Shadwal Srivastava, a Mumbai resident, had recently ordered food from Zomato -- a restaurant search and discovery service -- and was wondering when he'd receive his food. Hungry, Srivastava, decided to escalate (it's food, after all) the matter to a Zomato customer care executive.
Srivastava, however, decided to engage in a conversation with the executive in shuddh Hindi. To his surprise, the official was a total sport. The resulting convo between the two turned out hilarious.
"I really wasn't expecting the customer support guy at @ZomatoIN to play along with my shuddh hindi gig," wrote Srivastava who goes by the @Pareshaan_aatma handle on Twitter. He also attached a bunch of screenshots of the chat, that can double up as a crash course in Hindi.
Since no one asked, here's the next part of the conversation 😂 pic.twitter.com/wIxoTxUYkr— Shadwal Srivastava (@Pareshaan_aatma) July 23, 2018
In case you need a translation for words mentioned here, we've got you covered:
1) Shesh -- Remaining
2) Bhojan Grahan -- Having the food
3) Uchit -- Appropriate/reasonable
4) Paryaapt -- Sufficient/adequate
5) Nishtha -- Loyalty/allegiance
6) Pratha -- Tradition
7) Ashobhidha -- Inconvenience
8) Dushkaarya -- Bad deed
9) Bhaagidaar -- Partner
10) Baadhit -- Restricted
However, this isn't the first time Zomato's quirkiness has caught the attention of social media. Last year, a Mumbai resident had used the service to order a cake and didn't leave a message to be written on it.
This resulted in bakery ending up writing generic delivery instructions on the cake - "No garlic, food must be spicy."
I ordered bday cake off Zomato.(didn't specify message to be added) Bakers took generic instructions in my profile & ran with it, I guess pic.twitter.com/xo7iEZN1MU— Priya Iyengar (@TweetAPriya) October 27, 2017
so the Zomato team kindly reached out to me with an explanation.. few chuckles were shared and matter closed.— Priya Iyengar (@TweetAPriya) October 27, 2017
After a few chuckles and explanation by Zomato, to make up for their error, the restaurant-aggregator decided to send another cake to Iyengar. Apologising to her, the cake read, "Sorry from Zomato, this cake is not spicy."
