It is very common for a lot of people to get confused between the names of garlic and ginger. But is it okay if you're the information minister of a country? Maybe not so much.

That is exactly what happened with Pakistan's Information and Broadcast Minister Fawad Chaudhary. In a recent press conference, he is seen talking about the reduction in prices of various vegetables and groceries.

While saying this, he also spoke about a reduction in the price of garlic, and then went on to call it adrak in Hindi, which is actually the name for ginger. He confused it with lehsun for a bit, which was the correct word, but finally settled for adrak.
