Today’s “Word of the Day” is balloon and it is a verb meaning “increase rapidly; rise, surge, soar, shoot up, escalate”.
Example Sentence: India is right now going through its worst economic crisis. The highest-ever contraction in the economy took place last year, unemployment has risen, incomes for growing numbers are falling, bank non-performing assets (NPAs) may be ballooning, and the fiscal deficit is rising. In these circumstances, it would be prudent to think through the pros and cons of the aggressive privatisation of public enterprises that is on the anvil.
