The prices of onions in the country have shot up like a missile. Once priced at Rs 60 per Kg in the market a month ago, the same onions now cost Rs 160 per Kg. While this constant rise in price has created havoc in the country, it has also become a subject of mockery on the internet. Social media sites are flooding with hilarious memes concerning the price of the onions. A fall in the production of the Kharif crop following unseasonal rainfall in key growing states has reportedly resulted in the price rise of the onions.

The pattern that has been prevalent over a few weeks indicates no reduction in the prices anytime soon. The prices have hiked up by 100% and it is giving way to memes and trolls where the netizens are comparing the prices of onions to the conversion rate of a Dollar. Some shops in Bengaluru are selling onionsat Rs 200 per kg and the situation has left the buyers distressed. A swarm of memes has been circulating on social media for the unreasonably flared up prices of the onions. 

Where one meme calls the Indian onions stronger than the American Dollar, another meme shows a scene from Sholay where Gabbar Singh says his iconic dialogue "Ye haath mujhe dede Thakur" gets replaced with "Ye Pyaaz mujhe dede Thakur". A post on Instagram also shows the mouthwatering dish Chicken Do Pyaaza turn into Chicken No Pyaaza. Check out more memes:
