No ‘Ram’ In ‘Ramdhenu’ , Twitterati Gives Her More ‘Rong’ Ideas
West Bengal Council for Higher Education found out that the term Ramdhenu – which has been traditionally used to mean rainbow – was ‘communal’ as it literally meant bow of Lord Rama.
So they secularised the word and replaced Ramdhenu with Rongdhenu, a new word created to celebrate the Indian secularism.Essentially, they said – anything related with Ram can’t be secular in India.
Twitterati had fun playing with Rong kind of Rongs:
‘Ramdhenu’ changed to a non existent word ‘Rongdhenu’ and ‘Aakashi’ changed to urdu word ‘Aasmani’. Language jihad by mental Mamata. pic.twitter.com/253UCw3opA
