Second only to your Ration Card and Birth Certificate in establishing all encompassing legitimacy in matters requiring burden of proof is the ubiquitous "Counterfoil".

The Counterfoil is the slip of paper on the other side of the perforations. It's the ticket to the stub, one of the two quantum coupled chits, and someone sternly holds the other. The two parts must inexorably be drawn together for bureaucratic balance to reign supreme.

Loose it and you are lost my friend. Present it promptly and the world is yours.

Usage

Sampath: "Good evening Doctor. How is my father?"
Doctor (also Sampath): "The surgery was a success and his body has accepted the Pig Valve. I tell you, he is a remarkable man! I am inclined to release him today itself..."
Sampath: "Excellent news Doctor! Thank you so much for everything. May I wheel him away immedaitely?"
Sampath: "Why, not. Just give the nurse The Counterfoil and you may take him at once."
Sampath: "What Counterfoil, Doctor? I have already arranged for the bill payment and everything."
Sampath: "That is all very well. But we require the chit we gave you as receipt for depositing your father."
Sampath: "Ayyo. I must have misplaced that."
Sampath: "Tsk tsk tsk. Now how will we know who you are... who he is... what is the relationship established..."
Sampath: "But I have been coming to visit him every day!!"
Sampath: "Eng bai, don't think too much of yourself. For your information, I have also come to regard him as my own father."
Sampath: "Wha..!!.....?"
Sampath: "Ok listen. This is bad news. But, if you cannot produce The Counterfoil as proof of progeny, please bring in triplicate copies of both Ration Cards, School Certificates, and Birth Certificates of both your parents. Then we will release Appa."

Country Kutha

\Country Kuth-tha\
9 0
Noun.
0

Definition

Essentially, a "stray dog." From the Hindi "Kutha" which means dog.

Any stray dog is called a Country kutha. Also applies to a dog of dubious parentage or any unrecognizable mongrel mix.

Country kuthas are most common in villages and bastis and have a distinct high pitched yowl that can be heard from even one km away. They also bark in chorus. If one starts, another one picks it up and they dont stop for at least half an hour.

Good for night security in villages areas. Bad for lone travelers fearful of their goolies.

Usage

Woman1: Ravi keeps adopting all these stray country kuthas. Some of them probably have rabies.
Woman2: Ravi IS a country kutha himself.
