So here's where you ask questions about the language, the people, why we love chappatis, and like to show off. And whatever else is on your mind regarding Gujarati's and their language.

No offence to the baruchi speaking gujarati's, but it sounds so weired, i have loads of bharuchi friends, and it's difficult for me to keep a straight face, while they say somthing in gujarati *the bharuchi one*(i end up laughing). It's all fun.:) Mind you they take mick out of my "better" guji.:okay:

Yes, we (yes, I'm a guji) sure do, and it's different from "s". The only problem is that, apart from the guji 'ulamaa and those who've learnt Arabic through one means or another, most of the gujis back home pronounce it as "s" anyway!

The difference is only that they speak differently..different dialect...some of the stuff they say is cool man....i have few baruchi friends and i just love the way they speak...

Baruchis are from a place called Baruch in India
whereas Surtis, they are from Surat in India

I don't know if it's alipawr:rollseyes, but i have a friend, if it wasn't for his manly voice box, it can get pretty hard to distinguish him from a male to a female. The Gujarati he speaks is totally one sided and somtimes speaks as if his a girl. (Ok i went a little far then, but it's so true, it's all the same)

Masculine and feminine is out of the window for some gujis.;D

I think served as a dish, it's called what Sanobar says it is. But we get them in blocks, and it's called khamman. And I'm sure khamman is steamed and made from besan too.

Ooh Zak, go out and buy some for lunch. Eat some for me too.

That shop too sells it's own homemade Khaman. Hehe. But it's some miles away, so we only get it the odd times in a fort-year.

Can we move onto paterya now? Does anyone know what they are? Not that nice, but they're made from big and I mean huge leaves, filled with some yellow gooey looking stuff, sliced into rolls, and then shallow fried.

I remember we made them at home once and they turned out wrong and wernt done properly......because theres this long process in making them I think.

I used to have kitchree n karee, but what is this other thing, tarkaaree? I can't stand it no more. There's also a variation of it called barkee I think, something like that anyway.

What about the small tiny samosa's we have? I don't know if it's a whole way Gujarati thing, but everyone around here loves our small somasa's. Oddly I like the big Pakistani ones instead.
tarkaaree is also known as hannu? Known as curry in english. erm... it's those dishes eaten with roti and rice..

mum makes barkee once in a blue moon. it's made with rice but you do something to it to make it all runny.. (sorry, i don't know)it is such an old dish that when it is made we all love it so much its gone in a second.:giggling:

I hate that, they have that in bengali too, becaues the letter zed isn't in the bengali alphabet.

My name begins with a zed and it just sounds bad when it's pronounced with a "j" :grumbling .

I was totally bewildered the way the Guji neighbourhood are so keen in your personal affairs, and those ludicrous remarks they make, and on top of that the amount of backbiting is terrible. Can’t they just mind their own wits?

The disturbing fact is none of them are related to us and they wanna know everything about you, or spread gossip around, and it’s mainly the oldies, or those with their ‘over’ guji speaking style (giving a lot of emphasis to the guji accent.) :?

IF you meet a man called MUFTI AYUB PATEL in preseton,tell him ZUBAIR from NEWZEALAND said salaam..
...im his nephew :okay:

Mate,believe me,its not a 'blackburn/preston guji' thing,gujis all over the world do it.Gujis,pakis,europeans,somalians,somoans,tongans ,fijians,....

Its human nature. One we have to learn to control,but alot of people give into it.sadly.

I am proud of myself for the fact that i dont get caught up in it,but yeah,i've witnessed so many gujjis doing it,it makes my blood boil too.

the best thing you can do is to keep on reminding them of the hereafter,that they cant achieve it until they learn to control their tongues.
