Definition

When you have over a billion people jostling for resources, jobs, space, and attention, its very natural to develop a whole vocabulary centered around status. See Foren-returned, engle in the gelf, IIT, bigjang etc.

The catch-all phrase, typcally uttered by a proud parent to describe their puny tambrahm sons movement along the desi pecking order is "From where to where he has come!" usually accompanied by a smug headbobbing movement and an inverted palm gesture.

Usage

Mother: I am so proud of Hari. Just yesterday he was a simple curd rice eating boy. Now look at him. Such a bigshot. He is now the Vice President of Jingfosys managing a team of 69. From where to where he has come?
