    Yea .. originally: Aaj Shab Ko. We usually see it on Film or Stage Drama Benners that are being displayed in theatre. :)

    Speaking of such words/sentences. This reminds me of my lill cousin. He was like in his early age.. like 8, 9 year old may be.

    During the ‘sale-sale-sale’ season. Someday he read somewhere: “Burhiya ko ulti aa gayi”.. He kept on asking his parents, what kind of banner was it. Burhiya ko ulti aa gayi. Which burhiya had vomit and why? On asking where he had read that banner, everybody couldn’t stop laughing. It was actually written: “Barhiya Quality Aa Gayi” (i.e. Best Quality Has Arrived).

    Speaking of li’al brothers, mine once read ‘Motapa Khatam Karein’ (End your Obesity) on the back of a rickshaw, as ‘Mota Paa Khatam Karein’ (Kill your fat brother!)…:)

    lollzzzz …

    @ pretty simple, there is no such thing as tyre alarm. Its actually tyre alloy rim. So I guess they are right.


  20. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on July 28th, 2007 @ 1:45 pm

    Thanx for the correction that its “tyre alloy rim”, the way they write it still makes it ambiguous..


  21. Opee (unregistered) on July 28th, 2007 @ 4:54 pm

    True!


  22. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on July 29th, 2007 @ 4:08 am

    I shud have named this post as “THaa Naa Tow Nishp” …a perfect puzzle of words.

    I’ve heard oligopoly pronounced “Oh-lee-ga-po-li”).
    Once, I went to Bundu Khan and ordered a Chicken Cheese burger. The waiter asked, “kaunsi cheez.” I said, “Chicken cheese.” He said . . . you get the point.
    One the golf course: Hole-in-one = Holy Won!!!
    Plumbers are called “saantry walaahs.” They should be called sanity fitting wallahs.
