The EPIC roast of 2020 ends

There are some good moments as well in the year 2020 that made impact. While we were quarantined in our homes, nature started healing itself.

As the year 2020 is about to end and everyone is hoping for a Covid free New Year, Twitter asked its users to “roast” 2020. The official handle of the famous microblogging site posted- “roast 2020. Go.” and the response that was received from all over the world was hilarious.

There were thousands of replies which saw people talk about their experience by using anecdotes. Some people also compared it to a “worst ex”, “hit by a train” and one was smart enough to mention Spain without “S”.

Several brands joined in the fun and came up with very witty and quirky responses. The company used some of the replies for its ongoing outdoor billboard campaign.

Some of the interesting responses which caught the eyes are-

While we were quarantined in our homes, nature started healing itself. The pollution levels in major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, etc dropped to an all-time low. New Delhi’s pollution dropped down to 60% in just the first week of lockdown. Similar was the case of some other cities in the world.

Our very own and loved Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launched the 104th Satellite and created a world record. The launch vehicle which was used in launching all these satellites is PSLV C39. ISRO became the first space agency to launch so many satellites by a single rocket and made us proud again.

  1. The foundation stone of Ram Mandir was laid

Finally, after so many hurdles the foundation stone for Ram Mandir was laid in Ayodhya on August 5. PM Modi himself did the Bhoomi Poojan and laid the foundation stone of Ram Mandir. This was a proud moment for the whole nation as finally the exile of Lord Ram is over and he came back to the place where he belonged.

The year 2020 may not be a very good year but it indeed taught us many life lessons. We realized the value of our loved ones and the need to spend time with them. It made us realize the uncertainty of life and made us cherish every moment of our lives.
