Heard beautiful things recently—
Jaime’s Song by Sylvan Esso (English):
Satyamev Jayate Water Cup Anthem Song by Ajay-Atul and Guru Thakur (Marathi):
Pakistan Air Force National Songs by the late Junaid Jamshed (Urdu):
electoral college, how electoral votes work, how the electoral college works, problems with the electoral college method, what are electoral votes, what are electors, why the electoral college is troubling
And 14 years later the Electoral College makes sense. Well, except that it doesn’t make sense.
My aunt taught me the word zer-e-aab yesterday. She asked me if I knew what it meant and gave me a context sentence about houses becoming zer-e-aab in the flood.
I said I knew ‘aab’ means water. Then she said to think about Urdu punctuation marks—where is the zer? I remembered it’s the one under the letters.
Zer-e-aab = underwater.
Urdu, so pretty. 🙂
