Light Teesuko or Light Teesko or lite teesko - Meaning- take it easy. This was first created or invented by Dwaraka Ramana K in the year 1977 in Hyderabad, Telenga State, India. The word was first used when he was in the 10+2 level in his college days. President of the Students Association in one of the colleges asked Ramana to participate in of the programs for making a point. Ramana replied to him - "Light Teesko" (meaning take it easy). Every one liked the phrase and within no time it became a talk of the town. Now this is widely used phrase and it is mentioned in film songs as well.
