Definition

Friskiness. Spunky energy, often used when seen in the underdog.
A versatile word, chool can be used in a variety of contexts, non-sexual and sexual.

Usage

A hitherto poor ping-pong player smashes the ball with unusual energy, upon which his opponent might say, "What da, showing a lot of chool today?"

How is that new employee of yours?
Not good da, I told him to finish the TPS reports and he told me that I should bugger off.
Too much chool, da.

Definition

MMS when sent in India does not refer to the innocuous Multimedia Messaging Service(by which one can send photos of cute dogs, sweet ringtones, video clips of babies)..but to the seedy amateur sex videos of various ludhiana-jammu-agra-delhi scandals. MMS has been the rage ever since the famous DPS scandal did the rounds and has established itself as a dirty word in many a Indian's Lexicon...
Currently has replaced the blue film VHS collection in the libraries of Naughty Indian Uncles

Usage

Al Daad: Oye I am sending this nice MMS enjoy
Al Khaaj: oye WTF what is this cute puppy shit...wo Patiala Scandal wala bhej bhosdiwaale!!!

Sometimes, it's possible to simply be born at the wrong time. Here, one doesn't mean born during the wrong era, though one can wish fervently that Brian Lara could have played in the era of T20 games and minted a fortune, or have competed more with Sachin Tendulkar for cricket glory. No, one means, say, that you were born on July 20, 1982 (Prince William) or November 1, 1973 (Aishwarya Rai). Timings are everything, whether we're talking about gents timings or ladies timings. You see, both Aishwarya Rai and Prince William are mangliks, born in the condition of Mangal Dosha, which is an astrological combination that occurs if Mars is in the 1st,2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th house of the Vedic astrology Ascendant chart. Then, gone case only. This has been proved by Vedic Science.

If you are a manglik, the angry astral effects of Mars will, according to Vedic astrology, make you a terrible spouse. You will sow disharmony in your wake. Your husband or wife might die. You yourself are virtually a walking soocide case. But wait! All is not lost. There is a cure.

If you marry a tree first, such as a Peepal tree, and then have it cut, OR marry a matka and then have it broken, the ill effects of your astrally doomed birthday are negated. Or, if you marry another manglik, the negative vibes you both exert on each other will cancel each other out. One doesn't know how this works egjactly, but one supposes that two fiery Martians experience what one can only read about in books (see kamasutra for a brief overview).

So, to summarize: two mangliks in love? Good. One manglik loving a non-manglik? Sadly, this is a formula for lau failure, unless you first find an aboreal roadside romeo, marry your dau off to it, then kill the tree. It's complicated, but what to say? WALTO.

Usage

Dishoom Dishoom: Would you marry Aishwarya Rai, even though she's manglik?
Mainmacha: Mad or what? Of course I would. All you have to do is find a tree...
Dishoom Dishoom: You do realize that she's already married, right? And that I was asking a hypothetical question? And that you continue to be a bachelor? And that your prospects lessen with every passing year?
Mainmacha: Fine, find me the tree.

Definition

Amazing as it may seem, you can hear folks announce their e-mail as ignoramus "at the rate of" gmail.com (ignoramus@gmail.com for those who have not got it yet). You scratch your head and squint hard every time you hear a desi use 'at the rate of' for the @ sign in an email address. The lessons from 6th class simble indresd problems have been so ingrained in the skull (remember (p.n.r/100), where r is interest 'at the rate of....@' that the definition sticks lifelong. Admittedly the usage has come down, but every so often a desi bhai or behan will surprise with at the rate of yahoo.com.

Usage

Adhik jankari ke liye aap Hamay email, babajotish at the rate of hotmail daat kaam pe bheje.

(To learn more, send me email to babajotish at the rate of hotmail daat com.)

If the sight of that ornate pink elephant sets you salivating and you instinctively squat on the pavement edge and sharply draw a breath in as you grimace through paan stained incisors, then you already know exactly what 501 Mangalore Ganesh Beedis are...

Usage

Silesh: "Guru, my cousin sister just took up a position in San Francisco, but she is missing Amma's cooking. Can I send some items with you?"
Aiyappashivan (aka Ivan): "Sorry boss, hand bag is full, see? Trying to travel light... y'know?"
Silesh (peering inside Samsonite): "What is this nonsense! You are having one toothbrush, one jeanspant, and 5 packages of some 100 something bloody beedis. That too 501s. Can't leave one or two and take some murukkus for Meenakshi or what?"
Ivan: "Sorry dude. My band mates, Jungle Fever and Magic Frowntain, only smoke 501 Mangalore Ganesh Beedis while we are performing"
Silesh: "Eh?? Band?"
Ivan: "Yea, we are a Deatbeats cover band..."
Silesh: "Hmm. Who are The Deadbeats?"
Ivan: "A Grateful Dead cover band......"
Silesh: "Ok bye! Good thing pa! Don't think Amma's murukkus would have made it to San Francisco!"
