It's a sound on Indian TV.
So by mistake you switch to a "serial" on TV expect this sound to fuck your ears repeatedly. Apparently when something dramatic is happening there is a need to pan to every characters face in the story and play this sound while they "act".
Very much loved.
Can be used when you want to bring drama in to your mundane boring gay real life.

Usage

Anal Bondhopadyay - Sorry Sags, I don't think I can live with you anymore. You are just boring and sad. You bring no joy and just carry around a sense of misery and dullness about you.

Shagorika Kundoo - Hey, I'm cool man. I know you are fucking that 60 years old maid. I'm anyways in love with the newspaper-wallah and we are moving in together.

DC

7 1
Abbreviation.
0

Definition

Deputy Commissioner in Karnataka, District Collector or Deputy Collector in many other states, as powerful as high voltage Direct Current could be.

DCs are a British raj's legacy, and one of the mosht powerful of all bureaucratic jobs in the world! Really!

They can shake MLAs and most district level big shots in all and any fields business or service. Normally and sensibly so, DCs and Party bosses of the district(both ruling and opposition) are warm to each other. DC has the certain knowledge that today's ruling party neta was yesterday's opposition neta and the cycle goes on. He needs them, and they need him.
So with the town's filthy-wealthy, landlords, miners, business peoples, jurists, judiciary, police(the entire police force of the district is subordinate to him), NGOs, religious leaders( he is the trustee for all HIndu temples of the district). Even journos stand up and bow and show fear and respect and reverence and admiration to a DC like his servants would,when he arrives on the scene.

Besides executive power, DCs have magisterial and semi-judicial powers. They literally control everything that happens in a district.

In simple terms DC is God more or less. Probably more.

The running rate for posting as a DC to a plum or green-pasture district is around 2 to 5 crore rupees. I don't think god even paid just one pink Gandhi note to get that job.

Usage

If a DC retires without any corruption cases being filed against him, it just means that his PR had been always very good and nothing else.

Let me put it this way: your pancakes are a derivative of our dosa :)

Dosa is made with a rice & urad dal batter. This batter is spread on a heated tava or pan with the help of a large round spoon. Ghee or vegetable oil is generously drizzled along its circumference to prevent it from sticking to the tava. (Oh the heavenly aroma of the dosa sizzling in ghee...mmmmmmm! It had you runnning in from the street where you were playing lagori with your friends, & eating the hot-hot dosa straight off the pan, remember?)

Ideal accompaniments are chutney & sambar! Also tastes awesome with any South Indian chicken or mutton curry.

A Masala Dosa is the plain dosa's slightly more entertaining real brother. It's a (usually) large, crisp dosa painted on the inside with bright red chilly-garlic chutney, stuffed with a spicy potato sabzi & folded over. This is then served in a steel plate with bowls of coconut chutney & sambar.

Finger-lickin' good!

Usage

'A' for Ayyayyo
'B' for Bablimas
'C' for Chaddi
'D' for Dosa!

Disco

\Dis-Co\
5 1
Abbreviation.

Definition

Not to be confused by a usual Discotheque, where people usually booze and dance. DisCo stands for "Disciplinary Committee" (and hence DisCo) which is a governing body in most of the Universities and engineering colleges across the country, for taking Disciplinary action against students involved in malicious activities like doping, beating up the guard while drunk, tease girls, ragging juniors, sexual harassement, mob fight, and oh! cheating in exams too (though that was the primary motive at the beginning). However, the primary agenda diminished as we stepped into the 21st century and most of the geek men/women now, who are out of college, brag in their facebook pages that they were once actioned upon by the DisCo, as if it were a matter of pride, and some wish that those DisCo days are back being a bit too nostalgic. DisCo has its own wannabes and its own victims who suffered for a not so noble cause. After all, its a matter of pride!!

Usage

Cricketing term for a batsman's score of "zero". Usually used without preceding article ("a"). Televised cricket broadcasts will frequently accompany a close-up of the embarrassed face of the batsman in question with a cheesy animation of a duck in full cricket gear waddling about crying at the bottom of the screen.

Usage

Common man's term for the amazing VCP or a VCR. Most of the common class could only afford to take one on hire during the holidays and watch movies non-stop until your eyes were blood red. The most popular brand of the time was Akai and both the brand and the word "deck" could be used interchangeably. The deck would usually facilitate movies for the neighbours as well, all in your house off course.

Usage

May Day holiday is coming ra, tell you father to get a deck no... we'll watch some movies. Geetha will also come ;)
