One thing which troubles me most is that I am in a State different from my home State, resulting in a language spoken at home very alien to the language used in the markets. Worse still, English - the lingua franca of the Internet, is foreign to both these languages. While managing simple conversation in any of these three languages is not a difficult task, what is painful is deciphering the names of vegetables, spices and grains.
Bhinda is Lady's Finger in Gujarati. It is Vendakkai in Tamil.
Thanks to Wikipedia, I discovered http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multilingual_list_of_Indian_Vegetables,_spices_%26_grains which contains a very nice and well-presented reference for the names of Vegetables in Indian languages.
