Pun,ctuation

Well, you have heard of

‘EATS SHOOTS AND LEAVES

is not about a killer

but a Panda – bear that

eats, shoots and leaves.

One comma , makes the difference.

Here is another one :

An English professor wrote the following on the blackboard and asked his students to punctuate the sentence correctly :

A WOMAN WITHOUT HER MAN IS NOTHING

All the males in the class wrote,

A WOMAN, WITHOUT HER MAN, IS NOTHING

and all the females wrote,

A WOMAN: WITHOUT HER, MAN IS NOTHING

[from the internet]

Badaga connection

Badagas consider bamboo shoots  curry- OTTUKUDI Udhakka- to be one of the most delicious dishes. In olden days, with the forest cover around the fringes of hattis [villages] gathering bamboo shoots used to be great fun for young girls. So was ‘savudey hirukkodhu – gathering tree twigs.

I understand that a kilo of bamboo shoots was selling for about Rs.80/- this year 2012.
