Several eons ago, fashionable people imitating Elvis Presley roamed the streets in a land called Kerala…Polka dotted shirts with designs that appeared like carbon covalent bonds and side burns that would have rendered contemporary shavers useless were sported generously by our older generation…. Though with a slight difference coz the malayalee Elvis was shorter and he was not Caucasian…That made Babumon rather an overweight Boney M with a moustache…
The resident English language instructor mentioned to us that trainees are punished severely for using malayalam phrases like… ente eeshoyeee...ente Velankanni maathaavei...bhagavathi...ente ammo…
While they are encouraged to use english exclamations like oops, ouch and schmuck liberally.
- Tuvaalaa >> tissues
- Pants >> trousers
- Kaapi >>> Cappuccino
- Dosa >>> crepe
- Puthappu >>> bedcover
- Lifebuoy soap
- Godrej shaving box
And the dude has definitely not heard any of these…
- Cabbage thoran
- Parippu vada
- Ayn Rand
- Malayala Manorama
Put both your hands inside the jeans pocket while you walk..
Wear over-sized T shirts preferably with a picture of a black rap singer.
While walking, do it like you have a painful sore on one feet which moves to the other feet after a step.
Happy weekend to all dudes and dudette’s!! J
