Delicious, I would prefer chalta chutney though.

Another meaning of amra in bengali is 'we'. E.g, Amra Math is fun er sodosyo -> We are members of Math is fun.

The 3-letter word 'ife' (a tropical African bowstring hemp) is going to be a problem for me.

Life maybe?

That was my #1 guess...love grows if you follow the rule of **life**.

Others:

Love grows if you follow the rule of your wife to practise your **fife **silently.

Love grows if you follow that rule of your **wife**.

Love - if you praise that rule of your wife and give her flowers - is **rife**.

Love is over, if you haven't followed that rule of your wife and she tells you to go and find some **nife**.
