If there were Gaali-Oscars, the "humble and ubiquitous" "saala" would the "Titanic". If there were Gaali-Grammys, "saala" would dominate like Michael Jackson in '83. If there were Gaali-Nobel Pri...ok, I'll stop.
According to Pareshaan, "saala" is a "classic", a "real masterpiece" and he begs us not to "abuse the abuse" by combining it with "other overpowering oaths".
You have my word, comrade!
But why is "saala" considered a profanity? Does anyone in the frickin' sub-continent know? It's the most goddamn important word in our language and not ONE website or blog has even a half-assed explanation of how (and when) this word became a swear word? Just what are Indian linguists, etymologists and word-collectors doing?
