Vedi? Vedi? Jillaa?

Haripriya,

This is the time, you tried making some sentences.

Years back, when I was a kid, may be when I was 10 years old, I was traveling to some place in bus with my parents. The bus stopped near hotel where people were taking their coffee. There was one fellow who made some nasty noise while drinking the coffee with the froth. Since then I started to avoid the froth in the coffee. So its my natural behavior to blow away the froth and drink the coffee.

I had a coffee in my hands and you were sitting next to me. The coffee in my hands indeed had froth and I blew it. Looking at me blowing the froth away, you thought that the coffee is hot. You asked "Vedi? Vedi?" meaning "Is it hot?". Well you couldn't make the sentence right, but the expressions on your face made me realize that it is a question. I understood why you asked me this, and I smiled and replied you "Ledu ra", meaning "No buddy". Your spontaneously replied "Jilla?", meaning "Is it cold?"

That was interesting to me. You started learning meanings and opposites. Cool aren't you?
