pao comes from the portuguese word for bread....i'm half a pao (Mangalorean catholic) so i know :) also it has nothing to do with invoking the good lord's help as you have described.

Usage

has come to be identified with catholics/christians beyond bandra...mainly because catholics/christians from across communities eat 'pao' or bread...

Definition

At any Goan bakery, the oft-chanted mantra is - "maka pao dhya" (Gimme some pao bread)...Goans carried the same to Bombay, out of sheer habit, asking the baker to give them the pao-bread! Over time, it shortened itself to makapao, denoting a Goan Christian usually. Further shortened to Mac.

Usage

That makapao thinks he is a body builder only! One fighter punch I'll give him...

and

That Sandra from Bandra will go out with a mac only, no. What men! Aaks, no?!

Definition

Term used for a person of Goan origin in Mumbai. Often potrayed to have a last name such as Fernandes, D'Costa or D'Souza. That guy in the Bollywood movie who is always drunk and whose speech has a perennial slur. Origins of the term are fuzzy with one school of thought suggesting that it refers to the fact that most bakeries (and their bakers) have goan roots. Paao means bread in Konkani. Some suggest it refers to the 'help me god' exclamation used by the community.

Usage

Jignesh: "Where are you headed?"
Homi: "To Bandra man"
Jignesh: "What, you going to meet Sandra from Bandra or what?"
Homi: "No man, I have this maka paao friend from Xaviers..."
Jignesh: "But of course"
