Definition

To chat with girls (usually on topics of no particular significance)

Origin: In Chennai, at either Marina or Bessie beach, couples who space themselves like repelling magnets, whispering sweet-nothings in each others ears, wistfully gazing at the lapping waves as they hug the shore are usually rudely interrupted by 'kadlai-sellers' (boiled peanut vendors) with "Kadlai, saar?"

PS: 'The Marina' sounds posh as I write but I guess this is due to space and time away from reality.

Usage

Mams, Ramesh kadlai pottu-irukan.
Friend, (that) Ramesh(-no), is talking to girls.

Roasted groundnut salesmen by the beach are often known to use the ladle/scoop to scrape the empty pan to give illusion that they have lots of business which attracts customers who may think they will get something hot and fresh. Thus when you have an ulterior motive (maybe kissing up to someone or flirting) you are said to "put kadalai".

Mangalore, Kudla is the popular alternate name for the Karnataka port city in 'Tulu' the native language of the region.

Usage

" Yeeru Kudladu Irperaa?" (Are you going to be in Mangalore?)

Tulu is a popular and ancient folk language with its own rich culture and heritage. It contains flavors of Kannada, Tamil, and probably other southern languages. But it is a powerful rustic and distinct language. It has no script of its own. Speakers of 'Tulu' language apparently have great sense of humor. They laugh really loud. Almost like the yakshagana characters.

I hope some 'Tuluva' samosapedian will post some nice entries and enlighten us more.
