Definition

I don't even know how to define this, but it's the default coda in email correspondence in Indian HR official-ese. It means that the person in question would like a response.

Usage

It is used in emails sent by recruiters, software developers and other member of the species, Cantableto Anglicus. Get it? I can't able to explain this joke.

HR: "I would appreciate if you revert me back for the same as soon as possible."
Me: "OK, I will respond at the earliest." *sigh

Definition

Most Indians never encounter Latin words or phrases as part of their formal education. But if you went to Bishop Cottons in Bangalore you will inevitably come to learn and hate the phrase "Nec Dextrorsum Nec Sinistrorsum." Latin for "neither to the left, nor to the right," it is the school's motto, recited by Draconian school administrators and unctuous school prefects.

For wayward monkeys like me with a preternatural anti-establisment streak and a history of insubordination issues, this phrase stood for everything oppressive, confining and soul-crushing about Indian education.

Nec Dextrorsum, Nec Sinistrorsum - the proverbial Procrustean bed. Too far to the left and you will be get one nice thappad on your head. Too far to the right, six lashes on your bum. On straight on like a bakra and everything will be just right.

Usage

Cottons Boy1: Hey man we need to all stand in height order and walk over to the multi-purpose hall for socials! Can't wait to see all those cute Cottonian chicks! I am going to try and kiss Apeksha today!
Cottons Boy2: What a great idea! And I have some khodays rum on me which I am going to smuggle in! Full party today!

PT Master (hitting two boys on the head with duster): Bleddy idiots! Stop talking all this nonsense. Remember our school motto: Nec Dextrorsum, Nec Sinistrorsum. You two are a disgrace!

Whatte! Fellow Cottonian I say you are? So nice. My eyes only popped off when I saw the old school motto on Samosapedia - I think I still remember the whole thing. And you poor boys in the boys school had a rougher time than us gals it simms - our education was not so oppressive as y'all's.

Only one time I was fully envious of you lot - when I saw your canteen for the first time. Pah! Full love light only came off - you blighters got such fancy shmancy food like dosa and sandwich and whatnots one proper sagar type place man! Our little metal box called the tuck shop only had aloo rolls and mug'noodles and bar-one chocolate.

And hahahaaaa, don't even talk about those socials! I'll let you in on a secret, the girls would also be slyly checking out all the cute baiz as we walked in!
