What a shame. Why did the watchman not clarify who is calling and what is the matter? Don't know basic Kannada staying in karnataka? Looks like security/admin dept in Mlore has gone to the dogs
Although the efforts being made by some authorities to wipe out memories of the colonial past by renaming cities and towns are laudable, it would be difficult for the contemporary generation to forget its immediate past. However, it would be appreciable if the new names chosen are easier to pronounce and not tongue-twisters. Long live India, sorry Hindustan, or is it Bharat?
Instead of closing the case with a good laugh police still want to pursue it! What a waste of time..
I Like the name 'BOMBAY' Instead of Mumbai,Most of the south canera people pronouncing as Bombay even famous cricketer sunil gavaskar said many times in his commentary as bombay, this is the peoples practice nothing wrong in calling Bombay.
Dear Mumbaikar and JN Bejai,"Housemaid said nothing wrong". My dear the name of the city was wrong It is MUMBAI not BOMBAI anymore. You cannot call LONDON as BRANDON and NEWYORK as Nerolack - That is why words should be pronounced in a proper way. English should be learnt and spoken in a proper way, not the way you want. Don't think that the Housemaid is poor she could be very rich also.I knew a person who washes Toilets but drives a Mercedes an speaks excellent English. Now please tell whether he is a poor man and uneducated?The ball is in your court.
Still international code for Mumbai 'BOM'Check with any travel agent.If they put 'MUM' it will go to Mumbasa - Dar-e-salam!!!.Bombay mills still called Bombay mills like Bombay Dying, Bombay chowpaty still called former name only.Chennai still people called as 'Madras' and Kolkotta as Calcutta.It is not so easy to educate people even they are qualified.You must have seen people drinking water by spoons from finger-bowl in star hotels after adding some sugar in it since there is a small lime piece.There is no law to punish some pronounce wrong or call in a previous name which was exist in practice for centuries.Chatrapathi station still people call as VT which is easy for them to call.Bandra is actually in Marathi 'Vandre' have you heard any body calling it?
In the same lighter note....If you do have a friend whose name is JACK and you meet him on an airplane, NEVER say HI to him to create similar comedy of errors!!
Finally they got a break amidst the hard work that their employer puts them through.
They should prove themselves in the right way.
A Mock Drill for cops and bomb squads. Thanks to the lady who called and the man who received the call. CopS SHOULD BE READY DO HANDLE ANY EMERGENCY SITUATIONS. HOW WELL THE ISSUE WAS HANDLED IS THEIR SUCCESS AND ABILITY.
caller:-hello..hello... bombey athe.receiver: bomba!!! matherla laki balpipule... bomb deetherge... ayyo amma.... ha ha ha it seems ridiculous. But when real incident come into picture, oh my God... beware of mock up calls and be patient forever...
The Lady should be punished for saying Bombai instead of Mumbai as the name of the city has changed a decade ago. The city name was changed by Marathi speaking community to be "Amchi Mumbai" cos they knew lot of Tulu speaking people are in Mumbai and the previous name of Bombay definitely leads to Bomb hai Bai, Bomb hai.
Dr,lancy,Are you a medical doctor or animal doctor ?No person in his right mind will want to punish a poor uneducated housemaid for saying Bombay instead of Mumbai ( a recent change )Looks like you are DR.KERPAY IN TULU
lol.. So true
Dear Mumbaikar,How u know the lady is poor. Any one can work has a housemaid though they are poor or rich. The designation has got nothing to do with their personal wealth. Please analyse this. It is none of your business what kind of Dr. I am You dont question my authority.
Think your conscience.How many 'DISAGREE's you accumulated so far.Those who believe need no explanation.Those who don't there is no explanation.(House maid never said anything wrong she said 'Bombay' ENT treatment required who attended the phone call)If one says apple and other end person assumes as Orange then decide who is wrong and who should punished.
This is a very good mock drill to the security officials at infosys m,lore...This drill will help them in future if there are such real threats.
I guess a hoax or a misunderstanding will have the same important words "bomb hai".Glad to see the cops do a thorough check owing to importance given to human lives.Unavoidable incident..
Yeh Bomb-hai meri jaan!
Mr. Hannan soon after informing the police department about BOMB-AY might have felt that he will be called for a press conference to gather more details about the call etc etc...He should be confident by now that he will be called as a judge for Mangalore's Bale Telipale.
Most of the People in interior Karnataka and other parts of South India think that Mangalore has become hub of terrorist activities and not fit for ordinary people to live. Especially after the arrest of Yasin Bhatkal this belief is more pronounced. When people always live in such a fear, the mistake in hearing is just natural.
A good exercise/mock drill for the cops!!
Thank God it was safe & the employees were back at work... But my question is , I could understand the employees were evacuated, but in such a serious unknown situation, there were CHILDREN around and other onlookers. Can they not know about the seriousness of the situation ?? Do they need somebody to tell them or don't they use thier noodles??
Guess....the grt Narayanmurthy sir is also happy with the ending tragedy news...hahaha.

Mr.Kotiprasad Alva became world famous over night, he should give atleast some extra bonus this month to his 'Bomb hai' maid..
Im A Canine Expert & by Looking at the Dog I can Confirm What Breed it is ... & one in the picture is not a Pure Labrador retriever..... One more Scam for sure Lets Call it CBS ... Cross breed Scam )... More over who is goin to ask or en-quire what breed it is... A Safe Scam

Ha ha weekend special joke for all MANGALOREANS who working in Arab countries
Ha ha ha ... cant stop laughing..... Bombay Bombay became Bomb Hai then next Delhi means what Calcutta will become KAR CUTTA.... Bashe barpuji aanda baari bangaaa ye.... Reminds me the days when we used to mix MADRASCALCUTTA and then divide it into 3.
Nice police activities. Other day for Gas leak Today for bomb hai. Hope when real problems comes, it will not ignored as JOKE. Just remembered a joke, Ranga wasTraveling First Time In Plane Going To Bombay, While Landing,he shouted with exitement: “Bombay-Bombay” Air Hostess shouted "be-Silent Please". Ranga continued “Ombay – Ombay“
1.Good mock drill..Mangalore is ready for any challenge..2.Infosys employee will now get SPECIAL cover..3.Now owner came to know that maid was using telephone in his absence..!!4.This joke reminds me another joke..One Malayali Professor was mentioning about Hanumanta's Lanka journey..He said in the class room " When Hanumanta entered LANGA..Raavana became angry.." Most of the keralites use "GA" in place of "KA"..
TULU SPOKEN ON PHONE HEARD BY MALYALEETHINKS IT IS HINDI......WHO IS PAYING THE DAMAGES .5 man bomb disposal squad.3 sniffer dogs3dog trainers7 inspectors20 police 3 police vans2ambulances500 phone calls Lunch / tea for allBiscuits / dog foodEtch etc
No problem. After long time bomb squad got some work. It is like drill.
“Hats off” to Daijiworld...Sometimes you should entertained us by writing this type of Joke’s…Bombay …..Bomb hai…Good evacuation Mock Drill ….Give promotion to that Receptionist…
All respect to the Police for doing their job, but I Just cant stop laughing. What a way to end the day.
In Mangalore no suitable candidate is available for that Job? Why they appointed Keralite?
Poor bomb sniffing dog does not look happy with these bloody joke of humans.....Jai Hoooooooooooo doggie....you are always better than these so called "humans"....as usual my vote is for you....not for humans.......JH...
It is like 'Narial Pani' in Udupi restaurant menu .
Blunder out of nothing....Now the maid will be sent to Bombay (Bomb Hai) and Infosys Employee (Hannan) will be sent back to Kerala.
LOL...cant control my laughs in the office. at least maid and Hannan kept police busy today and spoiled their afternoon sleep.
M tired of laughing ..reading the article n mind blowing comments ...really a good joke
The only IT giant in Mangalore. Never used to miss the glimpse of it whenever used to pass through the road.
Please appoint local as receptionist.
clean chit to siddu
It happened like a mock drill without advance information. However, we have to appreciate the district authorities for proper readiness to handle the situation and find out the route cause.Hats off....:-)
Well said Mr. Yathish
Nice joke,... :) ^_^ i like it!!!
This is the reason why Maharashtra govt changed the name of that City from Bombay to Mumbai 20 years ago, because they knew that some day someone would commit such blunder.
Ha ha ha ha! typical Ghati joke
Prasheesh Kumar..Still not changed name of 'Bombay Dyeing' to 'Mumbai Dieing'..
Inspite not knows a bit of Tulu...Hannan done right thing..alerted others..Good cause....If really 'bomb' placed than..??
Hannan became famous overnight.
Expensive comedy of Error indeed !!!!!!
In facebook langauage, Infosys got 'TROLLED' :D
ಫೋನುಡು ಪಾತೆರ್ನಾಯೆನ ಕೆಬಿಕ್ಕ್ ಬೆಚ್ಹ ತಾರಯಿದ ಎಣ್ಣೆ ಮೈಪೊಡು
GOOD JOKE.(KERALA AND HINDI WONT'T MATCH.)
Funny incident and it demonstrates how a simple misdialled phone call can cause panic and bring a big institution to a grinding halt, causing loss worth crores by production loss and precious time of the authorities!!!
Do not worry about that...the employees will be asked to work on sunday to compensate for this...
Queerer. People Fear.Call of Error. Hoax of Terror. Rush in Elevator. Nobody see Mirror.Bombay calls of Horror. Change telephone operator.
This explanation is RIDICULOUS AND LAME!!!
I am going to narrate this story to my kids...lol
Joke of the year ? We can add the same to Rampanna's list of jokes.
Hannan or Annan,They are there everywhere in India.Once I asked in Mumbai 'Limbu Ka Acchar' typical Anna in Mnagalore store in Bandra and gave me 4 Limca's (he heard limca chaar)
A joke of the year 2013 !!!!.
Dinesh Poojary, No one ask security for church's nor any policemens garding the churchbut it is fundamental right to ask punish(nara cut madi ) those who involve such acts
AF, mangaloreYou have taken U turn now. Apply the same logic everywhere.
Give this guy a medal!
Indeed comedy of errors! A Tulu lady communicates to a Malayalam guy and the latter hears Hindi mistakingly!This is the second error. The first being the lady who wants to call up 'Bomb hai' ends up calling Mangalore Infosys!Perhaps the comedy gave a good mock trial to the Bomb detection squad!
Need training for maid-servants as is in mahrashtra..
Captain Muza : This is INDIA not PAKISTAN this might be JOke our India is clean & My state is a ROYAL
be careful when keralite's attend the phone, their pronunciation and understanding is unique!!!
Comedy Of The Year!!!)
Then THUMBE will be heard as THUM B???
That's y the name was changed to Mumbai. If you cant call it by that then, then this will happen again ??
Mr.Dinesh Poojary,Providing Security at company is responsibility of management of the company ,CM can not provide each and every company security unless some severe threats.police shud investigate immediately and take actions against culpritstomorrow some thing happens at your home do not expect CM will come and give you security
AF, mangalore if there was BJP govt then i dont think so you would have commented the same right??
Dear Durgadas Suvarna, My comment is same, i don't care whether it is BJP or CONG, We need good govt, good policies,good environment to leave thats all
AF, mangaloreCan we apply the same logic here:Providing security to church is the responsibility of the church admin. Why should we blame then Govt for church attacks? Logical right?
Dinesh Poojary, Kundapura/BengaluruCan we apply the same logic here:Providing security to the theft in temples is the responsibility of the temple admin. Why should we blame then Govt for theft?Logical right?
Dinesh Poojary, Kundapura/BengaluruWhen there was theft in temples you used to blame Siddu and company.now for church attack church admin is responsible.?
Dinesh Poojary, Kundapura/BengaluruEach and every matter there have solution on the door there written "Pull" that mean we should pull but if we "push" means injustice manner.
Diwali is approching.It might me Laxmi Bomb or Beedi Pataki
Everything is over now in Mangalore region. This was the only one such act was pending and it has been concluded now. Ever since Congress came to power in Kar_Nataka, everybody feels free now so they are free to do anything they wanted because they know very well that their forefathers will be there in right place to bail them out. Moreover our Law Enforcement Authorities are not allowed to touch any culprits belongs to “AHINDA”
Why do you aam adhmi bring every situation into politics? This was a situation that made us laugh and not cry. So be happy and enjoy the news...
I Think its a fake call,... Simply joking by some one,...
I thought that in Infosys more than 500 persons where working,But in the photos, only hand full of Infosys staff were there and more than that I can see only Press peoples.
In our times there were no Bombsonly 'Bomb-Shells' and only in a swagger they would have many 'Shelled' easily....Me -prey? NoNo No...Ain't I alive now?You should have seen those 'Bomb-Shells' but! Really...No Joking...O.K.?
Mangalore BOMB Squad personnel are without safety harness??!! Look how ill equipped we are.
This might be pusss bomb, nonetheless one should take precaution. This also will show to the public how prepared are the police n other agencies in case of a real attack or bomb explosion. There is urgent need for more mock drills to energize sleeping big-tummy mangalore police!!
And CM siddappa says law and order is under control in state.
Somebody wanted leave today...nice way to request for leave...
Increase of crime rate under new state government and the laid back attitude of the govt. prompts miscreants to mock at police in these ways. Mangalore police should act on this immediately and prove they are worth what they are!
Jobless narrow minded people, who enjoy seeing others in trouble.
Someone wants to take off i feel, so they did the idea like this... hahhaha
Makkalay evatthu rajay
Bomb squad testing device here, fit only for 'Ole Pataki' or 'Dursu'....!
Some tight fellow in the afternoon...Everybody cracking one joke or the other here...Infosys Personnel, however came gushing out ,ran straight to the available loos and then also the gushing did not stop...Call Hoax me thinks 100%
Hope this is POKKADE BOMB threat.But the phone call must be traced n arrest the caller n investigation to be done properly.
