India created history in the space on August 23 as Chandrayaan-3's Vikram lander module successfully touched the moon's south pole, opening new avenues for space research. (Image: ISRO)
As the country celebrated, memes and cartoons flooded social media. Here's a look at a few of them. (Image: ISRO)
A cartoon, titled Pre-Rakshabandhan, shows earth tying rakhi - depicted as the Vikram lander - on "Chanda Mama's" hands.
X (formerly Twitter) user @Pvt_insaann shared a meme image of Nawazuddin Siddiqui saying "Chand pe hai apun (We're on the moon)".
X user with id @iamSureshParmar shared Shah Rukh Khan's emotional winning moment from Chak De! India. He perfectly captioned it as "Every Indian".
In a lighthearted tribute to Vikram Sarabhai, user @sagarcasm shared an image from 3 Idiots with the caption, "Vikram Sarabhai watching Chandrayaan 3's landing on moon from heaven".
On the other hand, another X user @Atheist_Krishna had a doubt.
As ISRO released pictures from the lunar south poles during descent, X users compared it to a bad cricket pitch.
While other said the lunar surface had potholes, in a lighthearted banter.
