Typically used to shorten the usage "I did that because". Almost a translation of "Yakkendre" from Kannada, and "Kyonki" from Hindi. But widely used by all.

Usage

Preeti: How did you come today?
Veena: I came by auto. WhyBecause it was gettting late and the bus was not coming and the exam will start at 9 sharp.
