*Beijjat is usually slurred to ‘bejat’. Beijjat can mean ‘Dishonour’, ‘Shame’ etc.

**’Maan Parnu’ is used to confess rather than ‘maya garnu’ because ‘maya’ is more related to mother’s love than lover’s love. So I love would rather be ‘Ma timilai man parauchu’ than ‘ma timi lai maya garchu’. But both are correct.
