Chinese President Xi Jinping is in Islamabad on his maiden visit to boost strategic ties between the two nations. For the purpose of this visit a think tank has been created and it has been named ‘Research and Development International’ or RANDI . That’s right. While we snigger over their creative-disability or lack of knowledge of the Hindi word, Twitterati , including Fatima Bhutto, has reacted.
For the uninitiated this is what it means:
Well, that’s an unfortunate name for a think tank… http://t.co/DvCTM00gU8— fatima bhutto (@fbhutto) April 20, 2015
“The new think tank is the first joint initiative of China and Pakistan which will be dedicated to research on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor,” said Senator Mushahid Hussain, RANDI co-chairperson, according to a press statement issued by the Islamabad office of Pakistan China Institute.
