 The News Minute | March 18, 2015 | 1:25 p.m. IST  Well, the #AdarshLiberal and the #AdarshBhakt debate has now reached their homes and families.  Borne out of a Twitter war that began a week ago, these two memes now seemingly have a life of their own. The thread was started off by a chart, spin offs from the “Adarsh Balak” comic strips which mock the concept of the “ideal boy” in school.  The #AdarshLiberal trend which started it all mocks the hypocrisy of the “liberal” who, for example, supports PETA while gorging on non-vegetarian food. Its counter trend, #AdarshBhakt or #AdarshSanghi, plays with the fact that the “sanghi” or “bhakt” has RSS affiliations and worships Narendra Modi. Now, the two "adarsh" boys are on memes with their entire family in tow, so after the “Adarsh Liberal Family” strip came out, a riposte is also out there. While the AdarshLiberal has a father who writes for The Hindu and a mother who is a Naxal apologist and human rights activist, the AdarshBhakt has a father who works for Sudarshan TV and the mother, seemingly bound by a patriarchal setup, sits at home. So, this came about: An #AdarshLiberal family is well settled and earning good money #BecauseOfNehru pic.twitter.com/Mc8Vgopw8F — Adarsh Liberal (@AdarshLiberal) March 15, 2015 And the rejoinder to that was: @karunanundy one more 👉 presenting you an exclusive pic of #AdarshBhakt family @Joydas @daddy_san pic.twitter.com/PmuY5Cg8iu — Nitin Chavan (@a20nitin) March 18, 2015 And these are how it all started: These are the main reason why #AdarshSanghi are cooler than #AdarshLiberal ;) pic.twitter.com/yoHkNWDghK — Smriti Z Irony (@smritiiranii) March 11, 2015 Just in case you missed.
