He was in news just last week for scoring 99.6% — the highest ever marks in class 12 CBSE boards. But Sarthak Agarwal’s fame has not died down just yet. He has now inspired various memes on the internet.

A page — Sarthak Agarwal memes — on Facebook has managed to get more than 18,000 likes within a day of its creation.
The memes include popular ones that talk about how Agarwal’s percentage could actually comprise the passing marks of three individuals and that all parents now want their children to become Sarthak Agarwal when they grow up.
Crossover memes of Rajnikanth and Alok Nath have also been put up on the page.
But the creator of the page, Aditya Vijayvargiya, is now a worried man. The student of Noida’s Amity University said, “I created the page for sheer fun. It was not intended to hurt anyone. A number of people, however, have taken it as an insult and have started threatening me,” he said.
“However, I would like to clarify that I am not making fun of Sarthak. In fact I congratulate him on his achievements him. If he doesn’t like this page, I am ready to take it down,” he added.
The star of the memes, Sarthak, however, has not seen the page so far. “I don’t think there is anything wrong with it if it is done in good taste,” he said.
