Chumbak actually has a very interesting etymology. Derived from Chumma + Bak. Meaning Kissing + Stones .. So kissing stones = magnet :) This is what we first found out when we named Chumbak :)

Usage

Chumbak has some awesome magnets !

Full Background Drama for shameless plug purposes...

Was it love at first sight? The families could immediately tell that the lau kapals would get along. Samosapedia shot that sidey look, and Chumbak blushed. Then Chumbak pretended to walk away but Samosapedia held Chumbak firmly yet gently by the wrists, coaxingly almost. Chumbak said "Chumma don't bak bak", while Samosabrows shot up, "Ushoo!"

When the families finally obliged and gave the young ones their space, not a moment was wasted. Ideas flowed, sparks flew, and various brightly painted cups ranneth over, then and there. Hands were grasped, shaken, and the deals were made.

Hardly a week had passed, with Chumbak working furiously and diligently, when Aunty Logolakshmi fixed Samosapedia with one stare and said, "So, when are you giving us the good news?" Well, if it's good news you want, here it is: You shall have tins! You shall have posters! You shall have all sorts of fancy, hilarious items, freshly minted from the synergistic union of Chumbak and Samosapedia.

This is only the beginning. We here at Samosapedia absolutely love Chumbak, and we know the feeling is mutual. Look how the lovely pair is simply glowing. Star crossed means star crossed.
