Definition

Literally, a little bit.

Used as a figurative substitute for 'please'.

Used very often as part of a request. Useful and invoked ubiquitously since asking a favour or swalpa adjust maadi is an inescapable part of daily routine. Liberally sprinkled in Bambaiya-speak.

Usage

"Thoda side please" (Would you excuse me a little please?)

"Thoda idhar aana." (Could you please come here?)

"Thoda humlog udhar aarai" (We are coming over, if you don't mind.)
