Hobson-Jobson: The words English owes to India

I found this BBC article on Indian words in English absolutely fascinating as well as a bit eccentric. I like it that, some words are pretty mainstream and some are not in use today and some too unbelievable at first!

This trivia is not related to Emacs in any way.

Whatever we try, sometimes some things just happen to not be related to Emacs. It's always a weird feeling, I know. :)
