Google translation is known to tickle the bones of netizens every now and then, unknowingly. In the recent episode of Google's hilarious English to Hindi translations, the software translated “unworried” to “avaivahit”, which means ‘unmarried' in Hindi.
The incorrect translation was first pointed out by Mahesh Murthy, the popular Indian investor and marketer. Murthy tweeted about the glitch by posting a screenshot of the same on Twitter and pointed out that “Google probably needs Hindi-speaking linguists and AI/ML engineers :-)”.

The hilarious translation quickly caught the attention of netizens and brought a dose of laughter to users across social media platforms. Some users candidly joked that Artificial Intelligence has finally become “intelligent enough” to understand the truth.
However, as the meme caught up, Google has finally taken down the translation and has corrected it to ”nishchint”.
