Definition

Indian alternative for "slash" (you know, the / character on your keyboard...) The term more than likely originates from the fact that the character leans to the right.

A.K.A. stroke.

Usage

1. (Aunty, upon learning that her US return son Arun can return any item to Trader Joe's if he doesn't like it): Wah, beta, these American companies have a very lenient return-oblique-exchange policy! Our corner kirana shop would never allow, no?

2. OK, note down my address: two-one-three-oblique-A, Gangaram Estate, Block A, flat number two-naught-six, off MG Road, take a left at Mucchad paanwala's shop and ask any Raju on the road where the building is.
