You know the future is exciting when an Indian girl in her teens displays the courage to shut down one of the most powerful men in the world.
US President Donald Trump’s controversial tweets have always been the talk of the day. But, when the most powerful man was corrected over his uninformed understanding of global warming by a girl from Assam, the whole social media came to celebrate the intelligence and courage of this Indian girl.
Astha Sarmah, an 18-year-old girl from Jorhat, Assam, recently took Twitter to show her disapproval of President Trump tweet that was mocking the phenomenon of global warming.
The mercury in Washinton dropped to minus 2 degree Celsius and Trump tweeted:
Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS – Whatever happened to Global Warming?
Trump’s ignorant dig at global warming made Astha take to Twitter to share the most appreciated befitting reply.
I am 54 years younger than you. I just finished high school with average marks. But even I can tell you that WEATHER IS NOT CLIMATE. If you want help understanding that, I can lend you my encyclopedia from when I was in 2nd grade. It has pictures and everything.
Astha said in her reply to the US president: “I am 54 years younger than you. I just finished high school with average marks. But even I can tell you that WEATHER IS NOT CLIMATE. If you want help understanding that, I can lend you my encyclopedia from when I was in 2nd grade. It has pictures and everything.”
While Trump’s tweet itself was slammed by the social media users, Astha’s reply received over 23,000 likes. Even social media users from the US praised her for the answer to the American president. Her reply was retweeted almost 4.6k times, showing the impact it had made on the Internet.
Some other tweets which showed how much people disagreed with Trump’s tweet:
In the last few years, Indian women have moved up the ranks to hold many powerful positions in the corporate world and political offices across the globe. They are busy gearing to show the world that they are determined to make an impact and won’t let their social hurdles stop them from achieving their true potential.
Hats Off to Astha and we wish to be publishing more and more stories of women leaving the mark through their intellect and courage.
