42932Re: [SUMADHWASEVA] Discontinue usage of word "Mutt"
- Oct 15, 2017Namaskara -MUTT clearly indicates a holy place where Brahmins get together for performance of a common objective. If MUTT has different meanings in other languages, it is not the problem of Sanskrit. Since it makes sense to write mutt has MUTT, it should be. We cannot keep changing our words, or their spelling because, it means something else in other languages. MATHA basically means ಮಠಾ , which is wrong as it should be ಮಠ (Muth or MUTT. both are valid).Kiss in Swedish language means to pee, Barf means ice in Hindi, but means Vomit or vomited food in English. No one in Hindi has discontinued this word because it is weird in English.Letz not bother what MUTT or MUTH means in other languages. It means to us a great place! This is my sincere opinion.
