vuvuzela

 

The new word which is recently added in the oxford dictionary is vuvuzela. This is very popular in the South Africa football match and this is a pipe like thing which is prepared of plastic. The vuvuzela is carried by everyone in the stadium and they played the device to make big sounds. By the end of the football tournament, two crore vuvuzelas are sold and the business had increased by three crores. They are trying to introduce it in the common wealth games in Delhi also. This word is first used in South Africa and it is originated from the Zulu language. The people in the remote areas in South Africa used to play this pipe like device and call the people for meetings.

There was a dispute about the invention of the device when it got popular during the football tournament in South Africa. There are people who tell that the device is first seen in Mexico also and there are few others who tell that the device is first used in South Africa in 1965. The players and the sports associations are saying to ban the instrument due to its huge sound and 114 decibels of sound is produced in the stadium due to this instrument. This is equal to the sound of the plane take off and is more than the sound of the crackers. The Hyundai Company had prepared 35 meters vuvuzela for the football world cup in Cape Town in South Africa.
