A fishy matter

The school leader Midhun read the news in the morning assembly, “A fishy matter”

Concerns over formaldehyde contamination of fish need to be addressed scientifically.
But some of his friends didn’t catch him correctly. Here we see the conversation between him and his classmates.
Mahesh: “The heading you read “ a fishy matter” is it regarding fish ? Midhun: Of course! It is regarding fish. But in this context we can take it in the other way also. “Fishy” is an adjective and it means that thing makes you suspicious because it seems dishonest. ( aÂky¯n t^mÀamen³ ambw tNÀ¯p ) Example: A guy is peeping in while you use your ATM is “Fishy”. A student who often looks to another student’s answer sheet when writing an exam is “fishy”(not expected to do). And another meaning is as you said, relating or resembling fish.
Mahesh: Oh, that. That explains it. Now I remember that once our teacher Ms Sabitha told us that we have to take the meaning contextual (kµÀ`¯n\v A\pkcn¨v AÀYw D­mIpw). And she asked, “ what is that fishy smell in the class”?
Midhun: Yes, I know . That day Liju brought fish fry for his lunch and had it from the classroom. He is crazy about fish fry.
Mahesh: Ah! And you know he is very fond of fishing . His hobby is fishing .
Midhun: Oh , I see, That is why I see him rushing home after school. His home is near to a river.
Mahesh: May be , Yesterday while I was travelling with my family I saw many people on a boat and fishing coconut! Because the river was flooded.
Midhun: Correct! I read in the newspaper ( `mc-X-¸p-g-bn tX-§-]n-Sp¯w, km-[m-c-W ]-d-bm-dpÅ-Xv I-e-¡-sh-Å-¯n ao³-]n-Sp-¯w F-¶m-Wv. kzmÀ-Y XmÂ-]-cy-¯n-\p th-­n sN-¿p¶p.) They are fishing in troubled waters, means that they are trying to take an advantage from a difficult situation or someone else’s problem. We must avoid fishing in troubled waters. It is a bad behavior.
Mahesh: Ok , I get an idea! why can’t we join him this weekend? Let’s go fishing.( Go for fishing Bhiy-anÃ)
Midhun : Agreed! I am ready. But you should come on time, No excuse this time, okay! And remember “He who would catch fish must not mind getting wet”. (ssI \-\-bm-sX ao³ ]n-Sn-¡m³ I-gnbpI).
Mahesh: Sure, I bet! You mean as we learned in our class, “NO pain, no gain”.
Midhun: That sounds great ! See, somebody is coming to our class, Isn’t it a new guy? Ah ! yes, he is new.
Mahesh: Then shall we go and meet him, otherwise, he may feel like “a fish out of water” in this unfamiliar situation. It means he may feel uncomfortable. (Icbn Â-]n-Sn-¨n-« ao³ t]mse)
Midhun: Sure, we have to make him feel at home.
Mahesh: “Feel at home”, you mean, make him feel comfortable, right?
Midhun : Exactly, you got it correct. Hurray! Come on now , we will sit and chat with him now (kt´m-j-hm-\mIp-I F-¶ÀYw).
