The steep hike in the price of onions has not only affected the aam aadmi in India but also our Bollywood celebrities. The celebs have made the social networking site Twitter wet with their onion tears by posting ironical and humorous comments.
Filmmaker Farah Khan, who is looking forward for her next release Tees Maar Khan later this week, tweeted expressing her astonishment, “Unbelievable!! onions are 100 bucks a Kg!"
(Yeah!! Christmas party for all in B-town will become an expensive affair now.)
Veteran Anupam Kher tweeted expressing the irony of the fact, “Father called from Delhi, 'Your mother has become smarter.' 'How come you praising her Dad?' 'She asked me to buy her ONIONS instead of GOLD.':)"
(Bingo! There is a point to be noted here. It is better to chuck buying golds and start thinking of treasuring onions.)
Indian celebrity writer Chetan Bhagat tweeted, “Onions now cost more than petrol. Take that OPEC."
(So does that make onion oils an alternative for petrol?)
Pritish Nandy, an Indian poet, journalist and a television personality, contributes to all the remarks by sarcastically tweeting, “Sharad Pawar seems on the side of the butchers. Vegetarianism is simply becoming unaffordable in the land of the Mahatma. Next step. Cheap Chinese meat will be imported. The only question: Will you ever know what you are eating?"
(Do we actually know it now?)
He added, "With onions touching Rs 100 a kig and garlic Rs 400, kissing in Mumbai becomes an easier, friendlier, nicer experience."
(Lol! Very well said Mr. Nandy)
