On the morning of 27th March 2019, India was in a state of deep unrest. When PM Narendra Modi declared that he was going to address the nation between 11:45 am and 12:00 pm with an important announcement, every citizen of the country loaded bags full of cash and headed straight for the bank. *wink*
Until the announcement was finally made, speculations were rife that the nation was going to be hit by another wave of demonetisation.
As Chowkidar Narendra Modi was half an hour late to make his announcement, Twitter expectedly exploded with memes in anticipation of the PM's big reveal.
However, PM Narendra Modi's address went on to reveal that India shot down a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite, which was a pre-determined target. He further said that the country has become a “space superpower” with the successful testing of an anti-satellite weapon. Also, we are only the fourth nation after the US, Russia and China to become a part of the elite space club.
"A short while ago, India has shot down an LEO satellite by an anti-satellite missile. It was conducted under Mission Shakti, which was completed in three minutes," PM Modi said in a special address. Well, three cheers for India! Despite the enthralling announcement (and we're obviously proud), Twitter didn't hold back on its Grade A meme game.
It's been one adventurous day, hasn't it? Jokes aside, now that India stands tall as a space power, we couldn't be more proud.
