Rupee's all-time low led to many witty one-liners on Twitter. We compiled the best ones for you:

Rupee is low. Can we ask Rupee's partner to take them out for shopping and lunch/dinner date to cheer it up?! Even a movie will help I'm sure.- MazelTov (@runjhunmehrotra) June 28, 2018
According to Reuters, traders said that some of the factors that came into play in rupee's decline were dollar's sharp gain overnight combined with fall in Asian currencies which caused the rupee's drop in early trade. They said that they were hopeful the central bank would step in to prevent further losses.
In May, it was the hike in petrol prices that had led to Twitter showing its funny side.
