Exasperated Indians Are Using The Hashtag #Keep_It_Going To Get People To Spell Their Names Correctly


It's Sreejit, not 3G.

It's Santesh not Sandesh.

The hashtags #KeepItGoing and #keep_it_going were started to ask hilarious and random pop culture questions on Twitter and Facebook on an infinite screenshot loop and have a bit of fun.

Like this.

And this.

But as of end 2015, Indians have hijacked the hashtags to express their exasperation around the many weird pronunciations of their glorious names by strangers. A bunch of Twitter and Facebook users are now encouraging others to post screenshots of the correct spellings of their names. It's Sanchit, not Sanshit (WTF?) says one.

"It's not bhangi," writes an annoyed Shubhangi. Yash, not Ash, Sanjib, not Sanjeeb, Sanjiv, Sanjeev, and definitely not Sonjeeb.

Here are some who would like to call you out on not trying harder.
