I overheard this conversation while I was writing lines of code....
A south Indian colleague was trying to learn Hindi.
He was asking what is the word for "Elephant" in Kannada. Another colleague said it is आने
He was quick enough to relate it to आना meaning "To come" in Hindi.
Continued asking what was the Hindi word for "Elephant". Someone mentioned it as हाथी.
He was like "Oh! I thought हाथी means a Girl's hand and हाता is a boy's hand; as हाथ means hand.
LOL......I laughed away unnoticed .......
