Because this is a slow week and Indian twitter doesn’t seem to have anything better to do, people have started sharing their own ‘Rahul Bose moment’ on the microblogging app.
Take a look:

A cup of tea at Rs 120 at Triund top… Was worth it.

Then, this guy shared a ‘reverse Rahul Bose moment’:
Reverse Rahul Bose moment: Was in Bengal recently. My colleague and I had tea from a road side joint. Gave him a 20. The shop owner asked for 4 Rs. I thought, Rs. 12 for tea was expensive. The shopkeeper returned the 20.

This guy decided to throw some shade:
My Rahul Bose moment was paying 200 for watching Kalank

What was your Rahul Bose moment? Let us know!
Now, we hear that the Chandigarh administration has ordered a probe into the matter. Business Today reports that the Deputy Commissioner and Excise and Taxation Commissioner Mandip Singh Brar has initiated an investigation into the “illegal and exorbitant charge of GST” by JW Marriott on the two bananas.
