Definition

A very famous game among school kids. Every morning, when they meet, they must have a black dot, called Jolly (usually made by pen or marker) on the bottom corner of their right hand (or left hand, as decided). If caught without the Jolly, they have to pay a fine or punishment, as decided by the group.

Usage

Ram: "Where's your jolly today?"
Lakhan: "Oh no. I forgot!"
Ram: "C'mon now you take us all for a pepsi treat to the canteen!"
