Thank you for the comment. Im not professional for the English.
Anyway, just asked the question to not mess you.

Hello nose_picker ,

I think you should mentioned that you meant the Lanka meaning of 'sister' . In most of slavonik languages 'sister' may also mean 'a nurse' / as in general nurses are women / , but you asked in English and therefore I think your sentence is a non-sensese . Sorry .

Best wishes ,

Hello everybody,
I can't catch what the soldiers say at 02.44 minute, when Amandeep has been recruited.
What do they shout?

Hello Eugenia,

They should 'huzzah!', which is an old-fashioned form of 'hurray!'
