In many South Indian states, your 'kidney' refers to your brain. If you're using it well, it will be referred to quite properly as 'brain' & you'll never hear anything but the highest praise. But beware! If youre not putting it to good use, the word 'kidney' will be substituted for the lacking grey cells & you will thereafter be accused of (a) not having one (b) sitting on it (c) it being perplexingly located at your knees (d) needing a transplant (e) not looking hard enough for a donor, and etcetera.

Usage

Mahalakshmi: Ayyo enoondre!. I served you Tiger's food for dinner & gave him yours by mistake!
(by dhi bye Tiger is the family pomerian dog)
Kengalmurthy: Thhu! Kidney is not there for you? I will commit divorce!
Mahalakshmi: ayyo, enoondre, sorry sorry one plate poori! Tomorrow I will make chicken biryani & buy Dharwad peda for you, Mother promise
Kengalmurthy: *calm-downing* Okay okay, leave it, mistake can happen for anyone. It was very tasty anyway. i also ate it off, labak labak. Haw haw haw

Definition

Book worm, Gandhi, Studious. What makes him/her such?
-A student who aspires for a girl/boy friend or a chick/boye but can not muster enough courage to take the first step of asking.
-A student inwardly jealous of the Porkis for the jolly they make but outwardly shunning the Poli activities solely due to parental fear rather than choice. "Amma will peel my skin"
-A student who has not been baptized into the real world because s/he somehow escaped propper hazing or ragging and has created and lives in a world of their own.
***
That said you should know what constitutes their world right?
-Books, Books, Books and more books.
Only that's all?
-Where are you? Books can be all!
They read subject books most of the day.
If they get bored with chemistry text book they read chemistry guide. If they get bored with chemistry guide they read chemistry question bank. If they get bored with that, they read chemistry notes or else a friend's notes or else they just stare at the neat and clean labels on each of their chemistry books, wondering why they are not able to enter the physical world. " I think nothing is wrong with me. Momma says so too"

Once they are done with subject books(on a typical day they never are done with subject books) on a rare occasion, they take other books up. Like a film magazine or another lying at home and stare at the sexy models in the ads for an hour or so. They never read an article or story. They are scared they may wander off into the real world by that adventure and get lost in that unknown world.

They never ask a question. They act like input-only devices. Once every semester or so they ever output anything(daily kakkoos and other bodily discharges excepted).

They make good software programmers, accounts officers, and more than all that, they make good harmless citizens or prajes.

Every momma aspires for a Kudmi daughter-in-law or a Kudmi son-in-law, but few friends enjoy them.

Usage

Mona; Di Donna, What happened to Rhona Is she alive? Haven't seen her in two months. Did she move from our street or what?
Donna: A Kudmi has no death sweetie. Because a Kudmi has no life either. She will be sitting in her room by-hearting the whole bloody text book. Exam time naa?
