They say laughter is the best medicine - and as Indians find themselves staying home during a 21-day nationwide lockdown to contain the spread of the highly infectious coronavirus, many turn to social media to find some levity in the situation. The stress of the lockdown and coronavirus worries seem to have brought out the creative side of many on social media. Going by the memes and funny posts that are flooding Twitter during this time, it is evident that meme-makers will not be deterred by a global pandemic.
If you find yourself quarantined at home and stressed out, take a look at these lockdown memes and smile:
Comedian Sunil Grover was among those who looked at the lighter side when he took to Instagram on Sunday to share a photo of a man out grocery shopping during the lockdown - wearing an important placard on his back.
"Ha ha creativity! Inko inaam main 10 kg aata free milna chahiye!" he wrote while sharing the photo - a screenshot from a TikTok video that had gone viral earlier.
Grocery shopping memes, in fact, are thriving on Twitter. With people around the world avoiding stepping out, buying essentials has become something of an adventure sport, according to many on social media.

Meanwhile, the post-shopping eating, coupled with little or no exercise and no access to beauty services or hairdressers, also has people worried about their appearances once the lockdown ends.
