‘Mitron’, ‘Notebandi’, ‘Gau-Rakshak’, ‘Vikas’; these are the words which were also considered with Aadhar, but the widespread discussions and debates about ‘Aadhar’ was the major reason for selecting it as the word of the year by “OXFORD DICTIONARY”.
All the debates and controversies surrounding ‘Aadhar’ should be thanked, because of them it has been named as the Hindi word of the year for 2017, by Oxford Dictionary.
This announcement had been made at the ongoing ‘Jaipur Literature Festival’ on
Saturday, 27th Jan, and this lead to a massive buzz online. Everyone is cracking the same joke, for the ‘Aadhar’ landing itself in the Oxford Hindi Dictionary.
As Indians, we have been linking everything with Aadhar whether, its mobile number, bank
account, PAN card or Entrance Exam forms, Tweeple now are unanimously saying that “Aadhar has been linked to Oxford”.
Obviously, there is no dearth of Aadhar jokes and memes on the Twitter, but the Oxford honor has added a new dimension to the entire exercise.
And when not taking a jibe at the biometric authentication system, Twitterati generally had a good time dragging UIDAI into anything and everything unrelated to its stated purpose .
Now it’s not just Tweeple anymore, last year when Netflix India decided to troll UIDAI, the sarcastic replies from UIDAI’s twitter account to have won hearts.
Especially the time when UIDAI was asked how many Aadhar cards can Raavan get?
For me, this is enormously funny. Twitter has always been known for trolling more, some are positive some are negative, but this is highly insane.
Now Aadhar card is too linked with Oxford. I mean how much fun one can go. I cannot comment more but in my opinion, Modi Ji is highly powerful and influential.
