An announcement was made during a session at the ongoing Jaipur Literature Festival at Diggi Palace. Oxford Dictionaries on Saturday declared “Nari Shakti” the Hindi word for the year 2018.

According to Oxford Dictionaries, the word has been derived from Sanskrit and is used today to symbolize women ‘taking charges of their lives. The word was selected by Oxford Dictionaries (India) with the help of an advisory panel of language experts, including Namita Gokhale, Randhir Thakur, Kritika Agarwal, and Saurabh Dwivedi.

Officials said, ‘March 2018 recorded a large spike in the use of ‘Nari Shakti’ as discussion arose around the Government of India’s Nari Shakti Puraskar (Women Power Award) held on the International Woman’s Day.’

‘Nari Shaki’ encapsulates the spirit of our times, with all its struggles, Challenges and triumphs.’ said Gokhle, who is also the director of JLF.
