Gulti

\Gul (as in gul-abi) - ti (tea)\
11 19
Noun.
1

Definition

Originally the word 'Telegu' backwards, 'Gulti' is now used to refer to locals of Andhra Pradesh in a derogatory manner, and is now widely considered as short for 'gaand ulti' (suggesting that the locals have buttock-like faces and eat from their anus instead)

'Gulti' has originated from the much overrated engineering hostel culture

Usage

Mohit: Behenchodh, Maths portion ho gaya?
Rahul: Gandu, do I look like a gulti to you? I have been watching HIMYM the whole day.

Much loved surdie nickname, given to roughly every fifth boy born into a sardar family. One of many strangely English ones preferred in Punjab, this one in particular betraying India's eternal love affair with gold.

But what's it's etymology you wonder?

Yaar, Thatandoldonask.

Usage

If gold did not exist, we Indians would have invented and used it yanyways

Sona, Shona, Thangam, Bangaru...what and all we call it and where and all we use it..
We smelt it to create jewelry and melt it to add flakes on sweets
Incoming Gelf returns bring gold biskits and outgoing new brides take 30 Savarans with them
Temples proudly display their thinly gold covered spires for miles around and then quietly hide the remaining Re100,000 Crore chunks of it under the sanctum sanctorum

Some day, when our GDP will make us the richest nation in the world, we may decide to actually pave the entire golden quadrilateral in, what else

Usage

India, with about 615 tons valued at around $35 Billion is surprisingly only the 12th largest gold holder in the world, but is rising pretty quickly up the rankings.
Also these folks, it simms, have not really visited any Indian wedding. They may change their estimate very quickly

Gulti is a slang used to denote a Telugu person. It originated a few years ago as Telugus started swarming in the US on F-1 visas.
It can be used as a noun or an adjective as it may indicate a person or act as a descriptive word too.
Gulti, although referred to as Telugu said in reverse, doesn't actually sound that.
In reference to same, in a US university full of Indians, people not belonging to Andhra Pradesh can be called Non-Gultis.
Over time, "Gulti" was started to be used to denote certain habits and life-styles practiced by Telugu people. However, it should be noted that it is not used as a foul-word.

Usage

All my room-mates are Gultis.
Vamsi is probably the most popular Gulti name.
Look at that mess; you have such a gulti lifestyle.
