>I am surprised to notice such 'ucchaaraNa lOpam' from G!
>(a la NTR's agnaanamu?). FYI.
Quite honestly, the correct pronounciation is 'cinhamu'  rather than
'cihnamu' as people see in script and wrongly utter the word as it is.
However, as we know, the latter is more in usage.  Similarly, another
situation is,  pronouncing  'kRpa'  or  'kRshNa',  where people generally
prononce them the wrong way saying 'krupa'  or 'krushNa',  but the correct
way is 'kripa'  or  'krishNa'.
