Onion price hike has turned this common cooking ingredient into almost a luxury item for many. But even after struggling under the burden of an immense rise of prices, netizens are giving quite a funny makeover to the tearful situation. Keeping up with the trend Twitter has flooded with memes which are giving a relatable feeling to its users.

Taking cues from desi culture references, memers have created some amusing memes that portrays the situation of the country. While some give a glimpse of how dear onions have become, some videos show how common man is protecting onion like a piece of jewellery.
