Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani recently proposed renaming dragon fruit as ‘Kamalam’, a suggestion that has inspired several memes and jokes on the Internet. Now, netizens have taken to social media to replace the word ‘dragon’ in any phrase with ‘Kamalam’, resulting in new and hilarious names.

With ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ becoming ‘How to Train your Kamalam’, to Dragonfly becoming Kamalam Fly, take a look at these hilarious memes:

Rupani, at a press conference on January 19, said the name ‘Kamalam’ was apt as the characteristic fuchsia ‘spikes’ or ‘petals’ of the fruit resemble a lotus in bloom.

Though Kamalam is the name of BJP’s headquarters in Koba, Gandhinagar, and the kamal (lotus flower) is the party’s election symbol, Rupani said no politics was involved in the renaming.
