We all know the letter 'c' is pronounced as "k" in 'cat' or 's' as in 'chaperone'.

Noncompoo - Ni - kamma

Noncompoo - Incompetent

Ni-Kamma or Ni-Camma (which gets corrupted as Ni-Comma and then Ni-Compa), means someone who undertakes work in Sanskrit. But in Urdu it means Useless or Incompetent person. Here it is a good example where the word has taken an opposite meaning, a pattern often found and shown here.

Soprano - su+pranaaH, Sonata - su+naataaH

Soprano - su-praanaaH (of or from good praanaah or breath)

A good singer. Who else can have a good singing, besides being naturally gifted with a beautiful voice, trained in music or born with an ear for music, and having a good breadth control.

Sonata - su-naatah (good bow, saluations, acknowledgement, surrender of self ego to someone's superiority of ego).

A poem in praise of someone. The Sanskrit word, Namaste - NamaaH + Te (I bow to you, or I salute you) has the same principle.

Sophist - su-paa-iST

Sophist are Spiritual Seekers. The Indian Monks who were wandering in search of their quest and leading a life of Mendicents, were called by Greeks, Gymno Sophists.

Actually it is "gyaan su-paa-iST".

su - prefix for good
paa - root for "to obtain"
iST - faith, God desired, best desire (what else can be the best but the God Principle, and hence it is also used in Superlative as suffix and carried forward in English as "est" - the other is the suffix for Comparative - 'er').

This rule is also noted in the word "ish var" - the best chosen and epithet for God.

The Sanskrit for bridegroom is "var" - whom else would you choose as your partner? The best person correct? And in some traditions and metaphoric expressions, God is the best partner.

It is said, Aristole, Plato, Socrates, Pythogorus, and countless many Philopshers and Seekers visited India. It is mentioned in the book by William Durant, called, "Our Oriental Inheritage".

Have you wondered why Pythogorus Theorem is in the Vedangas? It is a well known Western Academia accepted fact that it was taken from the East.

The Urdu word "su-paa-hi" is also connected and it means "soldier" or "good catcher".

Etymology of word Raakesh, Rogue, Rock


A lot of times in the email thread people would write "Raakhesh", and my mind would be spinning with many variations of the word and I would read "RaakShesh". ;-)

Overtime I saw some interesting co-relations.

Hindi/Urdu/Sanskrit Words

raakh - ashes - it is same as in Sanskrit raak-H (visarga), where k and kh are sounds next to each other.

raug - sick

raakSas - demon

rakS - to protect against demons,

rakSas - warlike, demonic like,

raakesh - name of Shiva - raakSa + ish - demon - lord , the one who is smeared in ashes or 'raakh', the destroyer and protector (one destorys one side and protects the other side).

Shiva is the most ancient god of the civilizations of the world, and has prototypes in Europe, Denmark, and feindish variations of wine drinking, meat eating, and sexual revelary go back to Tantrism and Forest Dwelling. Interestingly he is the God of Demons and depicted with Dark Skin - an epithet used the White Aryan influx people, who also adapted him as their Lord. Note the place of Kashi in UP (oldest living city of the World and place of Shiva) and Kashghar - or Kashi-ghad (in Tashuria or Xi-Xiang).


rock - a volcanic ash turns into Rock.

rogue - sick

Eadam Mutato ResurGo - Even After Death, I Shall Resurface

Other Greek/Latin Expressions:


The tomb of Bernoulli was inscribed as per his request: Eadam Mutato Resurgo.

What the classical translation says: I shall arise the same, though changed.

It is said Greek and Sanskrit are sisters. And Latin is the child of Greek. But actually Greek is also a child of Sanskrit - as it is shown by the population density vector, materialism vs spiritualism vector, modernity vs ancient-city vector, DNA migration, and so on.

In Sanskrit I would say: etam (idam) mRitatah (martah/mirtah) Srisurgah.

etam -Objective of Singular Pronoun that

ideam - thus

mRi-ta-tah(s) - In Sanskrit the Visarga (Hard Aspirate) can become "ah", "s" and "o" forms but Greek and Latin stick to "o" forms. There is one rule were "tah" is used to make nouns as adverbs. "mRi" is to die - and making it Present or Past Participle, it would take forms of "mRita", and "marta". Like Die-ing-ly, where 'ing' is part of the noun/adjective participle, and "ly" is the adverb part.

RiSurgah - sRi - means to slither or to move or appear. As periphestic future, or past, one needs to repeat the initial syllable, and sometimes two syllables, in some cases, like "sRi", and then drop the "s" part. So it becomes "ri-Sri" but then "ri" becomes "ir" or "ur". The hard part is over. "gaah" means "going" Something that shall be reappearing.

What is means: Thus dyingly I resurface!

Like all Greek and Italian Philosophers, they had close connection with the Orient, the East of Egypt, Persian, and India. It was part of the Reincarnation or Recycle principle.

Spira mirabilis is what Bernoulli called. Note the word "spira" are connected with "sirp" - snake as it also coils - like the spirals. This kind of equal angular and logarithmic spiral, would create its own fractals or mirror/scaled/rotated images. This is the reason he loved and discovered this Spiral and this is one of fundamental properties of nature seen in Physics and Biological Sciences. Someday I will explain how this also enables plants and animals see the "outer world"!

Nikitaa - NiKhitaa

Nikitaa = ni/nii + kit + aa = undertake/lead to + what is to be known + feminine form suffix = one who is close/quest of what is to be known, which is God. This is in Active Sense. In Passive Sense, it is an epithet for God.

NiKhitaa = ni/nii + kh + it + aa = undertake/lead to + space/divide + past passive participle/present active participle + feminine = one that has been divided up = earth or conquered as passive or one who has conquered/become victorious.

Needless to say both are related. ;-
