In what could be a heartbreaking news for many, an Indian advocate has issued a legal notice to WhatsApp to remove the “middle-finger” emoji within 15 days. Gurmeet Singh said that the gesture was lewd and obscene in addition to being an offence in India. “Showing of middle finder is not only offensive but a highly belligerent, invasive, obscene, lewd gesture,” he had mentioned in the notice. While we are yet to know if WhatsApp plans to take down the emoji, in times when people are getting more and more dependent on texting (and smileys), we decided to come up with six ‘sanskaari’ emojis that could make a lot of Indians happy.
But even if the middle-finger smiley is taken down for good, here are six ‘sanskaari’ emojis that we want to see getting added to Indians’ WhatsApp instead in 2018. We figured it was time for some new ‘expressions’ to be added to the ever-expanding list that could not only prove to be super-useful, but also happen to be Indian-sanskaar-approved (or so we think!).
These six ‘sanskaari’ emojis could make your WhatsApp game LIT:
