Definition

Slang-on-slang. Uber-slang? An even more close and comfortable, perhaps affectionate, variant of Machan or macha. There are no specific rules around which to use when, it's just a matter of tone and style. As is everything on the streets of Chennai.

Usage

Raghu (expressing severe disappointment): "Machi, go machi!"
Ram (concerned): "What machan? What happened?"
Raghu: "You never came to my new house, how much I called you"
Ram (repentant): "Machi, sorry machi. Been so busy I can't even tell you da. Come we'll go now itself..."
