A twitter user who is highly believed to be a student tagged the official twitter account of Virudhunagar district collector and asked if he has leave for “Karthigai” Deepam occastion and the reply he got from the latter became a trending meme among the users of micro blogging social media users. The collector himself reacted to the meme with a positive note and his twitter handle grabbed a special attention.
Karthigai Deepam is a traditional festival observed by Hindus in the Southern states of the country. As the festival is very important for Tamils all over the world, people would celebrate it by worshipping God and children would burst crackers as they did on the Diwali festival day. The name of the festival born from the name of the god Kartikeya. In Tamil calendar the name of the particular month is Kārthikai.
However, the auspicious day is not considered as a public holiday by the government which led to a school student creating a fake twitter account to ask his district collector whether he could have leave on the day. Tagging the official twitter account of Virudhunagar district collector Meghanath Reddy, the user asked “sir is there any leave for karthigai in VNR”
