Social media has great power. It can make you laugh, rouse anger, enable change and of course trigger much humour. Pulkit Sharma, who is based in Delhi and is known for his sharp reviews of accessibility features in restaurants, is exploring the power of social media with funny memes and videos. Going by the fan following, they seem to be grabbing much attention.
Pulkit says this was born from a random thought on a rather boring day and the response is quite unexpected. He is glad he went with his instinct to explore the thought.
I was just sitting bored at home one day when I decided to do something different, something that I have not tried. I knew that I wanted to make my friends and family laugh. They must also be able to connect to it. That is how I made my first meme. I got a lot of appreciation for it and decided to venture into videos. It has only been a couple of months since I started doing it. But I have been getting good responses and I am glad. – Pulkit Sharma, Accessibility critic
Pulkit does everything single-handedly – from creating the content to editing the videos and uploading them . He has some apps on his mobile to make the process an easy one. His memes are posted mostly on Twitter because in his words, the responses are “best and honest”. He is happy with the followers he has, many of whom re-tweet his memes.
