Train pearl

when some one delivers some very note worthy comment or view, in tamil we say "muthu uthirthar" meaning, he just delivered (or spilled) a pearl!

I was travelling by a day train back from CBE the other day and as usual u strike a conversation..so a bunch of us got together and were talking about the biiig scandals and biig loots by politicos..
Its then, I said the obvious- WTF will these guys do with 1000s of crores,eh? Is money everything? What if there is no water, no good air or even food for their next gen?

Am sure we all have wondered something like this and immly guys we are talking wud nod and obviously support this..
But for once a guy next to me differed..
And he mouthed something very funny and meaningful I heard in a long time..
He said that in chaste Coimbatore tamil..man! that was fundu..
He said ” if theres no water its u, me, our sons who will suffer. These guys will buy water from japan or Japan itself, send them across in huge ships all the way here and prolly bath in Japanese mineral water..so their 1000s of crores helps..so never again wonder what these K* will do with money”
Phew..i was out for a few mins..1st time some one mouthed something different for the original question.

Note: man, all this came in chaste CBE tamil and with equally interesting gaalis..one of the best, unparalleled tamil gaali is K* in CBE tamil IMO. It cant be transliterated to English..what a pity..its mouthed with a big stress and typical sing song and many times in a very rhyming manner, u hardly notice it’s a gaali.
