লমবা ছুতি – long holiday

তোমার লম্বা ছুটি আছে? (tomar lōmba chuti ache?) my father-in-law asked me on Boxing Day.

The expression লম্বা ছুটি was new to me and one he explained was a Bengali colloquialism for a ‘long holiday’.

As a conflation of লমবা and ছুতি it makes perfect sense. But my response of, A-ha, from লমবা for ‘tall’, was met with a blank look (though that may well be down to my pronunciation – or my choice of tall rather than long).

দুরভোগ্যবশতঃ আমার লম্বা ছুটি নেই – আমি ছয়ের জানুয়ারীএ আপিসে ফিরে আসবনা, দ্বিতীয় জানুয়ারীএ ফিরে আসব ।

N.B.

লমবা (lōmba) – adj long, tall, lengthy

ছুতি (chuti) – adj holiday
