Developed by engineers from Chhattisgarh, Odisha, and Karnataka, Chingari is the Indian alternative to TikTok.
The app debuted all the way back in 2018 but has gone viral just recently when TikTok started losing its share in India due to its myriad of issues - including the case of allowing misogynistic content - and the subsequent Indo-China tensions along the border.
Along with a plenty of content to explore and share, Chingari also offers support for multiple Indian languages and a dark mode.
"This is the only social application developed in India which is a complete rival to TikTok App," Ghosh tells TOI. "The app is vernacular and is available in multiple languages including regional languages like Odia, Gujarati, and Marathi, too."
