CBSE uses 'Chellam Sir' meme asking parents to 'relax' ahead of results, wins the internet
To ease the pressure and spread some cheer, the Board took to Twitter and shared a meme using the popular characters from the web series "The Family Man".
With the Centra Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) expected to release Class 12 results this week, it is not surprising to see parents and children in nervousness and excitement. This year's new assessment process has also added up pressure among the students.
To ease the pressure and spread some cheer, the Board took to Twitter and shared a meme using the popular characters from the web series "The Family Man". One of the most interesting characters from the series was "Chellam sir". The meme features Manoj Bajpayee, who plays the lead character, making a call to Chellam sir and asks "Sir woh... Atharv ka CBSE result kab aayegaa? I'm too worried". For the people unknown to the series, Atharv is Bajpayee's son in the show.
Replying to Bajpayee's question, Chellam sir (played by Uday Mahesh) asks him to be patient. He said, "Don't be a minimum parent Sri, be optimistic. Jald hi aayega." The post is a take on the term "minimum guy" that is used in the series by Bajpayee's boss.
The inclusion of Chellam sir in the meme is due to the fact that he is seen as a man who is approached in case of any queries, causing fans to compare him to the search engine, Google.
