Rahul Gandhi is touring Germany. No, he is not being Jason Bourne on top of a corporate building, he is apparently meeting intellectuals and discussing the employment status of ISIS terrorists. Earlier today, Indian people were being furious over Rahul Gandhi for equating ISIS terrorists to ‘poor unemployed youth’ and naturally so. Isn’t ‘unemployment’ an exclusive excuse saved only for Kashmiri stone-pelters? Anyway, Indians should really be grateful that the Congress prince did not mistake the German events for an election rally and announce some ‘XYZ Gandhi Rozgar Yojna’ for ISIS terrorists, or demanded an ISIS reservation quota.
But in their haste to react, Indian social media users had grossly underestimated Rahul Gandhi. He has such natural charm that we Indians cannot stay mad at him for long. Before the day was done, the prince was back in news. The Congress official handle on Twitter shared some images of Rahul Gandhi where he is standing clueless near a wall and giving poses just like a kid on his first day at school, in an apparent attempt to provide a glimpse of this ‘multifaceted’ personality.

As soon as the images were shared, the floodgates opened on social media.

As he was standing near a wall full of graffiti, photoshop was inevitable.

However, some thoughtful Twitter users considered it a realistic representation of the Party’s predicament as of now.

As if the first Tweet did not provide enough meme material for a month, the official Congress handle Tweeted some more images of Rahul Gandhi and lightbulbs (not joking) and even parody accounts started to have a field day.

Indians should be thankful for Rahul Gandhi. Looks like its only BJP supporters who realise his actual potential and call him their ‘star pracharak’. He has such unique talent to make Indians laugh in most grim situations. Just when we thought we had enough of Shikanji business ideas and BHEL mobile phones, He has given us another opportunity to laugh off some stress from our busy lives.
