In 2020, a new trend took over social media, challenging people to reveal their ages without actually saying the number. The idea behind the challenge was for participants to look back on things from their childhood that only people of their generation would remember. Now, the trend is back with a twist, and everyone from Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma to actor Swara Bhasker is participating in it.
It all started this morning when a Twitter user shared an interesting question on the microblogging platform. "Without saying your age, say something that a young person today wouldn't understand," Subrahmanyam KVJ asked his followers. Among those who responded to the challenge was Vijay Shekhar Sharma, the founder and CEO of digital payments app Paytm.
"A/S/L ?" the 43-year-old wrote in response to the query on Twitter. Mr Sharma's tweet referred to the Internet shorthand for "Age/ Sex/ Location" that was typically used in instant messaging programs and in Internet chatrooms.

Meanwhile, Swara Bhasker, 33, also participated in the challenge. "Blank call," she wrote, adding a smiley face at the end.
