Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor recently took to Twitter to explain what the word ‘Ache Din’ means. The highly used term was coined in 2014 by the then Prime Ministerial candidate of the Bharatiya Janta Party, Narendra Modi during the general elections. The BJP had also used it as a slogan in the general elections.

As per Shashi Tharoor, the meaning of word ‘ache’ is continuous or prolonged dull pain in a part of one’s body. He even explained the usage the word by making a sentence that read, “the ache in her head worsened”. According to Shashi Tharoor, the synonyms of ache are a dull pain, pain, pang, twinge, throb.

Meanwhile, ‘din’ means a loud, unpleasant and prolonged noise and this is how the word was put in a sentence, “The fan made an awful din”. According to him, uproar, loud noise, confused noise, cacophony, racket are some of the synonyms of the word.

However, this seemed to have not got down well with many on the social media and they gave him a lesson in Hindi. One of the social media users wrote, “Lack of Hindi speaking is the reason why Congress has fallen so low”. Here’s what Shashi Tharoor tweeted about Ache din.
