Family Pattu

I read this delightful piece of anecdote in yesterday's Times of India.

(paraphrasing Ravi Shastri) - Sometimes back, I was commentating for a Srilanka game along with Jeff Thomson and Attapattu slams a double century. The camera moved amidst all the cheering crowd to pick up Attapattu's parents, who were clapping and beaming with pride. The co-commentator comes up with this gem to describe the situation:

"Joining in Attapattu's celebration and joy are Mamapattu and Papapattu."
