Schoolkids in India had two sources of knowledge - the street and the guide. The street taught them how to survive, the street taught them right and wrong, the street took no prisoners, the street made them strong. The guide helped them clear examinations without reading the textbook.

The guide was a book that simplified stuff from the textbooks, often into bad English, answered all the questions at the end of a chapter, printed and solved past years question papers, model papers, and the like. Terribly minimal, terribly functional.

Extremely useful for Sanskrit, Hindi and regional languages because one could read the entire story in simple English and then give out general gyaan in the exam.

Usage

"What men, studied a?"
"Yes, ya."
"From textbook a?"
"Mad or what. Diamond Guide only, men. Jobless a to read textbook-gixtbook and all!"

The word is for 'proverb' in Kannada.
You would pronounce it like how you'd say gaw-they in English.
The rural folk have a 'gaade' for every situation and some of them are evergreen across generations and funny too.

Usage

'Ootakkillada uppinkaayi shaatakk sama' is a Kannada gaade which means ''the pickle you were not served with the meal when you really wanted is just worth pubic hair if served later''

If you want to sound wise, you can say in any and every situation 'Adeno gaade heLthaaralla hungey'( "like they say in some proverb") and you need not actually have any proverb in the mind when you say this. You are wise, you allegorized without any allegory.

It is an abbreviation for Glass Topowing. It was a method of copying engineering drawings. A lamp/light was placed below a glass pane (retrieved from nearby window). Above the glass pane, the original drawing to be was placed, and upon this was placed a fresh sheet, upon which the original material was traced. Like Topow, GT also has tenses such as GTing and GTed (past tense).

A holy book, "Geeta" often is the short form of Bhagvad Geeta, literally the "Song of God" in Sanskrit. Consists of the unveiling of Krishna's divine insights to Arjuna, amongst many other things.

-A girl's name.
-Not Sita. Sita is Sita wonly.
-One, you would readily put your hands on, but desist from marrying because somehow you think that too many people have put their hands on her (people often swear on the Geeta by putting their hands on the book).
-An ancient lie detector device, so ancient that it has stopped working. But film directors need them. They always use things ancient when their khopdi's do not work well with the modern,
-You have always had one, The same one your father had.
- Your son too is going to have one. All for the same reason: Keeping one; not using.

Usage

"Mi, Geeta per haath rakh ke kahoonga, ki mi jo kuch bhi kahoonga, sach kahoonga....."

(I put my hand on the Geeta and say that whatever I say will be the truth...)

Punjabi dance that is traditionally danced only by groups of women, to Punjabi folk music. Requires deft movements of the foot, and the folk songs more often than not depict a story. Each young lady takes turns to dance a solo, and the giddha ends when the last one has had a chance to move it in style.

Unknown to most, bhangra was traditionally a male dance, while giddha was it's counter part for the ladies to shake a leg. Bhangra has long since become gender-neutral and famous, while giddha is still limited to the villages of the Punjab. Think of a desi version of the Spice girls, dancing and singing at the same time in bright salwaar kameezes with gusto, and you pretty much have it.

Usage

Giddha is most often danced at traditional Sikh weddings, especially during the Mehendi ceremony.

While it refers to any person from the Maharashtrian (and Goan) community, it has come to be used as a derogatory term for a more crass, uncultured country bumpkin from the same region. Literally speaking, the term refers to a person from the Ghats (Sahayadri Ghats; a Ghaat is a hilly area). Not your usual suave SoBo that haunts the sports bar in Colaba. If he shows up at an art gallery, it is possible that vandalism may not be out of the question. Unless of course, the artist in question is a certain Mr. Thackeray.

Likely to call it Mumbai and glare at you for using the prior Anglicized name instead. Also see, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) vs. Victoria Terminus (VT) debate. Proud owner of the vada pav stall by the road. Equally proud member of the local Mitra Mandal. Unlikely to be friends with them Tamizh people from Matunga or the Bhaiyas from Virar.

Identified by his/her quintessential choice of Vermilion for the pop of color. White trousers and corresponding head-gear often complete the look. Safari suit for those with money in the co-operative bank. Inspired by the Angry Young Man, he will break into a fight at short notice. Lest one were to misconstrue him as boring, he will also break into a tapori jog in the middle of the streets, bringing traffic to a halt. All communication shall compulsarily end with the greeting "Jai Maharashtra!"

Usage

Senthil: "What ra? Why you push? This is local, not kabbadi ground"
Tukaram: "This general compartment. If you no wan't push, go first class. Aayla!"
Mani: "Chill Senthil. He will get off at Dadar. Bloody Ghaati!"
