மெட்ராஸ் பாஷை

என்னாமே இத்த பாத்தியா?

I was mildly surprized to find மெட்ராஸ் பாஷை making it to Wiki.

This wiki gives a good background on this unique lingo prelevant in Chennai. I call myself a 'true' madrasi yet I didn't know a few (lot) things like:
  • மெட்ராஸ் பாஷை having Urdu influence
  • சாவுக்கு கிராக்கி மருவி சாவுகிராக்கி ஆனது....
Heard in the office today..
நீ give giveன்னே நான் giveட்டேன்

BTW: This wiki page could use your help.. It is listed under 'clean up' section and is looking for folks to polish it up a little..

(My friend Krishnan Ramachandran alerted me to this wiki..)


  1. நீ give giveன்னே நான் giveட்டேன்

    Funny....LOL :)

    Madras baashai - unbeatable.!! Wonder how it started.!

    I am not sure if it existed in the 60's and 70's?

  2. whoa..that's way too kool...koom baashai into wiki...(no offense intended)

    am on on my way to check out if there's is an entry for Kounder bashai or nellai bashai..i wudnt be surprised to find one if not now at least in the near future..

  3. Narayanan

    Not sure when it started.. but it seem to have taken a distinct form in the last 10 years with the confluence of Madras Bhashai & Thanglish

    Willingly or not over 10 million people are part of it..

    Yes, it is amazing what you can find on the net / Wiki these days..
