I was listening to BBC Raido 4 today; Inspector Ghote's First Case, by H.R.F. Keating, when two words caught my attention.
In the south, when I was "very young", if you were behind the horse and plow, you hollered "Gee" and "Haw" to tell the horse to move left or right.
Today, Inspector Ghote (of the Bombay Police), was questioning a servant who replied to the Inspector's questions with something that sounded like "gee-haw"...
Anyone tell me what he was saying?
