As last week Anand Mahindra confessed his dislike for the word ‘webinar’, he also asked his followers to come up with ‘customised labels’ that help replace the term. While several used came up with hilarious new words, actor Riteish Deshmukh and businessman Harsh Goenka also joined the fun and tweeted their own take on a word which people use for online seminars. While giving two examples for the term himself, Mahindra wrote, “more ideas are welcome”.
To alleviate my annoyance at the word ‘webinar’ my family suggested more customised labels... a webinar organised by a gentleman from Chennai would be a ‘Webinarayan’. A webinar by a guru would be a ‘Swaminar’. More ideas are welcome..😊 https://t.co/Rybt17mscA— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) May 28, 2020
While Goenka, who is the chairman of RPG Enterprise, came up with ‘ek chatur naar’, Deshmukh also joined the fun banter and came up with another hilarious term for a person who refused to attend the online seminar session. “Webafah” wrote Deshmukh, which is a term derived from the Hindi term ‘bewafah’ or unfaithful.

Meanwhile, several internet users also came up hilarious alternative term for ‘Webinar’. From “charminar” to “webinaari”, Twiteratti flooded the comment section with funny terms. One internet user wrote, “If done by a Charming person - Charm-inar. If done by a Cute person - Qutu-bminar”. “Webinar organised by the opposition would be ‘Blaminar’,” wrote another user.
