The Puneri Lingo- III

Ok people. The third installment of Puneri Lingo is out. As a recap, Id like to tell you that our very own Zampya broke up with his ex girlfriend in Puneri Lingo 2, and managed to some how end up with a khavatt girl called Fergusson vaali. His friend Punekar tries to get zampya out of the way, realizes his mistake and steps out. Fergusson vaali now plays a significant part in our following discussion. Most of the discussions in this part are about Zampya but between his friends Punekar 1 and Punekar 2. Punekar1 is trying to get fergusson vaali to set him up with a friend of hers, called as cummins vaali. From all these facts ,you can try to find out what colleges each of our characters are in! More about them will be revealed in the next installments of this article! A new trend has been adopted as per the advice of few people, who told to include the Devnagri version of the word, so as to help with pronunciation. 

On a serious note, the 1st part of this article has been thoroughly plagiarized and now has been circulated as a Whatsapp message. I have serious issues against the individuals who do this without taking my permissions. You are free to use the words as and when you want. I do not own them, but if you want to glorify yourself and hog the limelight by stealing and passing off Zampya, Fergusson vaali, Punekar 1 and Punekar 2 and now cummins vaali as your own creations, then all I can say is that it shows the total lack of creativity you possess. As I say time and again, You can Share what Ive written over here, by sharing the link to the blog itself. Do not try to pass off any of my articles as your creations. Consequences will be severe, and may range from social networking bahishkar or spamming your inbox/walls with apamaan to legal notice.
