    Treasure should be pronounced as Trezure or Treshar? Almost all SIs sound "Treshar".
    And also the word "Version". SI : Vershan ; NI : Verjan

    One word surprising me from childhood is "godown". Whether items are kept on ground floor or first floor, its still called as "godown"

    Godown comes from the Tamil word 'kidangu' !

    Wow, very honoured Plum. When I read back some of them (yes, I do, I am that vain sometimes), the editor side of me sees shitload of mistakes, very annoying. But they were written fast, at almost same speed of my thoughts (I learned typewriting back in early 90s), and are there. I don't go back and correct them. They are merely blog posts. Plus I don't get paid.

    I told you, right?

    "right" add pannalama.. i remember Rajini using this in "Priya" .. i think Sujatha is the writer for "Priya"
