Literal Translation: Nothing in the butt, yet has gone to defecate Juhu. For those unfamiliar with the landscape of Mumbai, Juhu is a popular beachside destination which is a paradox all by itself. Classy high street boutiques exist side by side with humble vada-pav and pain-puri wallahs. It also takes a considerable amount of 'goo' (poop) to defecate the entire Juhu area. Therefore, this gem of a phrase can imply that a person doesn't have the capacity to do a task despite their loud proclamations.

Usage

Student A: Did you hear? She is applying to foreign universities like Haarvard and Gambridge!

Student B: With only 60%? Gaand mein nahi hai goo, hugne chale hai Juhu!

Definition

"When man was created, he was quipped with a skull to protect his brain. This original protection measure " set-up" was effective in the then soft environment which was man's normal habitat'. As man evolved, he started by taming the horse, as he outgrew the speed capability of the horse, he began searching for faster modes of travel. He first developed the steam engine, followed by the internal combustion engine and then the turbine. Man, while he has succeeded in propelling himself at speeds that would have scared his ancestors, has also changed his surroundings to hard unyielding surfaces both horizontal and vertical."

Unfortunately, he has not been able to transform himself to the protective needs of his new lifestyle and environment. The helmet is, therefore, necessary and just a link in the long chain of safety equipment and counter measures man has to use in his present surroundings.

Definition

Move your bum infinitesimally so that an additional seating area is created for another individual.

Commuter-speak in Mumbai.

Usage

Superman chases Lex Luther across the smoggy Mumbai skies. The lithe villain sweeps his gaze across the densely-populated streets and train stations. His eyes lock in on Vile Parle train station. Frantically, he advances toward the foot overbridge. Superman goes after him.

Our caped superhero has met his match. Lex Luther is lost in the crowd. Superman rushes through the teeming population. This is a rough moment for him, as the merciless crowd makes their way to work. His cape is pulled in several directions, but his underwear's condition is even more tragic.

A Churchgate local arrives. Through the mass of commuters, Superman spots Lex Luther as he gets into a compartment. Superman is also pulled in by the mass into another compartment.

This is exhausting. Ajay Varma, courier boy and all-round good samaritan notices our hero. Clearly, he needs a seat.

Ajay holds Superman by his arm, and squeezes him through. All seats are taken.

As a disappointed Superman is about to collapse, Ajay blurts out to the seated gentleman on the right.

"Bas kya, thoda khisak na!"
