A damaged road is clearly a problem everyone faces and many quickly responded to the post with their own version of ‘damaged road’. From Russia, Nigeria, Argentina, Pakistan and of course India, netizens quickly shared photos of roads filled with potholes.
“Meanwhile in Argentina we are celebrating our pothole birthdays,” one user tweeted, sharing a photo of a birthday cake with a number 3 candle on it.
