Here is a list of all the songs in more than one language I have in my music playlist. They’re all linked to their music video. Add yours! :)

I’m interested in the “’chai’ means tea” and “’chai’ is a type of tea, ‘tea’ means tea” divide in languages.

Team Chai:

  • Hindi - चाय (chaay)
  • Urdu - چائے (chai)
  • Arabic - شاي (shay)
  • Turkish - çay
  • Amharic - ሻይ (shayi)
  • Somali - shaah
  • Swahili - chai
  • Bosnian - čaj
  • Russian - чай (chai)
  • Greek - τσάι (tsai)
  • Chinese - 茶 (cha)
  • Thai - ชา (cha)
  • Portuguese - chá

Team Tea:

  • English - tea
  • German - tee
  • Danish - te
  • Dutch - thee
  • Africaans - tee
  • Yoruba - tii
  • Sudanese - téh
  • Hungarian - tea
  • French - thé
  • Italian - tè
  • Spanish - té

Team Neither:

  • Finnish - iltapäiväateria (also uses loanword ‘tee’)
  • Lithuanian - arbata
  • Japanese - お茶 (ocha)
  • Korean appears to use both 차 (cha) and 티 (ti)

My (completely unsupported, unresearched) theory is that Germanic and Romance languages tend toward the “tea” root, and other major language families tend toward “chai” especially languages spoken in largely Islamic areas (Arabic, Turkish, Amharic, Urdu) but there are many examples that break that pattern.

(Native speakers, please correct me! I do not speak these languages, can’t comment on everyday usage, and can only read Roman characters and Cyrillic. Google Translate was used for a large chunk of info.)

@rizahmed: Rest in peace Om Puri. A true giant of cinema, a hero of mine, and one of the most masterfully talented, humble, and warm souls I ever met. Working with him was an honour. I remember seeing him in classic Bollywood films as well as groundbreaking British cinema like ‘My Son the Fanatic’ and ‘East is East’. He transcended cultural boundaries in a way no one else had at that point, bridging the gap I felt in myself, a consistent presence in both Hindi and English films. I once asked him what film he was proudest of, he told me 'Ardh Satya’, where he played an idealistic young cop in a corrupt police force, was one of his first big lead roles and he had a soft spot for it. His charisma shines through from the first frame. In a way Om was like this character, a beacon of warmth in an industry often awash with ego. He was someone who seemed to be doing it for the right reasons, still so humble and cool despite being an icon. He remains an inspiration to so many. Thank you Om-ji, for your incredible gift to us all.

I’m not in the ml fandom bUT @illustraice ‘s Sun/Moon au has me h o o k e d.  Now, I’m no artist so I can’t draw for it (believe me I just tried drawing Mari and I spent more time outlining muscles than anything so that was a lost cause), and because I’m not in the ml fandom and I have no grasp on Mari and Adrien’s characters, I can’t write for it, either.  Buuuuut, given what I’ve read for this AU, I can certainly devise a playlist for it.  Because music is universal.

Dreaming in Gujarati

The children in my dreams
speak in Gujarati
turn their trusting faces to the sun
say to me
care for us nurture us
in my dreams I shudder and I run.

I am six
in a playground of white children
Darkie, sing us an Indian song!
Eight
in a roomful of elders
all mock my broken Gujarati
English girl!

Twelve, I tunnel into books
forge an armor of English words.
Eighteen, shaved head
combat boots -
shamed by masis
in white saris
neon judgments
singe my western head.
Mother tongue.
Matrubhasha
tongue of the mother
I murder in myself.

Through the years I watch Gujarati
swell the swaggering egos of men
mirror them over and over
at twice their natural size.
Through the years
I watch Gujarati dissolve
bones and teeth of women, break them
on anvils of duty and service, burn them
to skeletal ash.
Words that don’t exist in Gujarati:
Self-expression.
Individual.
Lesbian.

English rises in my throat
rapier flashed at yuppie boys
who claim their people “civilized” mine.
Thunderbolt hurled
at cab drivers yelling
Dirty black bastard!
Force-field against teenage hoods
hissing
F****ing Paki bitch!
Their tongue - or mine?
Have I become the enemy?

Listen:
my father speaks Urdu
language of dancing peacocks
rosewater fountains
even its curses are beautiful.
He speaks Hindi
suave and melodic
earthy Punjabi
salty rich as saag paneer
coastal Kiswahili
laced with Arabic,
he speaks Gujarati
solid ancestral pride.
Five languages
five different worlds
yet English
shrinks
him
down
before white men
who think their flat cold spiky words
make the only reality.

Words that don’t exist in English:
Najjar
Garba
Arati.

If we cannot name it
does it exist?
When we lose language
does culture die? What happens
to a tongue of milk-heavy
cows, earthen pots
jingling anklets, temple bells,
when its children
grow up in Silicon Valley
to become
programmers?

Then there’s American:
Kin'uh get some service?
Dontcha have ice?
Not:
May I have please?
Ben, mane madhath karso?
Tafadhali nipe rafiki
Donnez-moi, s'il vous plait
Puedo tener…..
Hello, I said can I get some service?!
Like, where’s the line for Ay-mericans
in this goddamn airport?
Words that atomized two hundred thousand Iraqis:
Didja see how we kicked some major ass in the Gulf?
Lit up Bagdad like the fourth a’ July!
Whupped those sand-niggers into a parking lot!

The children in my dreams speak in Gujarati
bright as butter
succulent cherries
sounds I can paint on the air with my breath
dance through like a Sufi mystic
words I can weep and howl and devour
words I can kiss and taste and dream
this tongue
I take back.

What to do if ICE comes to your door?

Do not open doors! ICE cannot come in without a signed warrant or if you let them in. Tell them to pass the warrant under the door before you open.

Remain silent! ICE can use anything you say against you in your immigration case so claim your right to remain silent! Say “I plead the fifth amendment and choose to remain silent”.

Do not sign! Don’t sign anything ICE gives you without talking to an attorney.

Report the raid! Report immediately to the UWD hotline 1-844.343.1623. Take pictures, video and notes: badge numbers, number of agents, exactly what happened!

Fight back! Get a trustworthy attorney and explore all options to fight your case. If detained, you may be able to get bail. Don’t give up hope!

Spanish tranlation / Traducción al español

En caso de redadas ¿qué puedes hacer?

¡No abras la puerta! Pregúntale a la migra i tienen una orden de arresto y que te la pasen por debajo de la puerta.

¡Guarda silencio! Tiene el derecho a permanecer callado/a. Si te confrontan agentes de inmigración, di: “Uso mi derecho bajo la quinta enmienda, y tengo el derecho a mantenerme callado/a.” Los agentes de inmigración pueden usar cualquier cosa que digas en tu contra en tu caso de inmigración.

¡No firmes! No firmes nada que te den los agentes de inmigración sin hablar con un abogado.

¡Haz un plan y pelea! Sí inmigración detiene a ti o a un ser uerido, busca un  abogado de confianza, y haz planes para que alguien cuide a tus hijos. Tu puedes pelear un caso óde detencin y tal vez recibir una fianza.

French translation. / Traduction française.

Que faire si les agents d'immigration sont à votre porte?

N'ouvrez pas la porte! Les agents d'immigration n'ont pas le droit d'entrer à moins de présenter un mandat. Disez leur de le passer par dessous la porte.

Restez silencieux! Les agents d'immigrations peuvent utilisez tout ce que vous disez contre vous dans votre affaire d'immigration. Vous avez le droit de garder le silence. Dites “Je plaide le cinquième amendement et décide de garder le silence.” (En anglais: “I plead the fifth amendment and choose my right to remain silent”, phonétiquement “Aïe plide de fifz amèned'mente ènd tchouse tou rimèine saïlente.”)

Ne signez rien! Ne signez rien sans parler à un avocat.

Documentez le raid! Informez immédiatement l'organisation “United we Dream” en appelant au numéro suivant: 1-844-343-1623. Faites des photos, filmez et notez tout: les numéros de badges, le nombre d'agents et les évenements exacts.

Défendez vous! Parlez à un avocat de confiance et explorez toutes les possibilités pour défendre votre cas. Si vous êtes détenu, vous pouvez éventuellement être libéré contre caution – ne perdez pas espoir!

Brazilian Portuguese:

URGENTE: se você não tem permissão para estar nos EUA, NÃO abra a porta se um agente do serviço de imigração (ICE) estiver batendo. Não responda a nenhuma pergunta do agente se ele tentar falar com você. Você tem o direito de permanecer calado. Você NÃO tem que dar seu nome ao agente. Se você está no trabalho, pergunte ao agente se está livre pra sair, e se ele disser que sim, SAIA. Você tem direito de falar com um advogado.

HINDI:

आई.सी.ई. आपके घर पर आयें तो क्या करें?

1. दरवाज़ा मत खोलें

आई.सी.ई. बिना साईन की गयी वॉरेंट से आपके घर में घूस नहीं सकते हैं। उनसे कहें कि वॉरेंट दरवाज़े के निचे स्लाइड करके देंगे, इससे पहले कि आप दरवाज़ा खोलें।

2. खामोश रहें

आप जो भी कहें आई.सी.ई. आपके अप्रवासन मुकदमे में आपके खिलाफ़ इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं। अपना खामोश रहने का हक़ ले लें, जो अमेरिकन कानून से आपका है।

यह कहें: “ आई प्लीड द फ़िफ़्थ अमेंड्मेंट एंड चूज़ टू रीमैन साईलेंट ”

3. कुछ साईन मत करें

आई.सी.ई. आपको कुछ भी दें, बिना वकील से बात करते हुए उस पर साईन मत करें।

4. आक्रमन रीपोर्ट करें

एजेंट के बैज के अंक, एजेंट का संख्या, विस्तृत क्या हुआ –  उनका चित्र खींचें, फ़िल्म करें, और लिख दें। ततकाल रीपोर्ट करें। “United, We Dream” का फ़ोन नंबर 1-844-343-1623 है।

5. हार ना मानें

एक भरोसेवाले वकील पाएँ और यह पता करके कि आप अपने मुकदमे के ख़िलाफ़ क्या-क्या कर सकते हैं इसके उपर बात करें।  अगर आप अरेस्ट हो जाएँ, तब भी आपको ज़मानत मिल सकती है। उम्मीद रख लें !

FILIPINO TRANSLATION:

(Mga nilalaman ng litrato, isinalin sa Filipino)

Mga dapat gawin kapag pinuntahan kayo ng ICE

1. Huwag magbukas ng pinto. Hindi puwedeng pumasok ang ICE hangga’t wala silang pirmadong warrant o hindi niyo sila pinapapasok nang kusa. Sabihan niyo sila na ipasok ang warrant sa ilalim ng pintuan bago niyo sila pagbuksan.

2. Huwag magsalita. Puwedeng gamitin ng ICE ang kahit anong sabihin niyo para sa kaso niyo sa immigration. Gamitin ang inyong karapatang manahimik.

Sabihan niyo sila ng: “I plead the fifth amendment and choose to remain silent.”

3. Huwag pumirma. Huwag niyong pirmahan ang kahit anong ibibigay sa inyo ng ICE hangga’t hindi kayo nakakakonsulta ng abogado.

4. Isumbong ang raid! Tawagan niyo agad ang United We Dream hotline: 1-844-343-1623. Kumuha kayo ng mga litrato at video, at alalahanin ang lahat ng detalye: badge numbers (numero sa mga tsapa), bilang ng mga ahente ng ICE, at ang eksaktong pangyayari.

5. Lumaban! Kumuha kayo ng mapagkakatiwalaang abogado at pag-aralan ang lahat ng puwedeng paraan para ilaban ang inyong kaso. Kapag ipinakulong kayo, maaari pa kayong maka-piyansa. Huwag mawalan ng pag-asa!

Italian (non-native) Translation:

Cose si deve fare in caso d’irruzione di ICE:

Non aprite la porta.

ICE non ha il diritto di entrare il vostro appartamento senza un mandato firmato (da un magistrato) e senza che voi date l’autorizzazione. Gli chiedete di infilare il mandato sotto la porta prima di aprirla.

Rimanete in silenzio. 

ICE puo usare tutto che dite contro voi nel vostro processo d’immigrazione allora affermate il vostro diritto a rimanere in silenzio. Dite: “Uso il mio diritto secondo il quinto emendamento e sceglio di stare zitto.”

Non firmate niente. 

Non firmate niente che ICE vi da senza parlare con un avvocato. 

Fate un rapporto. 

Per fare un rapporto immediato: numero verde dell’UWD: 1-844-343-1623. Fare foto e video e prendete appunti: numeri di insegne, il numero di agenti, essatamente che cosa è successo.

Rispondete! 

Trovate un avvocato affidabile e esaminare tutte le possibilità per il vostro processo. Se siete incarcerato, qualcuno vi portrebbe pagare la cauzione - non perdete la speranza!

اگر ماموران ICE به خانه شنا سر زدند:

۱. در را باز نکنید. ماموران ICEنمیتوانند بدون حکم جلب امضا شده یا اجازه شما وارد خانه شما شوند. از آنها درخواست کنید حکم جلب را از زیر در به شما نشان بدهند. ۲. ساکت بمانید. آنها میتوانند هر چیزی که شما میگویید را علیه شنا استفاده کنند پس از حق سکوت خود استفاده کنید.  I plead the fifth ammendment and choose to remain silent. من از حق بند پنجم ان استفاده میکنم و بدون حضور وکیل صحبت نمیکنم. ۳.امضا نکنید. هیچ چیزی را بدون مشاوره با وکیل خود امضا نکنید. ۴. گزارش بدهید. بلافاصله با شماره۱۸۴۴۳۴۳۱۶۲۳ تماس بگیرید و حتما عکس, فیلم, یادداشت های مربوطه و شماره شناسایی ماموران حاضر را نگه دارید. ۵. از حق خود دفاع کنید. یک وکیل خوب استخدام کنید و به تمام گزینه ها فکر کنید. حتی اگر شما دستگیر شوید امکان ضمانت و آزادی موقت وجود دارد.

Chinese (not sure if Mandarin or Cantonese):

ICE掃蕩指引

當ICE來到你家門前你需要做的事

前請勿開門予ICE人員進門

在沒有法庭手令或被"主動開門迎接"的情況下他們是不可以隨便進入你的住所, 請要求他們在門口下方把手令插入來給你過目.

保持諴默

ICE可以把你說過的任何說話帶上法庭並以此作為對你的移民官司的指控證據之一, 所以請行使你的諴默權. 請說: “I plead the fifth amendment and choose to remian silence” 以表示你行使你保持諴默的法定權利

不要簽署文件

在沒有律師在場的情況下請勿簽署ICE給你的任何文件

舉報是次掃蕩

立即舉報給UWD (他們的熱線電話是1-844-343-1623) 並拍照/拍影片/紀錄ICE人員的人員編號/人數/以及發生了甚麼事

反抗

找一個可信任的律師去替你在移民官司中辯護並尋求一切可抵抗的辦法. 如果你被扣留, 你仍然有機會被保釋, 所以請勿放棄!

Hal Yang Harus Dilakukan Bila ICE Datang to Rumahmu

Jangan Membukai Pintu

ICE tidak boleh masuk ke rumahmu tanpa surat izin tertulis, atau bila anda membolehkan mereka masuk.

Tetap Diam

ICE memiliki kekuatan until memakai kata-kata anda untuk melawan pengadilan imigrasimu, jadi tuntutkan hak untuk tetap diam.

*mengatakan “I plead the fifth amendment and choose to remain silent”.

Jangan Menandatangani Apapun

Jangan menandatangani apapun yang diberi oleh ICE sebelum membicara dengan pengacara.

Melaporkan penyerbuannya

Segera di laporkan: UWD hotline 1-844-343-1623

Mengambil foto, video dan rekaman lainnya seperti nomor lencana, seberapa banyak agen yang dating, and apa yang persisnya terjadi.

Melawan balik!

Mencari pengacara yang andal dan menjelajah semua opsi until melawan kasus anda. Jika di tahan, anda masih bisa dikeluarkan- jangan putus asa!
