Rashmun, If you don't have anything to contribute to the thread, don't post nonsense.

Excellent waste of taxpayer money. Kudos to the genius who thought of placing a Hindi ad in a Tamil newspaper!

This is a indian railway ad. on fire safety measures. I guess along the lines of

"small small things result in big accidents".

the possibility cannot be ruled out that this hindi advertisment was in a hindi newspaper and the faint words supposedly representing tamil script at the top of the page were in a different paper whereupon Thanjai Nalankilli's legendary photoshop skills were put to good use.

lol pp X 10^6

aside: i noticed yesterday when i took out my ISC board results to compare them with that of my older that they used to teach us hindi till class 12 in our times -- not anymore. now they teach only up to class 10. also, his math paper was littered with 40% commerce stream questions (statistics etc.) in which my kid sucks. why can't they simply have different papers for science stream and commerce stream? uff!

Proves that naarthies never follow the laws anywhere in the country, and hence the railways must have found it necessary to post an ad in Hindi - the only language the hindiwalas working in the South understand.

Seriously, I want KV to answer why the largest tamil daily by circulation resorts to such tactics - where is the indignant Tamil Tribune article on that, I ask.

I don't criticize Thinathanthi. Get the Hindian gov money as much as you can. Otherwise it will be given to Sri Lanka to kill and rape Tamils.

Dear Kings and Queens of narrow parochialism,

Every country however diverse needs a thread of commanlity to run through it and that thread in our country can and should be a common language because food and culture will be far more difficult to amalgamate.

There is nothing wrong with everyone acquiring a working knowledge of Hindi and I say this as a Tamilian Indian...

you are so right na. but why stop at that? every souththiNDian woman should don her glittering lehnga and join her northindian sisters in a dil-deewana dance for their emperror jahangir in his harem. if they're lucky, the emperor may be sufficiently pleased to smile at the dravid gurrlz. moreover, we should strengthen that thread of commonality by stuffing all dosahs with chicken tikka masala, aloo-gobi *and* gobi-aloo (for variety), and ensure that no northindian slurps bucketloads of sambhar when no one is looking.

Germany's digestion problems demonstrates the issues in the best of circumstances i.e. same language, same base culture etc. SL especially would bring in resentment from the sinhalese for obvious reasons and the Tamils will come in with their own conflicts with the sinhalese.

I don't follow your logic. Language should be amalgamated because food and culture cannot be? The one does not follow from the other.

there used to be a hyderabadi who went around falsely claiming that hyderabadi (also known as hyderabadi dakhini) is fundamentally different from hindi/hindustani.

Agree....that is why everyone should embrace hinduism and accept it as the national religion. After all Siva and Vishnu temples are all over India and no one argues when it comes to these temples.

And, I say this as a true Koran-worshipping Musalman.

the reason you have no interest in this topic is because you were caught telling lies once again when you went around claiming that hyderabadi is fundamentally different from hindi/hindustani! i have given links to youtube videos depicting hyderabadi poetry sessions and confirming that hyderabadi is fundamentally the same language as hindustani. Moreover the words like kaiku, mereku, tereku in hyderabadi are variations of the colloquial hindi words kaahe ko, mere ko, tere ko. Of course there are a few differences (like the word 'Nakko' meaning 'No' which sounds a lot different from the equivalent hindi word 'Nahin' pronounced 'Nahee') but these are minor in nature.
i would suggest that you stop living in the PP-world, and have the courage to open your eyes to the real world.

the idea is for everyone to have a rudimentary knowledge of hindi/hindustani so that everyone in India can at least communicate with one another. Your father understood this a lot better than you when he addressed the autowalah in Chennai in either Hindustani or a variation of Hindustani(Hyderabadi Dakhini) when he visited that city with you once (as per your own claim).

could it be that your father will side with me in our argument over the importance of Hindustani?

from what i recollect, the first time you narrated this story on Sulekha you had said your father addressed the auto walah in hindi. Than later, which i reminded you of this incident on this forum, the hindi conveniently changed to hyderabadi.
it makes zero sense for a knowledgeable person like your father to communicate with the chennai auto walah in hyderabadi because he would know that hyderabadi is a local dialect i.e. a local variation of hindustani. it makes more sense to believe that he addressed the auto walah in hindi/hindustani.

1ad ho·mi·nem

adj \(ˈ)ad-ˈhä-mə-ˌnem, -nəm\



1: appealing to feelings or prejudices rather than intellect

2: marked by or being an attack on an opponent's character rather than by an answer to the contentions made

If you have an answer to my question to FlowerPower, feel free to post it. Otherwise, I have no interest in your theatrics.

i am referring to a specific incident narrated by you. in this incident your father spoke to an auto walah in Chennai in either hindi/hindustani or in a variation of hindustani(hyderabadi or hyderabadi dakhini). i am not questioning anyone's character. in fact i am being supportive of your father's views.
