God Promise is a phrase invoked when ones credibility is at stake and one needs to "swear on god" to display truthfulness. Accompanied by a hand action involving pinching of the throat. But does not convey the same level of gravitas as mother promise probably because we have such a large pantheon of Gods (pissing off a few is ok).

Usage

Raj: Are you sure you are not putting kai with Sita?
Manu: God promise man! Not doing any such thing.
