Memes on Apollo Hospitals and the secrecy surrounding the CM's health are doing the rounds on social media.

As everyone has a source in Chennais Apollo hospital memes and jokes pop up
news Jayalalithaa's health Tuesday, October 04, 2016 - 13:40

Social media users have been openly discussing Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa’s health in the last few days. While medical reports, fake photographs and even an audio by a mimicry artist (claiming to be the CM's voice)  were freely doing the rounds on WhatsApp, Twitter and Facebook were comparatively quieter, considering that they are less private means of communication.

However, given the CM’s prolonged stay, the memes have slowly started trickling in about Apollo Hospitals, the secrecy surrounding the CM’s health, and the public’s reaction to rumours.

1. An angry Vadivelu says in a jibe to journalists, “You can go to the neighbouring country and find out military secrets but you can’t find out the secret in Apollo Hospital?”

 

2. Anyone and everyone in Tamil Nadu has a relative working in Apollo Hospitals who has “insider information”.

Rajinikanth: How many more are going to tell me that you have relatives working in Apollo Hospital?

 3. Parthiban, who is holding an umbrella inside the room for Vadivelu, is labelled as Modi.

Vadivelu: See, he is sending a bouquet even for fever. Gold means gold, Modi is 58 carat gold.

4. With Amma’s health said to be improving, Apollo Hospitals may soon be rechristened, says this meme. 

“Since you’ve treated Amma, may you henceforth be called Amollo!”

 
And this joke summarised it well:
 
What I learnt in the last two weeks....
 
1. Everyone has a reliable source at the start of the conversation.
 
2. Everyone has a friend who works in Apollo hospitals... Hmmm. Apollo surely must be employing more people than Indian Railways!
 
3. Everyone has a minister's PA or a driver or a 'edupudi' as a close contact!
 
4. Everyone has extended families who have people matching point number one.. The reliable source types....
 
5. Everyone has a friend who knows someone senior in the administration and preferably in the police department!!!
 
6. Last but not the least, everyone knows the tea shop owner in Greams Lane
