As Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meditation pictures hit the Internet, Twitter wasted no time in turning it into a meme.
The Indian PM headed to Kedarnath for a Hindu ‘Teerth yatra‘ or religious pilgrimage. Just like Muslims undertake Hajj, the Char Dham Yatra is the Hindu equivalent of a religious pilgrimage. Worshipers go through it to emerge sin-free and enlightened.
And since Modi likes being photographed no matter where he goes, of course there were gonna be pictures. And then the internet had its way.
The Latest Meme
Like the rest of Twitter, former Bollywood actress Twinkle Khanna jumped on the bandwagon, poking fun at Modi’s viral images. The Bollywood actress turned lifestyle author is known for being vocal with her progressive opinions.
“Folks please sign up-After seeing so many spiritual images in the last few days-I am now starting a series of workshops ‘Meditation Photography-Poses and Angles’ I have a feeling after wedding photography this is going to be the next big thing 🙂 #AJokeADayMayKeepJillSane.”

Modiji said, "Amit, things are grave.
So I will go and pray in a cave.
Cameras will gyrate,
And I will meditate.
Just the kind of tamasha I crave." pic.twitter.com/IdLzAljX6Q
