On Monday, an advisory issued by the state airline Air India, announced that from now on, the airline’s crew will have to say “Jai Hind” after every flight announcement “with much fervour”. Not to anyone’s surprise, the announcement went viral on social media with many making jokes at the airline’s expense.

However, the advice did not go down very well with Twitterati, many of whom found the ‘advice’ to be a rather tedious and weird diktat. Within hours of the advisory being released to the public, jokes about the possible future usage of the suffix abounded on the micro-blogging site.

“With immediate effect, all (crew) are required to announce “Jai Hind” at the end of every announcement after a slight pause and much fervour,” read the advisory issued by Capt Amitabh Singh, Director of Operations if Air India.
