Definition

Another one of the myriad ways by which Indians register their protest publicly. Chakka jam is Road Blockade enforced by large groups of strikers because of which all traffic comes to a grinding halt. It is yet another way of spreading misery all around, and a form of protest which seems to make the powerless feel more powerful.

Usage

"Hamaari maange poori karo nahi toh kal Sadar Bajaar mein chakka jaam, sabere 9 baje se teen tak"
