Originally from Urdu/Farsi denoting a thousand. Used largely in the vernacular at the IITs starting in 1950s. In that context Hazaar referes any quantity or number more than a few, as in "I saw hazaar girls near the hostel", when in fact the number of girls may be just 4. One theory, formulated by Vibhakar Modi (IIT-B class of 1986) is that a "hazaar" is the logarithm of 1,000 to base 10, or 3. So any quantity greater than 3 is considered hazaar. Other interpretations of the word exist too. Used very frequently to grossly exaggerate the count or impact of something.

Usage

There are hazaar birds on the tree.
He is a hazaar bore punter, yaar.
