Chachacha

Thursday, November 27, 2008
The guests arrive.
Immediately the hostess starts the formalities.
"Will you have tea?"
Tea tea tea tea it is all the time!

And then the guest play their card.
"Oh tea? No nothing thank you! Nothing at all!"

And so it continues...

This typical scenario was immortalised in a famous bollywood song.

Guess which one?

Hamesha..."Tumko chaha?" "Chaha?" "Chaha?" Chaha?"
Aur..."Chaha? Kuchch bhi nahin! Kuchh bhi nahin!"

(Chaha means tea in atleast two Indian languages I know - Marathi, Gujarati,, Kannad and maybe others too)

Hey after many days eh?
Hi to you too!
How are the holidays coming along?

Dhak...because Thinking got Tanked. Remember ;)?

@Scribbler
I guess chaha in bengali would be Cha aerated with laughing gas, just like soda and stuff has carbon dioxise ;).

Yeah! Cool new business idea. Hot new fizzy drink. I can already see Coke and Pepsi cowering away to obliviation!



On second thoughts...Yuck!

@kanan

Yeah when they heard about it they gasped "Wha...? Taj..?!!" :P :(

Stupidosaur said...

@hp

Damn I thought I knew my gujju well.

Sigh! This is what happens when your growing years are torn between multiple places.

BTW just confirm for me will ya, whats written in gujarati on packets of some of the tea like Wagh Bakri- Cha or Chaha?

If it turns out to be Cha, not Chaha, you can refer to my comment to Scribbler above ;).

@world in general
Hope my Maratha Chaha fort is still standing. Anyone for challenging that too ? :P

Ketan said...

I'm not 'world in general'. I'm more special than that. So not responding to this post. :P
