Being confined indoors with your family is not as easy as it may sound. Usually, everyone in the household has their own set routine.
While remaining busy during the day, the family members spend time together in the evening.
However, the lockdown has disturbed this balance. Now, family members are constantly in each other’s faces throughout the day.
As much as we love spending time with family, spending too much time together can have the opposite effect.
This meme perfectly captures this essence. It features a still from the film, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum (2001) with the dialogue, “Yeh puri family hi pagal hai.”
Undoubtedly, many of us will be feeling this way as we are stuck indoors with our families.

During the coronavirus pandemic, many people have been wearing masks to protect themselves.
IRCTC has put a spin on the famous dialogue “Mere pass maa hai” from the 1975 film Deewar starring Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor.
This dialogue has been used for countless memes and continues to make many people laugh.
In the iconic scene, Vijay (Amitabh) asks Ravi (Shashi), “Aaj mere paas property hair, bank balance hair, bangla hai, gaadi hai … kya hai tumhare pass?
Ravi (Shashi) replies with the emotionally hard-hitting line, “Mere pass maa hai.”
In this instance, IRCTC changed the dialogue too, “Mere pass MA-sk hai!!”
As well as being funny, this meme is also informative as it raises awareness for the need for protection.
Oversee Virus without a Passport
