Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who was addressing a seminar in Delhi on bullet trains was interrupted while speaking by a man on Saturday morning but the senior BJP leader taught him a lesson by giving a stunning reply. In a video of this incident that was posted by ANI on its Twitter handle, Jaitley can be seen addressing the gathering. The Finance Minister said he has seen a lot of ill-informed debates regarding the bullet trains in the last two weeks.

As Jaitley was about to continue with his speech, one man from the crowd said, “Arun Ji bullet train ko Hindi mein kya kehte hai (What do you call a bullet train in Hindi).” To this, Jaitley replied by asking him to shut up and be serious about things. The Finance Minister said that he has taken a note of what this man had to say and now he should be serious. He then continued with the speech. However, the man who had interrupted the Finance Minister can be heard in the background saying that it was a very serious question. FinancialExpress.com cannot verify the authenticity of the video.

Watch the incident here:

The bullet train was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe last week. He laid the ceremonial foundation stone for the 508-km, Rs 1.1 -lakh crore Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project at the packed Athletics Stadium.

The facility that is slated to come up by 2022-23 on Japan’s financial support will also help reduce the rail travel time between the two Indian cities from over seven hours now to less than three hours. “The area between Mumbai and Ahmedabad would become a Shinkansen economic zone, where trade will get a push,” Modi had said while inaugurating the train.

    If this incident is true, then Mr. Arun Jaitly should not have told the man, who asked the question, to 'shut up'. It is true that certain English words, when translated, into a native regional language, will throw up laughable words. We can call Gaadi in Hindi which sounds odd. It can best be translated as 'Adhi-dhurant Gaadi'. Some Hindi Pundits must find some suitable word. Jaitly might have told this man that one has to wait for the right type of translation. A Minister of his stature must not lose his temper so openly. During a jovial chat, I asked a man, whose mother tongue is Hindi, what is the translation for a car 'Back-light' in Hindi. He simply said ' Gaan Bhathi'. How odd and laughable it sounds. So, honorable and choosy words must be found out in all indian languages for all English words.

        After seeing the lot of train accidents recently it is time to run Bullock Trains for Fool Proof safety for all the passengers rather than going for Bullet Trains.

          "train" itself is not properly translated beyond carriage vehicle so wat to translate for bullet train unless an engine is designed "indigenously".. waited is dat day!! >> | i think some "reverse" derivative words can be found from language(s) and with the topping of stability the services related to bullet trains will be easily named. next words like "NIMESH" can be explored for naming departments such as control sections..etc rest is foreign credit and deirs only..so its imported surely!!!! a bit

              sahi thrashing kiya..hindi bakne walon ko bura lage lekin is desh ki basha English hai. It cannot be changed. Why show your frustration by cheap antics instead of learning new language? और इसका मतलब ये नही कि इंग्लिश बोलने वालो को हिंदी संस्कृत नही आती।ignorance is not bliss.

                  Lol. In this government, they don't hold press conferences at all. And when they do, they ensure no questions are answered.

                    Is it such a big issue to give so much publicity.I do accept that one should not trivialize the serious matters
