Of Metaphors, Similes….

Kaleidoscope

What would we do without them!

Here’s one I had not heard of before:

Speaking of a woman (in politics) M observed:

‘Oh, she’a a mandhi…’

A mandhi is a female monkey. Normally used for an inattentive, not-given-to-emotions mutt. But this wasn’t it…

‘How do you mean?’

Adhu penum paarkum, mudiyum pidungum.’

A rough translation: She would groom you for lice…and pull your hair too (causing pain).

A person who is a mix of the good and the bad.

Any better way to say it?

Here’s a subject for your next book, Mr Porter!

Women’s Day or not,

it’s amazing this epic strength

of our society

does not get noticed,

talked about or analysed

by the management guru’s here and abroad.

We’re one of the few societies

if not the only one in modern times

to enjoy increasingly this benefit

of having, in our womenfolk,

ready access to an equally vast pool

of intellectual and labour (not just menial) resources

as good as any and excelling too

– a competitive edge very hard to match.
