Ka Batsha



Ka "Batsha" ka dei ka baranda ha ka ïing Khasi. Ka "Batsha" ka long ka bynta kaba ha khmat jong ka ïing, kaba la tap tnum, kaba long shabar bad kaba ïasoh lang bad ka ïing.


"Ka Batsha" is the veranda of a Khasi house. It forms the front part of the house, which is roofed and open to the outside, and connected to the house.


The Khasi word "Batsha" may definitely be preferred over "Baranda" which feels like a derivative of the English word Veranda/ Verandah. Tharai bun na ngi ngin nym ïa tip ïa ka ktien "Batsha" 😄🍃🌬️ 🟡 Source: Rev. Dr. Ïarington Kharkongor 🟡 English translation by @speakyourroots
