2. Flake may be an unreliable person, don't know the exact meaning, madam, please correct me....maybe small pieces

3. Flaky means eccentric, crazy as a slang...or separating easily into small thin pieces, e.g. the cake is flaky

4. Flamboyant means very confident or very colorful

5. flaw means mistake, fault, weakness
Those who worship the natural elements enter darkness (Air, Water, Fire, etc.). Those who worship sambhuti sink deeper in darkness. [Yajurveda 40:9]; Sambhuti means created things, for example table, chair, idol, etc.
