To curb the spread of COVID-19, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a virtual interaction with all the Cheif Ministers had suggested organizing a ‘Tika Utsav’ all over the country from 11 to 14 April. A lot of people had criticized his suggestion because a lot of states are facing a shortage of the vaccine and a number of vaccination centres have also shut down due to the shortage. Amid all this, PM Modi’s ‘Tika Utsav’ seems impossible in any state. However, in the recent development, Mumbai-based economist and co-author of Indianomix Rupa Subramanya has come up with a tweet in response to the ‘Tika Utsav’.

Rupa Subramanya tweeted “LOL. Does he not know “Tika” in Kannada means anus?? #AnusFestiva“. And in no time netizens started trending Rupa and started commenting on her tweet.

Rubbish. In every language there are few words which might be funny, offensive in another language.
Keya(name in Hindi) = fu¢k U(Kannada)
Sule(surname) = better not to say what’s that in Kannada.🙄
Tullu(jump in Tamil) =v@gin@(Kannada)
Tuni(cloth in Tamil) = P€nís(Kannada)
