Unicode Consortium, the organisation that approves and standardises emojis, has released a list of 230 new emojis that will be making their way to various platforms this year, and among them is an auto rickshaw emoji. The transformation of the three-wheeler - ubiquitous on Indian roads - into a yellow and black emoji, got everyone thinking the same thing - you could use this emoji to say 'no'.
After all, as anyone who has had to use auto rickshaws regularly will attest to - there may be a lot of them on the roads, but getting one to agree to take you to your destination is a whole other ball game.
Take a look at some of the reactions to the auto rickshaw emoji below:
A lot of people had the same thought - this emoji could stand in for 'no'
