Buisa Komol, tumi tinisukiya hobo para, pise' bih jolokiya 'bhut ba bhoot jolokiya' nohoy. Oxomiya obhdhaanotw iyak 'bhwt jolokiya' buliyei paba, WITH a 'murdhonyo to' as Priyankoo explained.

My guess would be that the Bhutiyas like it too, or they grow them. Yes, the Nagas are the biggest consumers of this almost poisonous chili pepper. In fact, when I was at Namti in January, a local young man wanted to show me his 'bhwt jolokiya' plantation. I wanted to go, but had no time. I asked WHO buys them, he said they go to Nagaland.

I am a Tinsukian in every sense of the meaning and very well-conversant with the language,including local dialects.Could anyone explain to me why these chillies are stratified as bih jolokia,although they are certainly not poisonous? In my considered opinion,they are classified as bhoot jolokia perhaps because of this fact:---herou bih jolokia nekhabi,khale bhoot dekhi jabi bapeke.The name could very well be derived from the bhot tribe,but in day-to- day conversation,it appears to have a different connotation.Could it be possible that they are so- called in order to indicate the 'hotness' of these chillies rather than pointing towards the ' tribe' in question? It could be figurative rather than literal.

BTW,these are also called ' kordoixira jolokia' and 'Noga jolokia' by some locals.But,in my view,these two varieties are a bit different from bhot/bhoot/bih jolokia.

I am from Tinsukia district, born and brought up there, never heard of bhoot jolokiya, though. It is true some people pronounce the "o" as "u", but that does not make a ghost out of a tribe name, as far as the meaning is concerned.

It also does not justify the poor homework, on part of the correspondent!

best,
Priyankoo

In Ujoni Oxom ( in and around Tinsukia district ) ,the ' jolokias' in question are called ' bhoot jolokia or ' bih jolokia '.The name ' bhot jolokia' is perhaps unheard of in that part of the world.

In Namoni Oxom ( Kamrup district in particular ), the chillies,in general, are called ' bhijlook'.

'Bhut jolokia is world's hottest chilli'
THE VICTOR, THE VANQUISHED
New Delhi, June 17: They are as tez as they come. The bhut jolokia or 'ghost chillies' of Tezpur figure in the Time Magazine's latest issue as the world's hottest chilli. The magazine's cover story that takes a look at the culinary specialities and peculiarities around the world has zeroed in on the burnt orange pods, developed in a military laboratory in Tezpur, as packing the deadliest punch. The article 'Global Warming' notes that the bhut jolokia, also called the Naga chilli, carries the sort of heat that one normally would find only in the hottest chilli sauces made from pure pepper extract. Chilli heat is measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHUs), and while pure capsaicin, the main capsaicinoid in a chilli, measures 16 million SHUs, the ghost chilli measures just over one million SHUs.
