Urban Dictionary makes fun of Modi

Mitron, the trademark word of Prime Minister Narendra Modi uses frequently to address his audience, has made its way to the pages of Urban Dictionary.

Modi uses mitron which means friends, whether speaking at election rallies or making historic announcements such as the latest demonetisation policy.

Mitron has already become a subject of several spoof videos and social media ridicule. Now the word has made a place in Urban Dictionary, which helps to make sense of the colourful street language around you.


Aaron Peckham’s Urban Dictionary describes Mitron as:

“1) A large group of unsuspecting people, about to be hit by something they will take a long time to recover from.
2. A precursor to bad news for large groups of people.



The person who described the word had used the funny etymology.

According to the user, the origin is from the “Hindi word Mitron, ironically meaning 'friends'. In recent times, however, it has been used to brutal effect to make a series of anti-people announcements.”
