The definitive guide to South Asian lingo

You want people? We have people! Torrents and waves and pulsing hoards of people. We don’t have lines of people or queues or rows, that’s not how we arrange ourselves, but we have spectrums of colours of us, diverse shapes of us and springing ideas of us. We are most definitely people people. Warm, gregarious, invasive, curious, crowded, cosmopolitan, spiritual, family-oriented, money-minded, mixed, gurgling wealthy poor masses of people speaking a thousand tongues and dancing a thousand ways. To be an outstanding little sapling in this teeming organic matrix takes character, and if there’s one thing we have in desi-land, it’s characters! Read on and dip in, but please don’t mistake...

Definition

The wannabe "chick" who really needs to make her presence felt and tells the world that "she has" arrived. Jhalliness fades away when she pouts her, just learnt agrezi words. Though deep within she would be that kitten lost in a big bad world, but on the surface she is all rampaging red bull types. Can be sighted around Cafe Kaffi Day, Star bhakts and around all fancy resto's whose menu cards seems more hebrew than english to her.

Usage

Gang of boys: Hey check out that babe in red bro.
Second boy: Cool chick maaan...
(Girl starts to speak)......pliizzz make way
Boy three: Hey thats a dehati turned model dude......scooot !!!
