Mumbai-based Namaah posted a screenshot of the message, written very eloquently, she sent to her extended family before quitting the WhatsApp group and it has started a movement of sorts inspiring many to follow suit.
In today's personal victory, I quit my extended-family WhatsApp group. I cannot fully express the relief I feel. pic.twitter.com/E02iXtbLvh— Namaah (@The_HappyNoodle) October 11, 2017
And desis on Twitter pretty much went wild.

Same. Shared it with my mum just now to show her how "I saw it on WhatsApp' doesn't make it gospel truth.— Ramya (@ideasmithy) October 12, 2017
Awesome sauce! Also Nice template for all the groups I've been trying to exit gracefully.— picket fence fever (@thy_me_basil) October 11, 2017
Many shared their own stories of how they left their respective chat groups.
Very well said. I left my school group for the same reason. My parting words were "Leaving due to disproportionate signal to noise ratio."— Madhuri Vaidya (@madvaidya) October 11, 2017
I did this few days ago and life is so peaceful I tell you. pic.twitter.com/gGxT4HFTz6— Sabita Chanda (@itsmesabita) October 11, 2017
