Everyone who's had a broken refrigerator in the Indian summers, will understand the desperation. One such owner of a malfunctioning new fridge put out a distressed appeal on Twitter yesterday for help. Nothing wrong with that, except that he tagged Union Ministers Sushma Swaraj and Ram Vilas Paswan in his tweet. Swaraj's response had Twitter in splits.

The user who uses just one name on Twitter -- Venkat -- and tweets from the handle ‏@M_VenkatM, tagged Paswan and Swaraj in his tweet to complain about his faulty Samsung refrigerator.

"Dear Ministers, @Samsung_IN sold me a defective refrigerator, they r not ready to replace," he wrote with a screenshot of the company's response attached. Swaraj, who, in her career as Union External Affairs Minister, must have encountered many strange complaints, knew exactly how to handle this unique situation.

And of course Twitter lost its s**t completely.

Hope your refrigerator problem is solved now, Venkat.
