Wierd world of punjabi abuses

The charges of racial abuse against bhajji have been dropped.

From BBC's website

"BBC sports editor Mihir Bose revealed that the Indians claimed Harbhajan had used a Hindi phrase that could be misheard as "big monkey" in English."

Welllllllllllll....that could only be the "phrase" used by Kareena kapoor in "Jab we met" or Rani Mukherji in "Bichchu"

The part that baffles me is Symonds is OK with bhajji abusing his mother but not with being called a monkey (which BTW in India is not a racial abuse. Some of our gods are monkeys for god's sake).

Wierd shit man!

P.S. if you still haven't figured out the PHRASE, please contact your nearest Punjabi for details!

UPDATE: From www.rediff.com (in case you did not know a Punjabi!)

"A viewing of the video shows that people were moving around but certainly Mr Tendulkar appears to have been closest to Mr Singh in the course of the heated exchange we are concerned with. Contrary to reports that Mr Tendulkar heard nothing he told me he heard a heated exchange and wished to calm Mr Singh down. His evidence was that there was swearing between the two. It was initiated by Mr Symonds. That he did not hear the word "monkey" or "big monkey" but he did say he heard Mr Singh use a term in his native tongue "teri maki" which appears to be pronounced with a "n". He said this is a term that sounds like "monkey" and could be misinterpreted for it," a copy of the judgement released by the International Cricket Council said.
