‘Batter’ is a colloquial for ‘batsman’ in a game of cricket hence the Hindi translation, perhaps by Google, showed it to be ‘ballebaaz‘. The words ‘Idli/Dosa Batter’ were printed on the packet in English, Tamil and Hindi languages and the literal translation left Twitterati in splits. Taking to his handle on the microblogging site, a user shared the picture of the packet and captioned it, “Damn you Google Translate! #Indyeah! (sic).” Also Read - Fifth Edition of Abu Dhabi T10 League to be Held From November 19 to December 2
What followed were hilarious reactions from other users who instantly cracked up the mood on social media amid the pandemic gloom. While one user wrote, “If batter is ballebaaz – then battery should be artillery barrage no? What would barrage be? Legal drinking age? (sic)”, another commented, “what if I am a bowler? what do I eat then? (sic)” and yet another tweeted, “Banda ab bats khayega (A guy will now eat bats?)” sic.
