I voted for the first time ever today in the Lok Sabha General Elections from Pune. :-)

My finger was 'inked' to indicate that I'd voted.

Modi / BJP have interesting online ads... 0_0

I first thought: Huh? How did one of those irritating "antivirus" ads get mixed up with a #Modi4PM ad?

Lost...and Gained in Translation

"What if the translator chose to capture every originality and turn of phrase and onomatopoeic word when rendering a text into English? The words and the grammar might still pass the OED or the Wren-and-Martin test, but wouldn’t the final version be a mongrel without any literary integrity, the classic washerman’s ass, belonging neither to the home nor to the steps leading down to the river? (That didn’t sound so good in translation, did it?)

I'm not sure why the author thinks that the 'work would be without any literary integrity' - whatever that means. If it means not using any words that are not in the target language's dictionary, that's ridiculous. I don't think there's any way you could convey the nuances of another culture to the reader without using their words. Plus, languages absorb words from other languages due to cultural, political and other influences.

*I actually like it when books introduce the actual words/phrases from the native language (the original language in case of a work translation, or of the culture depicted in the story ) to the reader (with the meaning as a footnote. Or, included cleverly in the text as a dialogue - perhaps between a tourist/disciple and a tour guide/guru ).*
