The Indian Entertainment industry is facing stiff competition from the political landscape with absolutely bizarre and I have to say, hilarious incidents being reported everyday! Yesterday’s episode was about Internet during Mahabharata.

Oh no! That’s no mistake because that is exactly what newly sworn in Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb just said in an interview yesterday. Claiming the existence of Internet during Mahabharata were his exact words as he said the following, “Internet and satellite communication had existed in the days of Mahabharata.”

“WHAT THE F*CK?” were the exact words of people all over the country, and Twitter literally erupted with jokes poking fun at Biplab Deb’s accurate knowledge of history.

Right from ancient pen drives to extremely weird scenarios of imagining the existence of Internet during Mahabharata like ‘the fight between Pandavas and Kauravas occurring due to a dispute in a family WhatsApp group, Twitter was unforgiving to say the least.
