Eljay, you are right about the mutilation of English words in Indian serials. One other word I can think of is "emotion". Suja often tells people not to get "yemotion". Aaarrgghh!!
 
I am not one of those who reject the globalisation of language. I speak English most of the time. It's also fine adopting and adapting English words for technical terms and new innovations, such as computer. But we have a rich Thamizh language with a long history and lots of words that can capture nuances well, so why can't these serial writers just say "velli naadu" in place of "foreign" or "aarthiram" or whatever for tension/emotion, etc.
 
But I know this is an impossible battle to win, so as you suggest, I should watch these serials with the mute button on!

Script writers, please note our request.  Stick to the language you know properly, if you don't know tamil well, then say so and get out of the script writing business, and we will send some gifted people from here.

Thanks Laksh for the update with spicy comments. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Have this doubt. Suja tells her would be ma-in-law not to mention abt. divorce notice to anyone. But what will happen when they receive the court summon? At that time won't it be a greater shock to the family specially to Varadha?

Maya is taking unduly long time to get the computer graph of Meera.Who is going to have the last laugh when they find the resemblance between meera & suja ....ganesh?? Wink
