Bromley North or Bromley South BR? I believe a night bus makes it way back into London from those parts... ;)
Since I  can drive up to four others from one end of Bromley to the other at zero inconvenience, it doesn't really matter which part it is in !

At the moment only two have expressed an interest; I would suggest we aim for four if possible.

Me too, i.e. I hate the word 'garabi'

It's strange that if you search for garabi on any well-known search engines, nothing comes up relating to India/curries/gravy etc. So I'm with George - I hate it for the pretentious attempt to look clever that it is. I would ban the word from this forum and make a poll if I was allowed :)

Hi guys

The word garabi used by them, they are actually trying to say 'gravy' but Indians etc have a difficulty pronouncing the letter V as V does not exist in their language, so they pronounce it lazily as a B

hence garabi!
WHAT WORKS FOR ONE PERSON MAY NOT NECESSARILY WORK FOR ANOTHER, ITS A BIT LIKE  DOGS EATING SHITE, ITS ALL A QUESTION OF TASTE

That's a bit over-simplified, and "they/them" are Bengali speakers rather than the whole of the sub-continent, but basically Artist Paul is correct -- See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bengali_phonology#Consonant_clusters for a good explanation of this phenomenon.

My old boss was from Deli, And he pronounced his "V" as a "W" as in Winegar instead of Vinegar. ;D

That begs the question why members on here, who, assumedly, have the letter 'v' in their vocabulary, refer to it as garabi, rather than the intended word, gravy?

Great to have a more in depth explanation but comments could be misunderstood as being a little condescending, intentional or not  ::)
So singe baby singe, the curry's getting better ..........
