It was sacrilege to bring Indian sweets to school (St. Francis Xavier's, Bangalore) on your birthday. Never mind that you stood for an hour in line at Bhagatram's on Commercial Street and got them hot-hot. Your classmates turn away disdainfully while the class-teacher would inspect the box carefully and declare, "Indian sweets, chile?" and call you later to the staff-room, grab a handful and pack it into her lunch box.

Usage

Cheryl: See the fun, chile. That Laxmi in my class, no manners, she brought off Indian sweets for her birthday.

Many of us know about this phrase "Indian Standard Time" which means late by an hour to any place. Things in India generally move slowly, but dont worry, take it easy policy, or simbly adjust madi.
Sometimes in India it is not good to show up on time. So if the wedding starts at 4, it actually starts at 5:30. :)

Usage

"you know us old ladies, we always show up on Indian Standard time, at least about 2 hours late"
