Several parts of the country are reeling under cold wave conditions for the past month. On Monday, people in Delhi and its adjoining areas woke up to a chilly morning with the minimum temperature in the national capital dropping to 1.4 degrees Celsius. And it seems there is no relief from the winter chill anytime soon. While people are facing a lot of problems due to severe cold and dense fog, there are two things that are keeping them warm-the humble chai and memes.
Right now, social media is on overrun with tweets and posts of people complaining about spine-chilling weather. Some creative people are also keeping themselves entertained by sharing hilarious jokes and memes and relishing empathy in the winter gloom enveloping us.
One such Twitter thread poking fun at names of Indian cities reeling under the cold spell is going viral, amusing people. A Twitter user, who goes by the name @sagarcasm, cleverly tweaked the names of the cities in accordance with how cold they are.
He wrote, ''How cold is it? A thread. It's so cold in Bengal that Kolkata is now called Coldkata.'' In the subsequent tweets, Dehradun was named as 'Kohradun', Kanpur as 'Kaanp-pur', Indore as 'Stay Indoor', Gujarat's Baroda as 'Barfoda', Chandigarh as 'Thandigarh', Shillong as 'Chillong' and so on.
