Singh is Kinng! Indeed!

Singh is King – or is it Singh is Kinng, bad spelling and all? – seems to be a rage. Son is singhing its praises. So is the world. The song won’t leave his lips same as the song “Dum maro dum” when the film “Hare Krishna Hare Ram” was released, and “Mere Sapnon Ki Rani” when Aradhana was released. A colleague’s niece went to see the movie and can’t get over it. Ever since the tiny tot has been in a mesmerised state singing the song, albeit with a slight variation:

Thing is thing!
Thing is thing!
Thing is thing!

Instead of:

Singh is Kinng!
Singh is Kinng!
Singh is Kinng!

How’s that for bad spelling and even worse malapropism! No, I haven’t yet seen the movie, so I won’t put anything here about it’s merits, except a word about the bad spelling.
