Almost four decades after regaling the audience with his hilarious "English is a funny language" monologue in Namak Halaal, Amitabh Bachchan has proved this point yet again.

Explaining how a long, wordy sentence in English could be condensed into a succinct one word in Hindi, Mr Bachchan wrote: "Just look at the efficacy of the Hindi language:

Who can deny, in the face of such a brilliant example, that Hindi is definitely a more efficient language? The simple "hain", after all, can be used to express a range of emotions from confusion to wonder to anger.

Since being shared online, Mr Bachchan's tweet has collected over 12,000 'likes' along with hundreds of comments.

And a few users pointed out that English, too, has a stand-in word for the versatile hain.
