Significance of 20 in Hinduism

March 7, 2013

My friend Radhika Ganganna wanted to know the significance of number 20 in Hinduism.

I came up with this “Thamashe” list.

20 is an oft used number in daily life here. For eg:

1. ippatth sarthi helidru adhey tappu maadthiya.

2. ippathnaalk ghanteli ippath ghante facebookke aaghoythu

3. ippath sarthi imposition baree

4. meter mel ippath rupaaye aagatte!

5. ondhu ippatth jananne kardiddu functionge…mane mattige!

6. mola IPPATTH-rupaayaa?

7. yenramma, ippath rupayi kammi ide? (Old lady bargaining with the fruits vendor at 8th cross Malleswaram)

8. patient: eegondu 15-20 divasadinda kaal novvu!
doctor: ee medicine togolli. ippath divasa bitkondu banni…nodona!

9. nange ippath varsha aagiddaga, kallu thindu jeernaskothidde. (thatha to mommaga)

10. adhenu aa cartoon film-na ippath sarthi nodtiyo….hog odhuko!

11. in school, 20 is very significant…. exam-alli marks ippatthakko, 25-kko?

12. madhyanha nange ondh ippath nimsha nidde maadidrene samadhana (atte to sose)

13. …chennagi kalsaadamele, ippath nimsha bitt bidi (aduge prog.)

14. (peon scratching the back of his head) yen saar, khushige, yeno coffee-gifffee-ge ippath rupaayi ilwa?

15. test match gellake 20 wicket togondraaythu!

16. police to kalla: bitta andre, ippatth hallu udrogbidbeku!

17. son to grandfather: thatha, mba-li pareto principle antha ondh ide. adara prakara, roughly 80% effect-gella 20 percent-e kaarana. idanna 80-20 rule anthanu kareethare.

18. radhika calls veena: hi veena, what are you doing?
veena: hale hindi film nodthidhini…thumba touching aagide.

veena: bees saal baad!

19. power cut….appa to maga – ippatth-ravaregu maggi helo!
