Etymologically : “Peccavi” ( Latin : Feeling of Guilt : Literally : ” I have sinned ” )
Last night was the blog on the Cherokee chant “KA-NU-GA” & its possible link to the Kanuga ancestry
Let’s now shift focus to the other part of “SINDHI KANUGA” : namely Sindh
10 minutes off the M40 in Oxfordshire is an elegant pub unusually called “THE Sir Charles Napier” , named after an illustrious son of a village thereabouts , who , as a Major General in the British Indian Army was deployed in 1842 to the province of Sindh ( phonetically spelt “SIND” in the British lexicon ) to quell an insurrection of Sindh’s Muslim rulers. Following victory in a gruesome Battle in Hyderabad Sindh against the Sindhi General Hoshu Sheedi ( literally translated : Hoshu the Black ) Sir Charles successfully annexed the province of Sindh to the then British bastion Bombay Presidency . Legend has it that Sir Charles Napier , then 60 , was so overcome by remorse at the barbarity in the battle of Hyderabad that his cabled despatch to the British Monarch Queen Victoria contained only one word : you guessed right : “PECCAVI” : decrypted by the Court clerk correctly as ” I HAVE SINNED ” & at the same time gleefully heard & understood by Her Majesty as ” I HAVE ( province ) SIND” ( Don’t we all often hear what we want to hear & etymology be d****d !!
Cheers & GN & be good till the next post tomorrow.
