Zoomaka

blending and clipping; proper noun
virtual Dhamaka over Zoom
 
Rice’s South Asian Society typically holds an event called Dhamaka in person. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this was not possible in 2020. Instead, they held Dhamaka online over zoom. Many events have started to alter their names to show they’re on zoom and different this year. Likely to keep with this trend, Dhamaka was also referred to as Zoomaka. This was done by clipping Dhamaka then blending zoom with the clipping.
Etymology : from root words zoom and Dhamaka
