    a paki brain cant think any good out of this,,no matter ur country and mind is doomed..
    This inclusion of word signifies the popularity,impact south Indian guies have in western countries ..
    Rasgulla is already in it.. and i bet they have "Jihad " too included .. which signifies ur contribution to the world..

    No, the next will be the dictionaries if Hindi and other Indian Languages in UN dictionary. Along with English, French, Arabian and Chinese; very soon Hindi too will be an official language of United Nations.:first:

    Aiya and Aiyo are Chinese exclamations, usually of surprise, or sometimes disappointment, or regret subject to situations.

    That's here in India too; specially in south. Plus India is even older.

    wow!! i never thought there is any connection between chinese lang and indian lang.. i use to think the lang in these two countries evolved independently...

    i bet trade has to do with this similarity ..

    Interesting.

    Here's another one I noticed: 'ni' means "you" in Tamil/Malayalam (probably in Telugu and Kannada too; ie in the Dravidian languages), just like in many of the Chinese languages.

    It is quite possible that these words spread from India to China during ancient or medieval period because
    of trade. For example the Chola Dynasty established intensive trade relations with the Song Dynasty of China
    in the 11th century

    Sure trade was there between South part of Indian subcontinent and various parts of the world, east & west, but I don't think these words have spread through trade. Words spread through trade are usually product-specific words.
    Most probably the above two examples developed independently and sound the same by coincidence. Less likely option is that they are remnants of an early proto-language (several thousand years back.)
