At the very core of every Desi, somewhere deeply embedded in a space between our kundi and our kundalini is the need to deconstruct the universe into samosa sized pieces of pure brilliance. Does not matter if you are SSLC failed or a topper. If you are brown, its your birthright to squint your eyes, gesticulate with practiced ease and chronically opine about yenithing, starting your low-orbit pontification with the simple word: Basically.

When "Basically" is invoked, the hand reaches out awkwardly for some mixture and black label the eyes twinkle prophetically and the mouth gets ready to yap yap yap.

Usage

Basically curdrice is a non-newtonian substance that can cause night-blindess if consumed in large quantities.

Baksheesh is a term used to describe tipping, charitable giving, and certain forms of political corruption and bribery in South Asia.

An author once sardonically described baksheesh as "lavish remuneration and bribes, rudely demanded but ever so graciously accepted by the natives in return for little or no services rendered."

Usage

Hey give some baksheeh man! I drove you all around Bangalore and you are only giving me Rs 50?
