Karuppu Potti……

I was flipping channels on the TV when there was a Tamil news playing out. Its so funny to see regional mediums translate the English words into the native lingo and all the more funny,listening to them on the news.. So when the black box of Air India flight was discovered from the wreckage,the news went something like this

Air Indiyeah vimaanuthudan karuppu potti kandupidithullanar

which roughly translates as the Black box of the Air India flight has been discovered.

Black Box was literally translated as Karuppu Potti,headmaster becomes thalappan and the like. Funnies.. 😀
