    Yeah, and another one used was to say that a ‘Kabool’ was on the prowl. ‘Kabool’ was supposed to be a giant with a long beard and a turban who’d take away little children!

    Guess where that came from? Traders from Afghanistan (Kabul is the capital) who made the door-to-door rounds in the old days, selling dates!!

    Later on, in the 60s when the Indian government made the first attempt to build a bridge at the site of the original bridge, ‘Kabool’ came back to life to haunt us but in another avatar – to take away little boys for sacrificing at the site so that the bridge would be made stronger:(

    Think you can fool the children now? They’re busy killing more fearsome demons than ‘Kabools’ and penetrating more frightening places than the ‘Dak Bungalows’ on their video games!!

    What about Birem-Boa(Term for White/European?.) or sombra de Birem-Boa (Albino – pigmentary dificiency) Description: extreamly fair/bright?

    and Cafrinho (referred to Black african). Im sure there is a song Cafrinho de Pangai(an island?), normally sung during christmas times.
