Eye Opening Facts...

We went on this place for work for a couple of weeks and we had great amount of eye opening experiences in our life... It opened our eyes so much that we are sitting here in the middle of the night trying to type some non-sense into our dormant blog... Some other people might want to call it jet lag, but you don't believe them...

Anyways, since the place was international, the eye-opening experiences too are... and we were just waiting for the right time for Iyerospace to go global... you know with recession and all... with costs coming down... we thought this is just the right time to sneak in a bad post... with so much bad stuff happening around this world... nobody might notice this... so here goes nothing...

You know the Mexicans... they have stolen the language from us Indians... our eye opening experiences and subsequent research tells us just that... Some guy told me that the Mexicans pronounce all their 'L' as 'Y' which brought all our pronunciations of the Mexican delicacies to earth... but then the positive side of it was we discovered how the Mexicans slowly but steadily stole our local language and disguised them by replacing the spellings and finally changed the pronunciations on our 'Y' with their 'L'. Here is an example

Quesadilla - Pronounced "kaise diya" is actually what all of us say when we go to vegetable vendors... Isn't that stealing in public?

What we now plan to do is to sneak in "Iyerism" in their culture in the same way they stole our language...

We propose that we create a couple of new words like

Saptilla - Pronounced "Saptiya" (tamil word which means 'have you eaten?')...
Poilla - Pronounced "Poiya" (tamil word which means 'get lost')...

Don't be surprised if you find something like this happening in the future... in one of the popular mexican joints...

Tam1: Saptilla
Counter Guy: what?
Tam1: Poilla... *walks away... serves them right*

what say? eye opening or jet lag?
