Definition

Means exactly what it says. However the Indian context here is different. The person saying "don't feel shy" is usually forcing you to eat another plate of rice when you are completely full and can feel the onset of the not so proverbial and very palatable delhi belly.

Usage

Aunty: Come on Braxton have some more idli. You are a growing boy. Don't feel shy
Braxton: No thanks aunty. I am very full and about to burst.
