? Because with no power, comes no responsibility!’
Many love birds were also overheard giving the ‘stuck in Metro’ excuse to their parents to spend more time with each other.
