Sister-in-law.

This word often crops up in Bollywood blockbusters featuring Punjabi families. In real life, parjaais rarely get along with each other and often create a ton of khupp in the family.

Usage

"Main kiha, parjaai ji, sanoo maaf kar do. Main tuhaadi almaari noo kadee na kholaangee!"

"I say, sister-in-law, please forgive me. I'll never open your wardrobe again!"

What difference does it make? What's the big deal?

Used to point out that some small incident does not matter in the grand scheme of things. Can also be used to calm down someone who is tense/agitated.

A word of caution : Some chalu types also use this to avoid taking personal responsibility when things go phutt.


Usage

*Rich, tubby Delhi aunties at a kitty party*

Aunty 1 : "O yaar, that chocolate shop near my house is to be blamed for my weight gain. I can't fit into any of my blouses!"

Aunty 2, secretly pleased someone else finally weighs more than she does : "Ki farak painda hai? You can always get the blouses altered. See, now your plate is empty. Let me get you one more cream puff."

Definition

Beating/spanking/thrashing. In some cases, it can refer to a verbal lashing. Literally means "to get beaten with shoes". Regularly employed by Punjabi grannies to scare little Punjabi brats into submission after they have done some kirik. This word is often heard along with the other favourite for reprimands in the Punjab, khota.

Usage

Open Scene. Snotty Little Brat has eaten up all the butter in the house, leaving none for making greasy, cholesterol ridden aloo paranthas for lunch. Which leads to much galata, especially since there's no "home-delivery in 30 minutes or free pizza" funda in the scenic village.

Granny, incensed with rage, to Snotty Little Brat : Oye khotey, tenoo teh main dabb ke chittar pheraangee! (You idiot, I'm going to give you one heck of a whooping!)
