The definitive guide to South Asian lingo

Ayyo! Thatandalldontask! Must we really talk about this? But mummy-daddy never had sex. Chee! How we got to 1.2 billion in the land of the kamasutra is simply full confoosing. Toba, toba!... etc. Our Traditional with Modern Outlook generation has reams to say on the topic, falling in and out of lau, dau, and everything in between. But like all matters of culture, tradition, and evolution in our intensely wonderful nations, nothing is the same in all places and nothing is as it seems in any one place. So let’s acknowledge that our hips gyrate smoothly between modernity and austerity, as our values swing wildly between invention, assimilation, resistance and obedience. Ok, enough! Shy is coming...

Mysore Mallige literally means Jasmine of Mysore. Now used to refer to the Mysore Mallige Scandal in 2003 that involved the leaking of a home sex video made by a couple. The video was leaked on the internet and posted online with the screen name "Mysore Mallige." Calling someone 'Mallige' can now connote 'slut'


Usage

"Mangalore leads the pack in the sleaze game. It's believed that the clip that got the Karnataka ministers into trouble was called Fasila, and was a hit in Mangalore and neighbouring Kasargod two years ago. Six years ago, a seven-minute MMS sex clip was converted into a half-hour CD named Mangalooru Mungaru Male and sold widely. In 2000, before mobiles became the rage they are now, sex CDs flew off the shelves. The famous 40-minute clip, Mysore Mallige (known as MM CD) that featured a girl from Puttur, was sold for as much as Rs 1,000."

While typically used to refer to a beautiful and fair girl from a village, the expression itself reveals something interesting about us.

Hindi phrase which translates to "the white girl in the village." "Gaon" means "village" and "gori" means "fair."

Being an Indian girl who looks like a gori girl or a foreigner is always a compliment.Also the name of a popular Bollywood movie. Stems from our national obsession with being fair.

Usage

"Modiji’s bharatiya naari is an entirely different breed, best epitomised in iconic ye olde Hindi film cliches: the gaon ki gori sweating over the hot chulha; demure housewife serving chai-paani to her hardworking patidev; long-suffering widow who looks for livelihood to feed her children; soft-hearted mother whose love extends to all of God’s creatures. Why talk to the real women in front of you, when you can wax eloquent about imaginary ones culled from fiction."

A pithy Tamil saying that literally translates to: Construct a house, Conduct a Wedding (or Marriage for those of us Desis who think the difference is simbly semantic)...

It is what the world weary gent says to the annoying new kid on the block constantly complaining about life's trivialities like traffic jams and school admissions and corrupt passport officials and load shedding and ...

"Go construct a house and conduct a marriage and then we can talk about problems"

In the great Samsara train ride between the Bhramacharyam and Vanaprastham junctions, the life of the average Desi parent is one of continual existential angst driven by 2 concerns
1) How will I marry off my daughters?
2) Will I have a home of my own by the time I retire?

and this is why your 60-year old Appa...
...watching you ride off with your new green-card spouse in that taxi to the airport, standing on his freshly painted new verandah, turns to your Amma and says..
...I wonder what happened in the world after 1982..

Usage

If Kipling were reincarnated as a Desi, he probably would have written

If you can construct a house and conduct a marriage
and still keep your sanity and an erect carriage
You will be a man, my son
