Are you ''Gangulified''?

''One has been insulted, abused, kicked and thrown out; then taken back again''- in short that man has been ''Gangulified''. Perhaps a new word is going to be added to the English vocabulary once again. For the past few days I'm hearing this particular word from many of my friends and associates. Its being used as an adverb and I'm yet to come across the present tense use of the word. I've heard none says ''I'm going to Gangulify that man.'' Since the invasion of Britain at the hands of the Galls the English language has been enriched with countless words with foreign origins. The King's or Queen's English has lost its ground many a time and has bowed to make place for terms and coinages of the other languages. Many Indian words are found in the Oxford English Dictionary and many are added every year. May be we'll found ''gangulified'' in the next edition of the Oxford English Dictionary. So friends come forward to share your experience in this regard.

Yes you're right dear friend. Not only "Avtar" but you will find a lot many Indian words in English vocabulary. The trend started since the British came to India. The trend has been more prominent sin the 1960s. The first of the Indian words tobe recognised was perhaps Guru, then came Hartal, the strikd or Bandh. Therafter, a lot many Indian, particularly Hindi words has found their places in the Oxford English Ditionary. For example, Chaddi, Roti, Bhaji, Chicken Curry and recently Banyan. Truly India is shining and rising. Our corporate stawlarts are acquiring British and other corporate giants and we, the common people of India, are invading their language.LOL
