Some politicians watched dirty things on their cellphone, it simms.

Imagine this.. Many naughty uncles, some of whom are very concerned with cooperating and managing the welfare of women and children, a bunch of TV cameramen, instead of doing their boring jobs, decide to get adventurous with their zoom and catch a bunch of these very naughty uncles doing what naughty uncles do.. watch bluefilms. The problem was the watching TV (of any color) is not allowed at work, specially if you are an elected minister! While all the other uncles are discussing some random flag hoisting topic, these 2 however were working "hard" in their own way researching rave parties and the problems that plague wild women, which the mango public (aam junta) and their fellow righteous ministers did not appreciate one bit.

As hypocritical as it may sound, "chee.. chee.. no decency at all", some one, "disgusting behaviour", said another and they all cried in unison as the saffron brigade were burying their faces. "We wanted to see how women are raped in rave parties", said one naughty uncle, another said, "it was a small matter and there was nothing to raise a hullabaloo about" and by daybreak, it was off with their heads.. on moral grounds, purely a voluntary thing off course.

To make it easy for the historians to add this interesting episode to our kids textbooks, they named the episode porngate! How cool is that?

Usage

In the boardroom of ABC fortune 100 company: Rahul, can you please stop meddling with your berry during the meeting?
Rahul: Sorry boss, I just received an interesting message, wonly 2 minutes.
Boss: Let me not catch you with the wrong stuff eh Rahul.. I don't want a blooming porngate-u in our office! We are all decent people!
Rahul: but boss...
Boss: stop watching dirty videos in the office Rahul, this is not the place!! By the way, meet me after work this evening, let's have a drink, I have something to show you.

Pornu is Kannada for porn, and refers to the cheesy South Indian item numbers seen on some tv channels late at night, Chitrahaar style. Korree means to give. This phrase was first coined in a girl's hostel in Bangalore, full of bored Naarth Indian college girls. In short, Pornu Korree is the practice of laughing one's head off at the ridiculous moves seen in these film songs of the South.

Late on a Saturday night, after the gates of the hostel had been clanged shut, a group of eng girls unimpressed with the usual tv programming, happened to be changing channels on the khataara hostel tv in order to find something more amusing to watch. But to their utter astonishment, channel after South Indian channel seemed to show something hitherto unforseen as part of it's late-night programming - a profusion of vulgar looking item songs (not that item songs are ever tasteful), one after the other, in the local lingo.

Said songs were obviously of a non-family oriented nature, and characterised by sights of jiggling thunder thighs in cheap looking pink/red chamkee shorts, bad makeup and questionable dance moves. The initial astonishment led to uncontrollable laughter for hours, for said eng girls could not believe their eyes. It was quickly discovered that to mute the tv and watch these songs being danced in silence was even more hilarious, and this has now become a regular Saturday night practice when nothing more interesting is seen on tv.

It is considered to be a form of Laughter Therapy and is said to have great restorative properties for stressed out college girls. Must always be watched with a group of gal pals for maximum entertainment. Stupid comments once the tv has been muted are a must, as they serve to increase the level of hilarity. Enthu cutlet Naarth Indian girls who seemed to have had the most rudimentary knowledge of Kannada gave this ritual it's name.

Channels on which this phenomena can be enjoyed after 12 in the night : Sun tv, Udaya tv, Raj tv, Gemini tv, etc.

Warning : This ritual has very different effects on eng baiz. That is for someone else to define.

Usage

Priya : "Arrey yaar, nothing is coming on tv tonight. I don't know why tv channels don't show anything worth watching on weekends. So Boring! Now what?"

Shweta : "Oh well, at least there's Pornu Korree"

*takes remote and starts changing channels*

*Fifteen minutes later the neighbours call the police because the banshee type laughter emanating from the girls hostel scares the life out of their sleeping kids. Hostel auntie's thalle blows a big fuse and she disconnects the cable*
