Noun. August 18, 2014, Word of the Day

Definition

August 15 seems like an apt day to define this term. March past means a parade involving movement of arms and legs in a systematic manner according to the rhythm of drums and maintaining one arm distance between the person ahead and oneself. Subject of intense competition in schools and displayed proudly for occasions such as Republic Day, Independence Day and school sports day. Every school kid in India holds pleasant and not so pleasant memories relating to march past – multiple practices in the hot afternoon sun, the occasional sunstroke cases and of course, the crazed PT teacher.

Usage

Appu to PT teacher: I don’t want to stand behind Sanju for march past. She never does left-right-left properly and ends up hitting my knuckles hard!

At first glance, the worst possible designation that could be bestowed upon a young and aspiring studmuffin of school going age. What is a serious, filial, and traditional affair in North India, has a rather sinister purpose in the South.

The dreaded day of Rakshabandhan arrives and all the young males rise early, with trepidation, brush-teeth-wash-face, and shave even when most don't need to just to feel like a man. Today is the day that all the cutest girls in class are about slap the cuffs on the hopefuls and dub them Rakhi Brother. "Rise ye jilted child" they seem to say as you mope around suringified for the rest of the day.

But you are a valiant eng bai and emotions do not weigh heavily upon you so you recover quickly and realise that this dubious recognition is actually some form of attention, a unique connection that you can rely on to link the two of you, Rakhi Brother and Rakhi Sister, in a cosy social twosome.

"Aicchhhhh!" you think to yourself as you seek out your Rakhi Sister to attempt a leading conversation. This is where the reality begins.

Usage

{Setting: a schoolyard, but not under singapore cherry trees}

Meena: So, what's the plan?
Shalini: We are all going to Corner House to have lamb burgers and Death by Chocolate yaar, are you and Sumant coming?
Sumant (brightening): W...
Meena (casual): Ya, I'll come
Shalini: And if you come then of course Sumant will come!
Meena (quickly): Please ya, he's my Rahki Brother!
Sumant (head hung low): Ya please, she's my Rakhi Sister.....

For nine years the esteemed UPA Government, both 1 and 2 have strived hard to construct a Nation and with the completion of nine years in power serving the nation, the powers that be have decided to let the nations know about the Sri Manmohan Singh led government's modest achievements in nation building. The High Command is not at odds with the PM, just so you know.
While the equally competent and esteemed Government of Sri Atal Bihari Vajpais NDA regime did the same with their own modest attempt to educated the aam junta on its nation building under the name of India Shinning, they were not as successful in informing the stubborn public about their contributions to make India shine.
Bharat Nirman is not an advertising campaign or an election slogan as pointed out by the esteemed Minister of Broadcasting and Information Sri Manish Tiwari, he has clarified that it is just an exercise in telling the story of India, the journey of India.
The money spent on these informational pieces of educational materials, be it print, radio, broadcast or the internets has been spent with the interest of the aam admis in mind and it is beneficial to everyone so thus in conclusion it is not the waste of the 6% of Indians who pay their taxes.

Usage

INC - Bharat Nirman!
BJP - India Shining!
INC - Bharat Nirman!
BJP - India Shining!

BJP - Bharat Nirman!
