Netizens have been going berserk after seeing Google translate the word “unworried” as “avivaahit” in Hindi, which means “unmarried”.

The actual meaning of unworried is “not worried” or “not afflicted with mental distress or agitation”, as defined by Merriam Webster dictionary.

Twitterati, of course, had a field day. “Google understood that unworried are those who are unmarried. Google is wise,” wrote a user.

Another remarked, “Once you GoogleUnworried’ in Hindi, the married people become more worried, as in India, it’s not easy to get out of marriage, even if there are major differences.”

Soon after the Hindi translation went viral, people also began translating the word in other languages, like Urdu and Marathi. And the results were similar. In Urdu, for instance, the word “unworried” translated to “ghair-shadi-shuda”, also meaning “unmarried”, a Twitter user said.

In Marathi too, the word translated to“avivaahit”.

When translated to Tamil, the result was no different.

Google, however, has rectified the translations and added the correct meaning since then. So you may not be able to tally it now.
