SMALL WATER IRRIGATION BOARD What I write would be more tolerable if & only if the reader has reasonable exposure to fluent and chaste Tamil language. It was the time when a new party elected to form govt in the state who were staunch followers of anything and everything in Tamil. They went wild to reflect for their penchant fanaticism for tamil by rewriting or renaming all government related name boards, street and station names , name of offices’ boards, bus route name boards etc. A ministry was in vogue to look after the small water irrigation and it was named in English ad SMALL WATER IRRIGATION BOARD. The new minister with his penchant for tamil translated into Tamil and the new semi circular large name board written in bright white paint in azure back drop installed at the entrance the office premises that lead to their ministry in the secretariat. Bystanders and visitors were in awe laughing and discussing gazing at the text in arch-board. I too from a distance saw the milling crowd having laughter at the entrance. When curiosity got better of me, I went in closer proximity - read the new name board that was erected over the tall pillars above the entrance . After reading it in one glance, I too joined the gathering in their great guffaw. When I attempted to narrate this to others at home, My thought process heavily disrupted that I could hardly form and complete a sentence as intermittent laugh begin to raise deep from my rib-cage that produced heavy tears blurring my vision and almost caused a catch in ribs. In the freshly painted name board - it was written in Tamil - in bold white paint in azure blue background: சிறுநீர் பாசன குழு that is transliterated as Siruneerpasana kuzhu Siruneer in chaste tamil means URINE. PASANA means irrigation. KUZHU means board of members.
