Samosapedia Neologism to describe the almost Houdini like ability of the educated urban Tamilian to flit in and out of any setting with practiced ease ...you know..sort of like a Chameleon...

The description would fit any urban educated Indian, I suppose, but indulge my small whim in creating a silly/punny neologism...

Intrepid POMO dude by day, he cannot get anymore traditional with modern outlook by night...

...Picks up the perfect California twang or Midlands Brogue or Noo Yawk mouth effortlessly, but can switch back to Mumbaiyya or Madras Baashai at the drop of a syllable...

...Impresses all his Amru friends with his socio-political commentary on the differences between the Reagan-era Happy Days and the Obama-era Big Bang Theory, but is happiest when catching up with Satyameva Jayate on YouTube...

...Spends many a waking hour working his Office's NCAA (or NBA or NFL) pool, but always has a CricInfo window open in his browser..

...and it does not matter when he debates with the Sommelier on the best California Pinot to pair with his steak, he cannot wait to get back home to his Dal Chaval or Thaiyir Saadham...

..May his "colorful" lifestyle continue to flourish...

Usage

...Man, this Girish bandha is something else..I met him at work last week and completely assumed he was a ABCD, but I'm at the Balaji temple this weekend and he is sitting there in his dhoti singing bhajans, Some Camilian he is...
