A:\

Recently I read two posts (In Soumya's Blog and in Jagan's Blog) about Madras Slangs, which reminded me of a funny incident that a friend of mine narrated to us. He was in a Cyber cafe in Madras and someone in that place said this, "floppya thooki a colothula podu pa" (Translation - Put the floppy disk in the 'A' Drive). This is where Madras slangs and technology come together :-)

The wikipedia article was amazing. Reminded me a lot of Chennai.
The bus drivers uttering nonsensical abuses at rowdy auto drivers, in tense traffic jams, the fish markets in Chennai, the Triplicane area in general.
Flooding of memories and loads of laughter

Me--to-->Anbu, Me:
Yeah, all of us had a hearty laugh when we heard this first.

Me--to-->Krish:
Righta sonneba :-)

Me--to-->Me,Krish:
Quite true. I hardly see anyone using floppies anymore. It's either over the network transfers or USB drives.

Me--to-->Satosphere:
Yeah, I was over-joyed to see the Wikipedia entry. Pretty true, it brings back a lot of memories.
