What is "B A Y"?

Weekend time. I was playing with Mrunmay, one of his games - 3 letter words.

After every round, I was telling him the meaning of the word formed, in the form of question / answers. Like "Do you know this word?", "Do you know it's meaning?" and wherever required giving him examples and/or translations. After few rounds, the dispenser gave us two letters: "B" and "A". The only possible combination left was the word "BAY". I started asking him the meaning... Me: "Do you know what is BAY?" Mrunmay: "Bay??" Me: "Yeah.. do you know what is the meaning of Bay?&q

If this is true, there has to be a deliberate attempt and process from Team Anna to clear every person off the charges through proper channel. And more importantly, if there have been mistakes in the pas
