Amitabh Bachchan, who is known for his iconic ‘hain’ in the 1982 film Namak Halaal, from where it gained popularity, is now giving Twitter a lesson on how these two syllables is a full sentence in itself.
Written in Devanagari script, and pronounced as ‘hai-en,’ the word really conveys a lot more than you would think. Really. Can’t hear someone? Can’t understand someone? Want a repeat of what they said? ‘Hain?’may have a question mark at the end – but it is your answer.
T 3054 –
Just look at the efficacy of the Hindi language:
I am sorry, I can not hear you properly, can you please repeat what is the matter ?

The tweet has over 30 thousand likes. People’s response to his ‘Hindi language lesson’ proves that they are clearly on-board, and not questioning, ‘hain?’
