Definition

Memory of this word surfaced on reading Shake Hasina's* throw the towel in. When you put kerchief, you block or reserve something for yourself.

Comes from the Kannada 'karchiff haakbitte!'

From a seat on 7D to the dau who lives down the road, you can put kerchief for yanything and yevrything. Then with same kerchief you can wipe your sweaty armpits & blow your nose loudly, we dont mind.

*ayyo, fellow has multiple pursenalty disorder men, God knows what hes calling himself now..

Usage

Ranganath: aye how you took Suma for pitcher in Opera mane?? I had put kerchief for her long back!
Sridhar: Your kerchief had only 2 wheels macha! Mine has 4 & its called 'Honda City'! Now she is mines, buaahaahaahaa!
