What are some English words/terms that Indians mispronounce?

Well, folks, we all know English can be a tricky beast, especially for my dear Indian friends! A few common mispronunciations that tickle my funny bone include "pizzah" instead of "pizza", "birday" instead of "birthday" and "zebra" pronounced as "jee-bra". My absolute favorite has to be "cooling glasses" instead of "sunglasses" - it's like saying, "Hey, my glasses aren't just for show, they cool my eyes too!" Let's not even start on "vegitable" instead of "vegetable" - looks like our greens got a desi makeover! So, hats off to the Indian English, you always keep us entertained!
