The definitive guide to South Asian lingo
2 3


Kannada phrase meaning "Straight" (in the narrow sense) or "In that general directiuon" (broad sense). Used in road directions. Extremely unreliable, as it is always unclear (1) how far to believe instruction (2) if believed, how far to travel in suggested direction (3) if believed and travelling in suggested direction, was the instruction meant in the narrow sense or the broad sense?


"How do I go to Piccadilly Square?" "Saar, first circle left and then got ishtraaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiit. It will be on left"
