  • The “dhoka” of the acronym actually refers to the cricket-bat-shaped stick a washer-person (“dhobi”) uses when to beat clothes that are being washed. “dhona” = to wash.

    There’s a variant using the word “danda” instead, this simply means stick.

    The sense of one’s eager anticipation being beaten down is the same in each instance.
