After Jagdish announced the challenge on his Facebook, what followed was a downpour of challenging words to test the comedian’s creativity and skills. These included complicated words taken fresh out of the dictionary, simple words that we utilize daily, complex medical terminologies and words in local Indian languages. As Jagdish started to respond to these words, more kept flowing in until very soon, the comedian found himself responding to 65 unique words. While many are hilarious, some are deep, sarcastic and at times philosophical, most of them carry a local Indian flavor. We have handpicked 15 to share with you here.
