These Turkish Are Crazy

Via my cousin-in-law’s twitter feed, I came across an awesome story of misunderstanding, stupidity, revenge and true love made possible only by the magic of technology.

Update: A helpful comment on the above story tells me that the innocent word in question “s?k???nca” literally means “in a squeeze”. The word reminds me of the Hindi word “shikhanja” which has a similar meaning. It is entirely possible that Hindi borrowed the word from Turkish. In that case, our failure to borrow the other word represents a huge missed opportunity to tackle our population problem.

  1. In the Hindi film version of the story, the man commits suicide because in his heart he still loved her. That is my version and I shall stick to it.
