Definition

The technique of starting a vehicle when all techniques have failed.
A gaddi or a lorry requires a bunch of people. Any stranger will join to help. It's fun pushing the old vehicle. The practice helps you hone the skills of starting up cold, middle aged gaadis if ever you have to be obliged to.
A bike is a different matter. You can do the 'push start' solo.
No one else is involved in the business. It comes handy when you are desperate for the ride and you are all alone.

Usage

Mechanic Mustafa: "Saab, aapka memsaab dopherko aayaso. Pehley push start karyaan. Gadi achacha hainso saab. Kal sham ko poora kholke dekhtoonga. Dekthey kaya karna."
( Sir, your missus came in the afternoon. I did the push start first. The gadi is good. Tomorrow evening i will open everything and see what to do.)
