Comedian Vir Das recently performed at the Kennedy Center and at the end of his show, he narrated a poem called 'Two Indias' where he spoke of the two different countries he lives in. Right from COVID-19 to the price of petrol and the communism that has gripped the country, Das covers it all in his six-minute performance.

Some of the lines from the performance there:

"I come from an India where children in masks hold hands with each other and yet, I come from an India where leaders hug each other without masks/ I come from an India where we claim to be divided over Bollywood on Twitter and yet are united by Bollywood in the darkness of a theatre

"I come from an India where we bleed blue every time we play green but every time we lose to green we turn orange all of a sudden / I come from an India where out music is Bohot Hard but our sentiments are bohot soft / I come from an India that is going to watch this and say 'This isn't comedy. Where's the goddamn joke?' and yet I come from an India that will watch this and know there is a gigantic joke, it just isn't funny."

Users have loved how Das portrayed the political and religious conundrum India is in and have shown their appreciation for the same.
