The Aapda ko avsar mein badal daala meme originates from the then Prime Minister’s address at the launch of auctioning 41 coal mines for commercial mining. The video was live-streamed on June 18, 2020 on the official handle of Narendra Modi’s YouTube channel. The PM focussed upon facing the COVID pandemic, defeating it and moving ahead in these difficult times by turning this crisis into an opportunity. The popularity of the meme surged when former Indian cricketer Virendra Sehwag posted it while congratulating Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal on his marriage. The English translation of Aapda ko avsar mein badal daala is to turn a crisis into an opportunity. The popular use of the Aapda ko avsar mein badal daala meme is to make fun of someone who completed low priority work during a crisis event.
