“Slayy Point” went viral last year when its creators, Abhyudaya and Gautami. decided to check out the comments section of their channel. In a video titled “Why the Indian Comments Section is Garbage (BINOD)”, shared on July 15, the duo showed their subscribers some of the strangest comments they received. One of them, by a user named Binod Tharu, contained nothing but his first name “Binod”.
Soon after the video appeared online, the comment section of several popular YouTube videos was suddenly filled with the same word: Binod. Then the trend shifted to Twitter, where it attracted the attention of many meme producers.
The coronavirus causes tremendous stress
Meanwhile, on Thursday, India recorded a record 3,79,257 new infections and 3,645 deaths, the highest number in a single day. Hospitals continue to be overloaded with patients as the country’s health infrastructure has come under enormous strain.
However, on a break, India, in a more “liberalized and accelerated” third phase of its vaccination drive, allowed anyone over the age of 18 to register for immunization against COVID-19. The third phase begins on May 1.
