Standard

the other day someone said: landa bauld and said as if to explain-a bull without a tail..why is it called landa when it has no tail? is it because it is now exposed in its nakedness?
why is the script Landa called that? is it because it had no lines overhead of its characters, the way ,say Hindi has?Or Sanskrit?
Is it what landa means when used casually for lots of things to explain their exposedness/loneliness for eg landa chirra,landa bazaar..

  1. If we do not attach any negative meaning warranted by historical facts,the usage landa may be accepted as normal. To diffrenciate and distingush such remarks are coined. May be the naked part also some relavance.

    • Today i saw a usage of landa in marathi. There it is used by bal thackeray to mean shortened,cut ie sunnat. Which may mean that the scrpt is from a muslim area or perhaps sunnat existed before islam?
