Mumbai Power Cut: Social media erupts with memes and jokes as the city faces outage due to grid failure

Things are expected to return to normalcy soon after the Mumbai Power Cut. Until then, humour and complaining are the only recourse Mumbaikars appear to have.

Mumbai suffered a power out on Monday after a failure in the power grid that supplies electricity to the city. Local train services suffered and so did other services in the city. However, social media, as is to be expected, came alive with memes and jokes regarding the power cut. Every unusual event is an opportunity for memes and the Mumbai power cut was no different.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who often finds himself as the butt of jokes, once again featured prominently in the jokes that were cracked about the Mumbai power cut. “Mumbai, think twice about defeating Delhi Capitals next time (in the IPL),” said one user.

There were non-political jokes as well.

Then there were those who mocked Mumbaikars reaction to the Coronavirus pandemic and the power cut.

Some mocked the panic people would have felt regarding the state of the charge on their smartphone batteries.

Jokes were cracked on the trouble people working from homes would be facing as well.

Things are expected to return to normalcy soon after the Mumbai Power Cut. Until then, humour and complaining are the only recourse Mumbaikars appear to have. While power cuts are highly unusual for a city like Mumbai, there is a first time for everything one guesses. Moreover, 2020 has been that kind of a year so far.
