The definitive guide to South Asian lingo

Definition 1 of 1


The basic minimum request that the grooms family will make to the brides family when the couple is getting married.
No shame in that after all they have raised their son and given him an education. It is not like they are asking for hard cold cash and anyways how will it look if the boy goes around in his kiney even after getting married? What is your problem? Go, mind your own business.


Pandit - Dulha ko bulaiye.

Father of the Dulha - Nahi! My son will not get married to this wench till he gets a Maruti car!

Father of the Dulhan - I knew it, here take this key of your new Maruti car!

Father of the Dulha - Ainchhhh! Well played sir, but I would also require a color tv please.

Father of the Dulhan is flabbergasted.
