This ‘n’ that! – Sep.17, 2012

Q1. Two Tamilians and two Kannadigas are on a train. During the journey, all four get talking. When the train halts at some station, one Tamilian and Kannadiga get down to stretch themselves. After some time, the train starts slowly to move. At just that moment, the Tamilian and Kannadiga ask each other, “Nimdu yaav ooru?” Both of them say the name of the place. Not only do they say the name of the place, they also tell their friends to get into the train. Both of them say just one word.

Can you guess what they both told?


Q2. What is the difference between Devegowda and lord Ganesha?


Q3. A Bihari was standing near JP nagar with his girlfriend. She asked him to take her to a movie. She immediately began scolding him for writing such horrible mails with no punctuation marks. He stopped an auto and told a word that the auto driver understood. The same word was also like asking the girl: You mean , ?

What did he tell?


Maternity ward: The department of a hospital that provides care for women during pregnancy and childbirth as well as for newborn infants.

Eternity ward: The department of a hospital that provides extensive intensive care for patients who suffer for a long time and who cannot be discharged.


We all know that Bangalore has many people from many parts of India. Maybe to remind each Kannadiga resident who has been here all his/ her life that this is still our city,  BBMP has written on many walls across the city: Nenapirali, Idu Nimma Nagara!

Sarcasm at its best!


I was travelling in a bus towards Dairy Circle yesterday. At Shantinagar (Double Road) bus stop, a couple of elderly men, dressed in Dharwad style, got in. One asked the other: Nimhans stop tilidaitenn? The other nodded which meant ‘Yes’.

But they both missed getting down at Nimhans and had to alight at Dairy Circle. The guy who had asked the question was blasting the other fellow: Hucchenle ninage? Stop gottu antha helde? Nee Hucch &@$% Maga yenle?


Eco friendly Ganesha = No Make-up

All other Ganeshas = With Make-up


En route KBS (Kempegowda Bus Stand), I saw a wall on which it was written: Illi Cheetigalannu Antisi (please stick bills here). An English teaching institute has pasted some bills on a portion of the writing very intelligently. At the end of the wall, I read “..dhisalaguvudu“.

(Illi cheetigalannu antisidavarige shikshe vidhisalaguvudu).


A1. The Kannadiga says: Baguru (also Baa Guru) while the Tamilian says Vijaywada (also Vijay Vaada).

A2. The Former calls himself ‘son of the soil’. The latter knows he is a son from the soil!

A3. Kamakya (also Comma kya?) The answer was in the last line. 😉
