NEW DELHI: The latest entry into India's meme culture 'Gonna tell my kids' format has taken social media by storm, in which people say how they're going to trick their children into believing things that are completely untrue.
The meme, which started in the West, showed people posting hilarious memes about their plans of leading their future children to believe that some of the most significant figures in history are actually random pop icons.
The trend has been promptly picked up by meme makers in India who have flooded microblogging site Twitter with jokes about how they plan to lie and pass off some celebrity image or famous scene as the stuff of historical significance.
Most of the topics are regarding the description of an old movie or famous personality, or music band who are gradually fizzling out in terms of popularity.
Here are some of the funniest of the viral meme:
