Thiruvaiyaaru?

Filed under: Life as I know it — Celia @ 6:44 am

There is this girl who has joined our PG and become quite close to almost all of us. Since most of us are tamils and she a telugu, she was trying to get very friendly. Occasional hair pulling (literally :)), pinching (chellamaa thaan) and sometimes trying to interpret the language we speak.

At office too, she got into trouble with a tamil guy and wanted help coz of that. Thats when she came to me.

She: Hey, I need a word from tamil.

Me: Why yaar?

She: No, I need to know that. This guy told me that.

Me: Ok. Let me see. Do you remember the word?

She: No, but I asked him what it means.. He said it means “You deserve it”.

Me: In what context πŸ˜‰

She: Really!!! Don’t pull my legs now.. YEah, I got one more point.. That word… hmm.. I guess it is “Thiruvaiyaaru”.

ME: What??

She: YEah.. What does it mean?

ME: Its a place!!

She: Uh Oh!! I think then then word rhymes with that.. Do you know what it is?

Me: !!!!

She: Go yaar! You don’t know tamil only…

  5. @jam – hmmm.. ungala kalasiradhukku neraya aalu irupaangannu nenaikiren. Thats why you immediately came up with “thaaye… ” πŸ˜‰

    @ttm – avvaiyaaru? lol

    @nanyaar – Yeah πŸ™‚ That guy had said “Unakku thevai thaan adhu”. We found it out after so much of round-table-discussions, research and calculations πŸ˜€

    @sujit – Yeah yeah.. am already beginning to doubt that.
