Ok..though the title of the article might suggest that I might describe my escapades but I will actually tell u some of the real life incidents which have shocked unsuspecting people around me...the culprit being the same words having really different meaning in telugu/hindi/English.
The holiest of the screw ups is when one of my friends,Kunal went to the Holy town of Tirupati for getting some blessings and stuff (though i think his parents wanted some blessing and this guy was dragged along :D). So these people went to the main temple to take darshan. The pujari looked at them and said "rape randi!". Kunal must have thougt "yoooho at last my prayers have been answered!" while his parents were too shocked to respond. We must have heard something else....but why is our boy grinning so much? "rape randi!! (with eyes widened)"said the pujari again. The boy became more happy as it seemed like a compulsory rule there. Then some person in the line realized that these people are not understanding telugu and explained that "Rape randi" means "Come tomorrow ".
The reverse thing happened once when i went to my native place. I am used to talkin in marathi with my sister. I was talkin to her ,"something something something fuck the 5rs something something". Those 2-3 golden words caused my cousins to freak out and one of them ran away to her parents and obviously she was asked to stop playing with us :'(. Actually fuckthe 5 rupees means "only 5 rupees" in marathi...poor me.
The third kind was due the fusion of telugu and hindi. Once some neighbour aunty was at my place and was talking to my mom. and i was playing here and there..or whatever.
Suddenly my mom remembered that she had kept some milk on the stove. She called me and asked me to turn off the stove. Then she asked me loudly "Doodh pe mooota hai kyaa". I burst into laughter. I dont know whether my mom realized it or not, but the aunty also started laughing. 'moota' means lid in telugu. the hindi telugu fusioned up sentence meant that did i pee into the milk! heeehawww
Well there there are lots of other such examples such as kanth which means throat in hindi :D and i dont want to describe what it means in english ;)
