Foreign Influence

A new word was born.
Old words were skeptical.
One murmured to another .
"I doubt foreign influence".

hahaha

I used to say many Manglish (Anglicized Malayalam) words in school --

'unsahikable' -- sahanam means to bear; so
un-sahikable means unbearable..

and so many..
so this strikes very well...

wishes,
devika

swetali said...

Lol!
That murmur sounds familiar, anything close to unpleasant happening around, bound to 'foreignly-influenced'.
Now you teach the words, the winning trick, blame the foreign forces!

You are too good.
Continue being good.
