ಒಡನಾಡಿ

Few days back, one of my ಸಹೋದ್ಯೋಗೀಸ್ and I were discussing leisurely about the terms associated with friendship.

In the middle of this discussion, a word creeped up, ಒಡನಾಡಿ(oḍanaaḍi). In Kannada, ಒಡಂ is root for two meanings.

1. union, togetherness.
2. as soon as, immediately. (ಒಡನೆ = ಕೂಡಲೆ = ತಕ್ಷಣ)

Since, a friend will be at our end as soon as we need them, we thought ಒಡನಾಡಿ is a apt word that could be used to refer to a BEST FRIEND.

ಕೊಕೊ – ಒಡಲು refers to mother’s womb signifying the baby’s union with the mother.
