Tailor and iron-wala friendly lingo for a saree-blouse. Does not mean a jacket in any western apparel sense of the word (those jackets are just "suits").

It is important for good mamis to always have extra jacket-material (usually 2by2 material cotton material bought at Luz corner) at home because they make excellent take-away gifts when married women and girls of marriageable age (16-21) visit. Nobody uses these jacket pieces, of course. They get recycled to other married women and girls of marriageable age (16-21).

Usage

Radha Mami: Chitra, why don't you wear that red saree that ambujam chitti gave you for that sumangali prarthanai?

Chitra: Amma, please. I have no matching jacket for that saree!

The Indian head wobble. Justing comes from "adjusting" to a situation by nodding and shaking head from side to side at the same time.The motion consists of a side-to-side tilting of the head in arcs along the coronal plane. It is a unique Indian mannerism which is "just" as it is and which reflects a view of the world that is also uniquely Indian. One could say it shows a more philosophical view of existence where one is not necessarily in control of the karmic forces of destiny and nature and one merges into or adjusts to the demands and requirements of a world that does not necessarily make sense at times. Justing is adjusting to the world at large, neither a yes or no but a non verbal statement that says "The world is a it is and yes i think i understand and though I am not in control of the world I think things will be okay but lets see, also."

Usage

American: Please go to the market and make sure you are back by noon!

Sarathy the driver responds by justing.

American: Is that a yes or no?
Sarathy: Yes madam.
american: See you at noon then.
Sarathy: Too much traffic madam.
American: But you just said you could be back in time! I have an appointment!

Sarathy responds by justing.

Quirky guys found in hostels of Engineering colleges with an extraordinary ability to arrange any request in a jiffy even at the dead of night. Quite obviously the request are limited to cigarettes, bluefilm, lecture notes, porn magazines, and books.

One of the most dreadful weapon in Indian hands, feared by west as an Indian can do virtually anything with that. The country has said to be 'running' on it since independence. It can make a broken plane fly, defunct TV play program, rusting car run like a limo, ailing patience sprint like Ben Johnson. Most importantly, it can get you admission in almost all the colleges in the country. If in India, when even the Gods refuse, go and find Jugaad.

Usage

Omnipresent. Omnipotent : Govt Offices, workplaces, workshop, garage, hospitals, colleges, any place which could be touched by air and water.

In essence, jugaad is a tribute to native genius, and lateral thinking. It means "can do." It means where there's a will, there's a way.

Jugaad is also a locally-made motor vehicle used in small villages as a means of low cost transportation in rural India. Jugaad literally means an improvised arrangement or work-around, which has to be used because of lack of resources.

It can mean an innovative fix, sometimes pejoratively used for solutions that bend rules, or a resource that can be used as such or a person who can solve a vexatious issue. It is used as much for enterprising street mechanics as for political fixers.

Usage

Vikram displayed such Jugaad the other day. He used his comb-in-back-pocket to pick the lock on the his dad's liquor cabinet granting us access to some sakkath Old Monk rum.
