Twitter LOLs Over Tripura CM’s Claim Of Existence Of Internet During Mahabharata Era

Hilarious Twitter Reaction Over Tripura's CM Controversial Claim Of Internet During Mahabharata

(Last Updated On: April 20, 2018)

India is a strange land. The happenings here continue to marvel, sadden, anger, smile and even make us shake our head in total dismay- sometimes all of these at the same time. The latest incidence that will leave you with such mixed feelings is honourable Tripura’s newly-elected Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb’s statement on the internet during Mahabharata era.

Deb enthusiastically claimed in a public event recently that the internet and satellite technology existed during the time of Mahabharata. Wait, what?!

Yes, read that again and take a pause to absorb it in. The 46-year-old BJP minister supported his claim of the ‘existence of internet during Mahabharata days’ with the evidence in the form of a particular episode in the Mahabharata, wherein Sanjay narrates the war between the Pandavas and the Kauravas to the blind king Dhritarashtra.

“This is the country where the episodes of the Mahabharata war were narrated to Dhritarashtra by Sanjay” Times Of India quoted Deb as saying. “This means technology was there, the internet was there, satellite was there.”

As obvious and very much expected, Deb’s declaration of the existence of internet during Mahabharata era was quickly followed by jabs and memes on Twitter. A quick look here will definitely leave you amused or may be sickening sad.
