On page 106 of the previous book by Professor Ueki, I pointed out to him that "vara-dundubhi-svara (the most excellent drum owner)" reminded me of American rock. I was thinking of the songs by Niel Sedaka or Paul Anka in 60s. The backup singers’ chorus sounded like "dundubhi dowa dowa" or something. He said it was interesting.
I also talked about the word with prefix s like sad-dharma. Sad means true in Sanskrit, and many good Japanese words starts with s. We then talked more about さ行 （sa, shi, su, se, so）of Japanese letters.
I posted the above paragraph on FB and received some comments. I guess my spelling of yabadabadoo as goodbye threw some people off. It was “Yabadava-du!” But I thought more about dundubhi and vara and svara and all the other words which were filling up in my brain.
Then, I made a discovery! Vara and svara ended up in our word, subarashii (すばらしい). Subarashii means splendid. Supreme and super also starts with s. It’s always something, isn’t it?
One more thing. Sutra starts with S. Ha! And I think “tra” could be the same as torah. We are all connected. Isn’t it wild?
