(Word courtesy - shy Bangalore boy who is varking very hardly to ju-ice up the picturekolity of Radiowaves in said hometown. Has no time to write words-geerds endall.)

See, when fragrant jasmine flowers blossom lavishly in your own frontyard, you dont even notice. Not a hai or a baai or a deep appreciative sniff as you pass by. In fact you make a face at the dust on it's leaves & wish it didnt need this much maintenance (although it doesnt). So if finally, huffy at being neglected for so long, Jasmine decides to uproot itself and shift to neighbouring people's frontyard, entire story will change. You then realise how nice she smelded (i humbly ask sorry from you, I dont know the past-tense of 'smell'. Its not 'smelt', is it?), how good she looked & how much you miss her. Sorrow at your foolishness makes you grow beard & drink all call, while joyous naibars keep off one bhangra-programme to welcome Jasmine into their home.


Pssst: try and re-uproot her after a week i say; 99.99%, foolish naibar would also have fallen prey to 'frontyard's jasmine flowers' syndrome & yuar beloved Jasmine must be pining away for you. (Take bouquet-gikay andall, dont forget)

Usage

Jincymol: Sigh. Muttatthe mullakku maNamilla.
Mincymol (Aye stop sniggering mané. Mallu names will be like this only): I egree. 99.99% of the time it is 100% true.
Sonam: Francch mein baat mat karo yaar! Explain me in 'ngrezzi.
Jincymol: No no, it is note Frenj. I was just saying in Malayalam that ''frontyard's jasmine flowers will not have smell''
Sonam: Haan haan, woh to bilkul c'ractt baat bola tune
