  1. In the Light of the funny English language which I saw in the Light made me remember how people used to take me so Light before and during those days I was Light in weight.
    Is it sufficiently Light Kamal?

  2. good post – I think most, if not all, languages have inconsistencies & words that are used for different meanings – makes learning one’s own language a lifelong challenge 🙂

    1. Daal it was nice to see you here.
      As you have said about the languages. Here is one more instance I would want to give the readers here in this post.
      In most of our Indian languages which are of course originated from the Sanskrit language, there are some words which constitute of more than one word some times even four words make one one word. For example I give here below one word.
      This any Indian will pronounce and say with ease. You know what it is. It consists of four words and is almost a sentence.

      “Independence Day Remembrance Meeting ”

      Hope Kamal is listening.

      1. “I sure am u r a great”
        In the construction of this sentence there is something which I did not understand.
        Basically I do not understand these short forming of words into alphabets. The younger generation do use it rampant while texting, maybe it is convenient and takes less time.
        Thank God I do not find at least in our blog world.
        Kamal I feel we should not encourage this as bloggers because we are writers and represent the literary part.
        I hope you understand.
        So would you now explain what you meant.

      2. Oh k like that. No no Shiva these r funny and fun loving little puns so have posted there is no meaning in it at all. Our language is like that and let me know what u did not understand. Another thing there r no shortform in the language


      3. Oh My God! That is what you wanted to say.
        What a praise I missed to know. Kamal!
        There is a ‘Vachana’ in Kannada by Basavanna. These ‘Vachanas’ are written by the Sharanas of the 12th century.
        Vachana means they are lines written by them in ordinary script to make know the ordinary people of the Vedas, Agamas and Upanishads.
        Now the Vachana says:

        “Do not Praise me as much that I am to get crucified”
        It means again to say that, please do not Praise so much….. hahaha.
        Having a Great Day in conveying these things to you all.

      4. is mashing a whole sentence together a form of xenophobia? just teasing – tho doesn’t it complicate learning? have yet to try learning hindi – or am I mistaken about the language too?

      5. Yes it is Mashing of words to convey a full meaning, but it is definitely not xenophobia.
        It does not complicate learning at all, it is the part of the learning. Once learnt you can mash that way but not all, only a few selected ones.
        To add to your curiosity I shall add one more word to it “Utsav” (meaning of that is festival) to it which makes the word like this.


        It is now a five words mashed into one.😂

        Now Kamal will read and tell you with ease that it is:

        ‘Independence Day Festival of Remembrance Meeting’

        No, you have not mistaken of the language at all. Yes it is Hindi too and can be of any Indian language.
        As I told you some words are highly influenced by the Sanskrit language.
        I hope you understand.😃
        See you Daal, very soon again.

        google translate says ‘SWATANTRADIVASASMARANOTSAVASABHA’ means in English “Independence Day Celebration” – even google wants to shorten

  3. Hahahaha! This is great 😂 Sometimes, I think English is easy, but then so many words and their pronunciation are so confusing. I’m learning Spanish, and I’ve found that I much prefer the way that language is spoken and written!
