    machi…. for rest i think its similar to kalaippa—- …
    i think the dashes can be filled with adal, odal..or somthhing similar…. this is the closest i cud..find…
    for risk ..i am still thinking…

    anyway… machi.. i have been reading ur blog for while now..(probably a month r two…)
    i read badri’s, military’s..and urs..but i dont know y tht badri bugger is not updatin his…
    anyway… nice to be in touch…tc

  5. Rest – Oyvu

    badri Abhaayam means danger da .. a risk is different from danger ….

    daii inga thamizhlaye kandupidikka mudiyala .. idhula enna hindi unakku

  6. Tamizhan says:

    Rest – Oyvu..hmm super da miltry. But risk is not that easy i guess…And yeah abhaayam does mean danger, badri.

    Dei Suman B****, uyiroda thaan irukiya. Soundaye kaanum? Onnoda answer thappu. Kalaippu is “being tired” not rest!

  7. suman says:

    hey machi…. kalaippu + something else means rest….
    but yeah definitely oyvu is a better word……

  8. dei……mail me your number da…. i need to talk to u soon

  9. Wicked Angel says:

    Agree with saravana kumar, abhaayam is danger not risk. The closest I could think of and I think said this in ioiio’s post as well is panayam.

  10. Rest – Oyvu

    Risk – Kuruttu Muyarchi 😉

  11. Tamizhan says:

    @ Uma, Panayam is good in the life risking context. But if you think abt it in other contexts..e.g. financial, it doesnt fit too well…

    @ Anon, Who are you? 😀

  12. machi most places I think people use vambu for a risk .. like “en indha vambu”

    but I know vambu has a different meaning

    ‘PaNayam’ endRum sollalaam…
