Dick, boobs and HAIR – Translate that into Tamil and you would have what we would call as some of our “Tamil bad words”. In fact, I believe, only in Tamil language is where you would come across our hair, or better known as ‘maire’, as a bad word! How on earth did that happened?
Anyway, nowadays schoolkids tend to remember more and more bad words compared to what they have learnt in school. Even our chinese and malay counterparts could easily utter some of “our” bad words, and we could do the same too by uttering their “bad words”. Bad words are still bad regardless in what language they are uttered.
Coming to our Indian society, the fact remains that even Indian girls nowadays would definitely know at least one of the major bad words that are available. Take an example of a ‘Kuthu vilakku’. She is a kuthu vilakku at a first glimpse but the moment you went to her and tell to her that she’s an attention whore (In Tamil of course), do expect her to retaliate using her own words. Once again, not all kuthu vilakkus would do that as a tiny little percentage would get offended on what I would have said previously.
Hopping to Friendster, when it comes to the “Who I want to meet” section, these wordings are very very common:
1) fU*K thOSe BacKSTAbberS
2) fU*K thOs3 b!tcHeS
Come on lar, who loves backstabbers anyway? The above two wordings are what I would usually encounter in some of the Indian girls’ profiles (Yes, guys are the same too). What they are trying to say in layman’s term is that they do not like backstabbers and bitches to add them as their friend. Saying that in plain English sounds a lot better compared to what some Indians girls would usually write, such as above. Now, I dare them to write the same thing in TAMIL. Could they?
1) Ol* yedukurran those backstabbers
2) Ol* yedukurran those thev*diyas
I would give out RM100 to anyone who could let me know of any Indian girls who writes like above. I know, for those who doesn’t, they would say “Oh, I did not meant that way. I was merely saying that I hate those backstabbers and bitches”. You know what, I’m amazed.
The point of this post is, some of the Indian girls would bravely write those F word as well as some other common “English bad words” either in their blogs or Friendster profile but when we, the Indian guys, tend to write the same thing in Tamil, we would be labeled as “yet-another-typical-Indian-guy”. Furthermore, I received two emails recently from two different Indians girls asking me to remove some of my postings as “they give a bad impression to some of our youngsters” as well as “degrading our Indian teenagers”. Dear sisters, ningge yenthe kaluthulle irukiringge?
Nearly a big percentage of us, the Indians machans and machis, would know some of the famous Tamil bad words. Some would be hesitant to use them in their conversation or writings whilst some would be the opposite. Be it English or Tamil, it makes no difference in the meaning except for the severity in pronunciation of some of the Tamil words.
Akon – I wanna F*ck you (a.k.a I wanna love you) is loved by many Indian girls (
Bangsar clubbing chixxx), but the same song, if it is to be sang in Tamil, would be hated by most of them. Yen pilenggela, yen?
Last but not least, to those Indian girls who tend to use some of the English bad words to show off their popularity as “modern and cool Indian girls” and to those Indian mandes who tend to use those Tamil bad words to show off their “Ketuanan mandes”, get a life. Talking about Indian mandes, they would never fail to amuse me with their talent. When there’s a fight, they would try their level best to drag the enemy’s mother to be interjected in a string of Tamil bad words, uttering it to his enemy, whilst his enemy would reciprocate by replacing the mother with the mande’s sister.
To these mandes, valge nam samuthaiyam. To makkals, get used to all these bad words and click the image above in this post to know some of the Tamil bad words and their meanings in English. Now, could I expect to be lambasted for this?
To those who hates me, go away you HAIR!
