Charming ‘Batti’

Joe Jayasuriya of Negombo writes......

In that immensely popular teledrama "Batti", the heroine is addressed as ‘Bondi" by two characters in the play. Clearly this word is used in a derogatory sense.

However, the meaning of this musical word appears to have changed over the year. According to me Sinhalese-English pocket dictionary compiled by Sirisena Maitipe and published in 1997, the word ‘Bondi’ has been defined as a ‘Charming lady’. However, I think it is more suitable for this charming lady.
