Oh boy... how does one even begin to explain this one! Hold on, let me stop giggling.

Ok... It's Katpadi rhyming slang for "Hello, it's great to see you, but I have to cut, so I'm afraid this conversation is over, and yes I acknowledge that this seems rather rude, but so what, it's so rude that it's funny. See ya!"

Oh, and a kadlekai is a groundnut (peanut) in both Tamil and Kannada...

Usage

Sanju (walking up to Manju who's combing his hair in the rear view mirror of his Kiney): "I say Manju, do you know if..."

Manju (making hasty tracks at about 25 kmph): "Hi bye kadlekai!"
