It’s not tehari, it’s tuhoor: Bangla Institute chief
Bangla Institute Chief Sohan Gazi Tanks today declared that it's tuhoor, not tehari.
The announcement was made at an official press conference called virtually by the institute right after iftar where the chief made the declaration.
"It's 2021. Covid is somehow worse than last year, and I don't know why we are still having this debate," said Sohan Gazi Tanks, adding, "as long as I am alive, I will never let the language be hijacked by miscreants of foreign lands. It was suhoor and it is tuhoor, and you will all receive a gazette notification tomorrow about it. Rana, tuhoor baira de (Rana, serve the tuhoor)," said the institute chief.
Sohan Gazi Gazi Tanks also stated that changing the word into tuhoor had been one of the biggest successes for the shop that sell jalebis beside the institute premises and it was a sign of a language adapting to modern, cooler times. "We are working to get more words sorted within our dictionary -- nuhoor for nehari, anoor for anari, nupur for nepali…oh wait nupur is already a word!"
