Some memes were also in reference to Delhi's pollution problem and the city's frequent earthquake tremors. A user shared a meme which read, "Running inside because of earthquake, running outside because of earthquake."

Another user shared a meme in which a person stands in the middle of two people shaking hands, one named pollution and the other earthquake, with the caption "Delhites rightnow."
