Clap Clap

Me: Wha..?

Me: (nervously) Ha ha maaf karo maaf karo.
Rosy: Arre kai ko maaf karna hai re, lamba saal jiyega, gaadi bangla rakhega re tu, chal, mummy ko kuch de de na.
Clap Clap
Me: Nahin mummy maaf kar do. (To friend) Polaama?

Rosy: Ayyo rasaa, Tamil pesuriyaa. Aye Sarasu, Monica, Daally, vaanga dee, raasa tamil pesudhu

Daally: Kudu rasa kudu, nee nalla iruppai, azhagu raasaava iruppai.
Monica: Ippave ivvalavu superaa irukkiye kannu. Indha Monica sonna innum perivana valaruvai chellam.
Rosy: Rajessu, kudra kanna. Naan Rosy kekkuraen illa? Kudu raasa
Me: Aiyyo illai ma (err pa). I dont have any change.
Rosy: (Switching back to Hindi to compensate for my embarrassed English) Toh change kyun deta hai re. Sau rupya de de na Rajes.

Sarasu: Toh 500 de de na mere Sarukh Khan, Salman Khan

Me: Err
Sarasu: Ada po rajesu, ainoorla nalla sandal kooda kadaikkaathu ippa ellaan. Naan pesaveyy maatein unnoda.
Daally: Chalo, tum 500 de do Rajes, main 450 ka chutta deti hoon
Me: Abba ozhinjudhu. Indha ma. Sillarai kudu.
Rosy: Vangikka dee Monica
Slurrpy kiss from Monica
Caress from Sarasu
Two heavy cheek pinches from Daally.

Chorus: Yen Kannnnnu, mavaraaasa, Raaajessu. Nalla iru kannu. Poittuvaren Rajesssu
Me: Err.

The translation (Doesn't quite sound the same, but here goes :)

Clap Clap
Aye Rajeskanna, Rajeskanna, lamba saal jiyega tu. Aao teri jindagi batati mai Rosy.
(In Hindi: Hey Rajesh Khanna, You will live a long life. Come let Rosy tell you about your life)

Me: (nervously) Ha ha maaf karo maaf karo.
(Ha ha forgive me, forgive me- customary respectful blow off for a hijra)

Rosy: Arre kai ko maaf karna hai re, lamba saal jiyega, gaadi bangla rakhega re tu, chal, mummy ko kuch de de na.
(Oh why should I forgive. You will live long, you will have a car and a house. Come now give mummy something)

Clap Clap
Me: Nahin mummy maaf kar do. (To friend) Polaama?
(No mummy, forgive me. (In Tamil to friend) Shall we go?)

Rosy: Ayyo rasaa, Tamil pesuriyaa. Aye Sarasu, Monica, Daally, vaanga dee, raasa tamil pesudhu
(In Tamil: Oh my king, do you speak tamil? Hey Sarasu, Monica, Dolly, come on girls, the king speaks tamil)

Me: Uh oh.
(Chorus of claps)

Sarasu: Adadada yevalavu alaga irukku idhu. Nalla kelu dee, Rajes kannu kuduththudum
(Oh how lovely it looks. Ask it nicely di, it will give you money)


Daally: Kudu rasa kudu, nee nalla iruppai, azhagu raasaava iruppai.
(Give, give my king. You will live long and prosper. You will be a beautiful king)

Monica: Ippave ivvalavu superaa irukkiye kannu. Indha Monica sonna innum perivana valaruvai chellam.
(You look so super already, mine eyes. If this Monica says so, you will become even more famous)

Rosy: Rajessu, kudra kanna. Naan Rosy kekkuraen illa? Kudu raasa
(Rajesh, give it to me my darling. It is I, Rosy, that asks. Give it to me, my king)

Me: Aiyyo illai (no) ma (err pa). I dont have any change.

Rosy: (Switching back to Hindi to compensate for my embarrassed English) Toh change kyun deta hai re. Sau rupya de de na Rajes.
(So why give me change, give me 100 rupees)


Me (idiotically): I dont have 100s. Only 500s

Sarasu: Toh 500 de de na mere Sarukh Khan, Salman Khan
(Then give me 500, my Salman Khan, Sharukh Khan)

Monika: Kuduthudu rasa, nee periya aakitru aaguvai. Yellarum unnaiyeyyyy paaaaathukittirupaanga. Apparam nee indha Monika vai marakka veyyyy maate.
(Back in Tamil: Give it to me my king. You will become a big actor. Everybody will always look at you. You will never forget this Monica after that)

(clap clap)


Me: Ainooraa? Ungalukku 500 kuduthein na naan yenna aaguvain?
(500 bucks??!! What will become of me if I give you 500 bucks!!)

Rosy: Aiyo yen kutti Siranjeevi, ainoorla nee suberstar aaguvai, Kavaskar aaguvai, Tata Pirla aaguvai, Yen kannu kutti chellon aaguvai.
(Oh my little Chiranjeevi. For Rs 500, you will become a superstar, You will become Gavaskar, You will become Tata Birla. You will become my darling sweetie pie.)

Me: Err

Sarasu: Ada po rajesu, ainoorla nalla sandal kooda kadaikkaathu ippa ellaan. Naan pesaveyy maatein unnoda.
(Oh go away Rajesh, you cant even by a decent pair of sandals with Rs 500 these days. I wont talk to you any more)


Daally: Chalo, tum 500 de do Rajes, main 450 ka chutta deti hoon
(Hindi: Oh alright then, give me 500, I will give you 450 change)

Me: Abba ozhinjudhu. Indha ma. Sillarai kudu.
(Tamil: Whew. ok. Here ma, give me the change)

Rosy: Vangikka dee Monica
(Take it di, Monica)

Slurrpy kiss from Monica

Sardonic_Sue said...

HAHA... must say I have had a few Hijra-tic experiences of mine own - some here, some in Delhi.

The Junction near Navrang is a great place to find these people - dressed in their Hijra-tic best calling out to men using names their wives wouldn't use (I wouldn't call my DUDE as "Darling! Chinnu mari! Sexy!" to save my life!In fact, Dude is my term of endearment for him)
So, we were coming back from Mysore late in the evening and, for some obscure reason, I was mighty cold with my DUDE..... We were in an autorickshaw when this really thin (I hate her for it :P), she/he came up to our auto and cooed to the DUDE "Chinnu mari!" and held out a hand. I gave her a look of utmost contempt when she suddenly turned to me and held out her hand similarly to say "Madam!" (I fought down a strong urge to tell her that I don't earn half as much as her 'chinnu mari' does and that she should ask him!)

But one look at her told me she was the REAL THING.... not a man trying to invade into the space of transgender people. Which is perhaps the reason why I was rather tolerant of her, though i HATE HER for being so thin!!!! :P

Dharshan said...

Hijras are so endearing! *wink,wink* Nice blog by the way! I can relate with it!
