Chitthi Aayee Hai..

My earlier post on how the English Language is murdered daily in our country has found another deserving example.

During my last visit to Jamshedpur - a small and beautiful town in the state of Jharkhand, - I stayed in a hotel. While I did not have any specific words of praise for the service, their post –service operations surely swept me off my feet.

I received a letter from their Sales manager today thanking me for choosing to stay with them and urging me to visit again. While the intention behind the letter is noble, I have to share it here for the sheer exemplary value addition to my earlier post. The really insightful treatment of the language has been highlighted by my comments

Just to end on a high note, I'll quote a great work of poetry and it's very Indian translation for everyone's benefit - 

Teri Zulfon ke saye mein jeeta hoon.. Teri Zulfon ke saye mein jeeta hoon..
Isliye to I LOVE YOU kehta hoon!

Meaning: I live in the shadows of your hair.. I live in the shadows of your hair..
That is why  I say I LOVE YOU.

    I guess the first clue shouldve been that the name of the hotel was BS..
