APOLOGY
A hundred, no a thousand, no a gazillion apologies are in order. I used to look at my blog everyday and feel so sad that no one ever left me a comment. Then a message by "the visitor" made me realise that it was all my fault! Blog ignoramus that I am, I hadn't even understood that certain trivial steps were necessary to view and publish comments. So now I've published all your comments and I want to thank you! Keep commenting and I will try to keep writing:) I am going to need lots of encouragement because I am an inherently lazy soul!
I am going to reply to your comments now, I hope that's ok! :)
@Sayesha- It was REALLY nice talking to you. I hope we meet next time I come!

@ Kroopa- Yup I am indeed Dinesh's much older sister!

@Kutichavuru- Thanks!! Great name btw!

@Priya- Thank you, I know, poor V, she was really upset!

@Why am I, Smiling girl and Balaji Rajan- Still haven't learnt the language :(

@ The visitor- sorry, sorry, sorry!

@Insane genius- yenna da, you are as insane as ever! :) I didn't go to Pune, no time.

@Twisted dna- "In my case it was intentional though" Why on earth???
@ Vidhya Rajesh- "especially the destinations on the bus boards" That's why I don't travel by bus! :)

@ Ekta- Think of the desi version when you want to call someone akka :)

@Shalini- its ok pa, you can continue calling me akka :)

@ perspective inc.- "rose by any other name......." Yes that's some consolation:)

@ the_girl_from_ipanema- "CANNOT wait to tell my sister that." What did she say ??

@anantha- Actually the witchy angel calls me yekkow :)

@ the chosen one- Please continue to love my moniker!

@Ravi- Hello and please keep coming back!

@ Ketaki- isn't it???:)

@ Smiling girl- "In Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Tulu, it means Sister." Thank God for Indian languages!:)

@Megha- Thanks for finding it so insanely cool!!

@Mosilager- Hmm well I found it when I was googling around so I suppose it might be right. I would be happy though if it wasn't!! Maybe there is more than one word for excrement :) You speak Afrikaans?? Wow!!

@Dinesh- Darling bro, there's no way I am writing about our beloved nephew!!! :)

@kiwimyl- Well I do have a blog and I can honestly say you inspired me!!!

@hari and kannan raman- am gonna make a serious attempt at writing!

@ myadventures- Oh yes I know who you are!

@drastically me "ps: I felt the same way as your friend did. Maybe, I was naturally expecting a kucci rat..." Actually speaking, me too!

@ravi- "weighfully' wrong". Ha ha ha!!!!

@smiling girl- Louise Brown's latest pic appeared in the king of all tabloids- The Times of India! Yup she was born in 1978.

@the chosen one- "I'd be 20 pounds lighter" me too, me too!

@visitor- errr letter no. 7?

I want to thank all of you for wishing me on my birthday!!!!

I am tired now! Please keep commenting, I think it will inspire me to write!!

not really 'speak' as much as know when i'm being insulted and can give back in the same language :) i used to live a few hundred km from south africa for many years so picked up the important stuff. kids call it kaakaa but the adult version is definitely kak.

@ Mosilager- Ah I see!! :) This is where I got the definition from: http://www.wordgumbo.com/ie/ger/afr/erafreng.htm
and while we are discussing that, I discovered some more meanings as well:)
Akka was a Finnish goddess, Akka is also a pejorative term for wife, or old woman in the Finnish language and Akka are a tribe of African pygmies!
Now what does Mosilager mean??

@the chosen one- Thanks!

@the visitor- am raring to go :)

wow! i used to wonder why my comments were never published. (thought you were a snob of sorts..but your comments on other blogs dispelled that image)..should've guessed. (tee hee)

:) great now, i will come here often to leave my $0.02.

btw, my sister was grossed out and upset. she's happy i don't really call her "Akka", but always refer to her as "Akka"
hehehhe.. it's still funny.

Mosi lager is a beer in Zambia... at some point it had won the best beer in the world award, or maybe that's just an urban legend from Lusaka. The Zambian football team always wins any tournament that has crates of Mosi as the first prize, that's how good the stuff is. Here's a picture.

For getting yourself in the comments game I think you should also set up a blogroll - a list of bloggers you visit - this will encourage people who see their name on your site to leave comments and have you on their blogrolls!

You shall soon be on mine!

Blogger The Inquisitive Akka said...

@ 30in2005- Thank you, thank you!Now I have to figure out how to set up the blogroll :) Everytime I see your name, it strikes a chord! Are you planning to change it to 31in2006?:)Becoming 30 is a rather momentous event in one's life!
