Back to Blighty

I have no idea why my homeland is called Blighty.

But I will be back there between 27th August and 7th September 2008.

You have been warned.

    Blighty is an English slang term for Britain, deriving from the Hindustani word vilāyatī (विलायती) (pronounced bilāti in many Indian dialects and languages) meaning “foreign”, and is itself derived from the Arabic/Urdu word wilayat, meaning a kingdom or ministry.”
