thanks for this from sungminslove!
awwwe thank you! I love me name too haha. i know that sounds weird, but I really do! And ooo! yay! I love same named people! ahha is her name Sudha or Basudha? cos i’ve heard it both ways…. and haha! that is a coincidence!
and mmmm i haven’t seen one! BUT I would really love to do one, i think I will look for that now because I think a bunch of people would be interested in it. :)
and lots of pyaar to you as well!
wow! how interesting!!! well if you look for the mantra posts on my blog (go to my blog and if you type in mantra it’ll come up in the tags of the posts), i posted a lot of beautiful ones.
the hindu mantras are so beautiful. I’m so glad you’re learning it!! :D
THANK YOU! it took me a while, but i felt good that i helped someone out with it via typing!!! :)
juliabaaaby replied to your post:I was just wondering if you could give a written guide as to how to pronounce the Gatatri mantra I have been trying to figure it out online but people say it differently and I’m not exactly sure how to pronounce it. Thank you!
daaaaaaang. good job :)
pick ANY movie in the world. I want some good suggestions, though. And by good i mean,
awesomely ridiculous 90s movies
bwood of course
cute adorableness mushy movies
something that I can totally zone out to and write my supplements for my ED school.
oh good!!! i’m glad, i was nervous i wasn’t making any sense ahah.
anytime, if you have any other questions, let me know! also thanks for the follow!
p.s- if you don’t mind me asking, what do you want to learn it for! that’s so great that you’re learning prayers/mantras! :)
mmhmm, i do. it’s called Mangala Harati i think….not too good with prayer NAMES haha.
it’s a prayer for vishnu and garud i believe……and it’s actually sung in weddings sometimes
who is this, if you don’t mind me asking…
mmm, okay i’m not sure how good this will be, but i’ll break it down for you to make it easier to say…..it might be a little difficult if you’re not a hindi speaker, but i’ll try and help you out as much as i can through words and not my actual voice….
Okay, so the first line is
Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah
So if we break down each word-
Bhur- Boo- *and almost make a d sound, but then make a small r sound. So it should sound like Boooor, but not such a hard R sound.*
Bhuvah- Boo-vah *so same beginning as bhur, but end in v-ah*
Svah- this kind of sounds like Swah-vah, but said quickly it’s more like Swah-hah
Then it goes
Tat Savitur Varenyam
tat- like you’re saying the beginning of TATTOO so just TAT.
Savitur- pretty much just like it looks Sahv-E-toor
Varenyam- Var- *like jar* een (like the end of clean -ean)-yam (but not like yams, the thanksgiving dish, it’s not such a nasaly a it’s more like a mixture between that and yum)
Then it goes
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi
Bhargo: okay, so this is a toughie, in hindi, we have not so hard consonants…I know i keep saying hard and soft and that just means not to speak them with such sternness, if that makes sense….so it’s a soft b and it’s just Bar except it’s a soft r so it’s like that d thing i said for bhur…..it’s like you’re going to say bah and then make a d, but you say r……and then you say a little “ih” before the go which is just go. So all together…..Bahr-ih-go.
Devasya- this word, in the mantra kind of meshes with the other word, so it’ll sound like Dayv (the best way to hear the pronunciation of that word is if you know the name Dev….like the way indians say the name Dev is exactly how you should pronounce that.) so Dayv-ah-sya and the sya is said so fast that it looks just like it’s said but it goes right into Dhimahi so it’s more like sya-dee
Then it goes
Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayat
Dhiyo- Dhee-yo (like yo wassup)
Yonah- yo (still like yo wassup)- nah (not like naaaaah, but like nahhhh like if you said ahhhhhh when something feels nice and then added an n infront)
Prachodayat- Pratch-Oh-Die-aaaaht and then hindi speakers would add a little “eh” at the end of aaaaht….just for the mantra.
OKAY! so! sorry that was long, but that is the best i can explain it!!!
hope that helps! good question!!!
GASP. NO. WAY. PLEASSSSE PLEASE PLEASE LET’S HANG OUT. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVED YOU IN HUM AAPKE HAIN KOUN!!!!
You guys are so awesome, i’m sure i’ll be blown away!
please make sure you tell me who you are when we start talking (like tumblr address or something) so i know who i’m talking to! unless i just won’t answer, there’s a lot of creepers out there!
p.s- if i don’t answer right away, don’t take it offensively, i leave my AIM on all the time….
truuue. and YES. good :)
and yeah, that sounds right. it would be weird if they all ate red meat….
well you should do what you want! :)
well if you don’t like ANY of it, which is unlikely, just say before you eat, “I only want a little cos i’m not hungry” and if you like it, get more! and if you don’t, you only have a little to eat anyway! and what do you mean can’t eat it?
and yesssssss. dealz. i mean i can, i’m just not good at it.
and mm……..that’s really weird. i’ve like never heard of that….they must be realllllllly westernized.
hahah mmhm :)
wow! good luck!!! I want to major in acting haha, sounds stupid, but I do.
YES. YOU HAVE TO! (you would sooner or later, anyway!) and you have to just say yes! just blurt it out!
awwwwe, they know it’s hard to understand, it’s better than just pretending you know, my parents hate that. they have a thicker accent and some people just smile and nod and they hate how they don’t ask them to ask what they said.
hahahahh truuuue. i suck at using at chopsticks….and yeah, well pizza crust/bread stuff isn’t that different feeling from naan so hopefully it’ll feel natural! and YES.
oh, well if your friend is Hindu (like me) they won’t eat any meat and usually punjabis don’t eat red meat, none of us eat cow cos it’s sacred in our culture. :D
COOL! hahah yeah it’s like my TOP TOP TOP choice. and Oh! I JUST heard of that school on thursday. my friend is applying there too! good luck for the ED!! i think you’ll get in….what do you want to study?
HAHAH. YOU HAVE TO SAY YES. if you message me before you’re going to your friend’s house……just be like YELL AT ME TO SAY YES. ahahhaha. ;D
mmmm pretty much gobble it up….i mean, we (our family) use our hands a lot like if you have naan or roti (breads) with dipping stuff…..emm….otherwise, it’s really messy food. like it all meshes together on your plate. if you don’t like your food touching….well suck it up cos that’s indian food! ahhaha. but yeah, everything elsse you can eat regularly…and you don’t have to use your hands if you don’t feel comfortable……but yeah. haha
RIGHT?! NYU……i know i probably shouldn’t say that, but like…..yeah, what’s the worst that can happen?
yeah, i guess haha, i will get tired of some things as well too, but i can’t really escape my culture, so i might as well embrace it!!!
and YES. good. she should have one! and you should go to an indian wedding, they’re SO great. I think I made a post about desi weddings or parties….you can find it on my blog ahha :)
OH MY GOD. YOU HAVE TO EAT IT! the spice really isn’t that bad unless you hate spices….but REALLY try it! palak paneer is really not spicy at ALL and neither is chicken tikka masala (if made the more american way) and mmm…..rice is fine (NOT BIRYANI it’s spicy!) and yeah
but YOU HAVE TO EAT INDIAN FOOD. it’s soooo good! I love it and i eat it almost every day! hahahha
So our school musical’s try outs are far away, but I don’t know what i’m going to sing! All I can sing by heart are bollywood songs and indian prayers……I REALLY want to sing a bollywood song, but I don’t think our theatre department would approve.
well, hopefully i’ll think of a white person song that can fit my extremely indian singing voice….
Ugh, okay. So my good friend just told me this and I was seriously stunned about how mean people can be! I’m so used to Tumblr niceness! Here’s what she told me.
So she was looking at the Rocket Singh music video and she saw someone comment on the video and asked “Is this a Pakistani music video?” and so she decided to be nice and respond to this lost person and said “No, it’s a Hindi movie & music video.”
THEN out of nowhere, this different person says “your a fag it punjabi cant you see the turban”
1. IT’S ‘YOU’RE’ NOT YOUR.
2. “fag” is a terrible word and should not be used at all unless you are talking about a cigarette.
3. IT’S not IT.
4. CAN’T not CANT
5. we all see the turban, irrelevant question.
5a. there should be a ? at the end there, asshole.
But, she responded quite nicely…..she said “it’s still a HINDI movie. they’re speaking HINDI not punjabi and it’s made by a hindi film industry and director. the only thing that is punjabi in this whole movie is ranbir’s character. And that’s really not a nice word so keep it to yourself.”
She handled it very nicely….plus she was right. completely.
People are so arrogant, rude and horrid. I hate it.
and YEES. ugh. i’m like stressing out. I already know where I want to apply ED…..but yeah, it’s just like getting apps in and everything like SATs done……i’m so nervous i won’t get in ANYWHERE. meh!
she HATES indian weddings!? wait…like she hated them and liked the gora weddings?!???? i’ve NEVER heard that before…..may i ask why?!
and she HAS to get married desi style…..like…….IS SHE ASHAMED OF BEING INDIAN!? meh….sorry that makes me so sad! :(
haha agreed. well certain things…..
haha i watched last night with my sister :D
and yesssss gosh she’s flawless. i absolutely love her acting as well!
Okay, so today I went to a gora wedding, they are very good friends of the family and although it was BEAUTIFUL, it was….i don’t know, boring, bland….MISSING SOMETHING!
I mean, desi weddings are ALL colour and all dancing and yelling and singing and i don’t know, just full of life! Most of the time I was sitting down and so were most of the other people.
I don’t know.
Can someone defend gora weddings?
The only gora weddings I know that are almost the same awesomeness as desi weddings are the greek weddings. THOSE are awesome. :)
hahah, awwwe i’m sure it’s really interesting!! I don’t know many people who are…..and yes. AGREED.
AWWWE that’s so cute!!! I do want to learn french, i just don’t think now in my life is a good time. Maybe while i’m in college….
My name is Sudha! What’s yours?
It’s actually like Home Alone……
AWWE! i LOVE it! ….literally… i loved it. hahaha thank you! great picture yaar!!!
hahaha, yeah, sorry that’s why it’s totally creeper ahha. but thank you! :D
AH! THANKS :D
really?! i love finding that! I love when people tell me that they have a lot in common with me, it gives me so much more to talk about :)
and mmm…I love Mani Ratnam and Prakash Mehra but my alltime favs. are Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar i think……idk there are SO many.
and music director? errr…..like singers? or overall people. I have to say A.R Rahman and I adore Lata Mangeshkar as a singer…..
awwwwe thank you!! it really means a lot to me :) I wish I knew you guys in real life, i think we’d all be such good friends.
btw- this might sound weird, but you’re so pretty!!! I’ve been meaning to tell you haha :)
OOOO! i wanna see! I can’t look through my dash right now—watching supernatural!—send me a link to it? I WANNA SEE! :D
and awwwe well if ya ever want to talk i’m always here to chat!
