Thanks Dan barno!......... But i don't think Oxygen mean Iska...... Iska is Air  and Sararin samaniya is sky not atmosphere, but i think you are right with computer translation.

 :D Myself kenan, do you know the meaning of dambula, you remind me of my late grandmother, she usually used that expression whenever we disturb her.

Myself, you better get somebody to translate those things before I go to sleep tonight.

I think the word DAMBULA or DAMBULLA most probably came from Kanuri , bare-bari, Bornu and as Myself (what a User name!) said it has to almost always to do with a very serious "Zagi". It is also often found in people's name around that area as in Kacella Dambulla...

This is just my opinion.

By the way, do you know that the people of Kazaure were originally Kanuri?

I dont even know how the explain that word, it is a part of a hand and only appear when you fold your hands ready for boxing! i dont know the name in English or any other language.

But certainly it is not a serious zagi as Sdanyanro asserts, it is a very mild one. 

As for the people of Kazaure, i have heard of it once, but uptill now i havent laid my hand on any material, i would have love if you could furnish me with one, because there is a work going in in collaboration with our people (Kanuri) at Lafian Barebari.

So lets get back to business

Atmosphere?
Oxygen?
