Dialect Confusion – BM 26

Published January 26, 2014 by Bingo's Mom

I don’t know how many of you can understand this post but still …. 🙂

When I was reading Ani’s post, I remembered an incident that happened two years back. I was at my sister’s place. That was the day before I left to Hyderabad from Chennai after Bingo’s birth. Mean while here, in Hyderabad, BD along with my in-laws shifted our house. 


BM (over the phone from Chennai) – I am doing shopping here. Should I buy anything for the house (it was only 2 days after they moved to new house). 

MIL (from Hyderabad) – umm… yes we need to buy utensil stand and curtain for the window near main entrance. If possible get it from there otherwise we will buy it here. 

BM – Ok, how big is the window?

MIL – (told some measurement)

BM – Which color should I get?

MIL – As you wish but, make sure it’s a ‘madi’ curtain.

BM – slightly confused but said ok.


What my MIL meant – folding curtain

What I understood – cloth curtain, so that it can be washed if some ‘theendal’ happen. You know this ‘madi’ ‘aacharam’ stuff. ~Facepalm~


Republic Day special 🙂
