‘Backbencher memes’ are a series of memes that explore the capability and talents of students who prefer being as far as they can from the teacher, i.e. on the back benches of the classroom.
These creative memes clearly describe how the backbenchers deal with the everyday situations in class and survive the wrath of the teachers with such ease that sometimes even the teacher gets confused.
First benchers have always been the ones with nerdy looks, Einstein cloned brains and immense urge to please the teacher with anything and everything (especially to remind teachers for taking tests that they themselves have forgotten about.)
On the other hand, backbenchers are the ones with swag and rebellious blood pumping in their veins that make them look like the celebrities of the school. They are famous for, mostly being found outside the class rather than inside. Also, they are awarded with unique names by teachers and sometimes even principal that proves their fan-following.
Keeping the same fact in mind, twitter users thought that it would be cool to spread the talent and unique thought process of backbenchers via memes, as Indian memes have become a powerful tool to achieve fame.
