One of the charms and beauty of our language is ‘HA‘ as different from ‘A/AA‘.

It is Hethe(y) and not Athe(y)/Ethe(y).

Like, the correct way to say is :- Hatti [village], Haalu [milk], HaLLa [river] etc. But I am disgusted and disappointed to hear the above words being mentioned as ‘Atti, aalu,aLLa‘.

In one of the latest releases of the ballad Beradha Bellie – ‘Kaakay haadhara– is sung as Kakkay aadhara‘. Disappointing.

By the way, in many words, the meaning completely changes when you substitute HA with AA. For example, Haalu – milk becomes ANGER[Irritation] when AALU is used.

Harachu – bless, Arachu – Find, Haday – lie down, aday – close

Ignorance may be a bliss but not an EXCUSE.

  1. Although unfortunate in a way it is good that the sound ‘ha’ is not being used. According to ancient Indian numerology texts, the use of the sound promotes indigestion!

    Prabhakar, I am flabbergasted. HA promotes indigestion..ha..ha…that is news to me – Wg Cdr JP
