Definition

The Research and Analysis Wing of the Indian government. Comparable in function to the CIA or MI6, RAW serves as India's external intelligence agency. It was formed in September 1968 after the poor performance of the "Intelligence Bureau". RAW agents wear slim-fitting, short-sleeved dress shirts with skinny black ties. They also carry tightly-groomed mustaches. They are often spotted (sadly) carrying thin leather-bound briefcases with dossiers for the Desi's they serve.

Usage

"RAW agents were after the dacoit, chasing him down Brigade Road. The dacoit ran down an alleyway, grabbed nearest bottle and, DISHOOM, kolted all the RAW agents with a loud thok!"
