Author and columnist Shobhaa Dee on Monday triggered a Twitter storm after criticizing India's disappointing run in the 2016 Rio Olympics so far.
"Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity," she tweeted.
Social media lost no time in responding to her and here are some of the best ones.
