Definition

Illness meant an exemption from having a headbath. But still cleanliness we have to maintain pa! The solution was to resort to a sponge-bath. Unless you were an Anglo Indian, no sponge-ginge & all was involved. You just took a good old thorth (a thin towel), dipped it in a mug of warm water, & wiped yourself from forehead to toes, carefully leaving out your head. Then with undher-one dry thorth, you wiped off the moisture from the sponge-bath. There! As good as new!

Usage

Pranav-Dad, I cant have a headbath today. Fever has come to me
Dad- *touching P's forehead* Ayyo. It is high fever. Okay have only a sponge-bath today & tell Mummy to give you Crocin.
Pranav-okay Dad. *staggering to next room & removing onion from underarm (ugh)*
