While analysts have been saying that the slump is owed to a rise in crude prices, and offering complex ways to fix the value of rupee, social media offers a much simpler and funnier way out of this crisis.
From one-liners to sarcasm, it did not take long for social media to turn the ‘sad’ news around. While some people online are comparing this situation to Germany’s fall in terms of football, others decided to take the light-hearted optimism route. Some are even relating to the rupee!
Rupee crashed harder than Germany.

Rupee is low. Can we ask Rupee’s partner to take them out for shopping and lunch/dinner date to cheer it up?! Even a movie will help I’m sure. — MazelTov (@runjhunmehrotra) June 28, 2018

Things that are going towards their all-time low : 1. Rupee 2. German Football Team 3. Australian Cricket Team 4. Potholes in Mumbai — Bollywood Gandu (@BollywoodGandu) June 28, 2018
India is the third largest consumer of oil and the rise in prices has clearly taken a toll on the market.
