Pakistan, China and RANDI…Ooops


New Delhi: Giving Twitter a field day, China and Pakistan on Monday launched a thinktank to focus on the development of their economic corridor.

According to a press statement issued by the Islamabad office of Pakistan-China Institute, the newly-formed think-tank has been named ‘Research and Development International’.

The cherry on the cake is ‘RANDI’ that took the jaw dropping attention. While the name of this think-tank is seemingly harmless, it is the acronym — ‘RANDI’ in case you didn’t know, ‘randi’ is also a very crude Hindi word for ‘prostitute’.

There were mixed reactions about the acronym on Twitter.
