Definition

From the literal Kannada 'yaak sumne?' comes why simply?

Part rhetorical question, partly a word of caution, why simply? is a piece of gentle, indirect advice disguised as a question.

Why simply get into that fight? Or why simply go on M.G.Road at 6pm & get stuck in traffic? Like that.

Usage

Deepa: Mom, I got my first salary! Im going to buy for you one silk saree from Nalli
Mom: Why simply? You buy one dress for yourself putta. I have so many silk sarees that I dont wear, finally I am giving them to you only, to stitch designer evening gown!
