Sometimes, it's possible to simply be born at the wrong time. Here, one doesn't mean born during the wrong era, though one can wish fervently that Brian Lara could have played in the era of T20 games and minted a fortune, or have competed more with Sachin Tendulkar for cricket glory. No, one means, say, that you were born on July 20, 1982 (Prince William) or November 1, 1973 (Aishwarya Rai). Timings are everything, whether we're talking about gents timings or ladies timings. You see, both Aishwarya Rai and Prince William are mangliks, born in the condition of Mangal Dosha, which is an astrological combination that occurs if Mars is in the 1st,2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th house of the Vedic astrology Ascendant chart. Then, gone case only. This has been proved by Vedic Science.

If you are a manglik, the angry astral effects of Mars will, according to Vedic astrology, make you a terrible spouse. You will sow disharmony in your wake. Your husband or wife might die. You yourself are virtually a walking soocide case. But wait! All is not lost. There is a cure.

If you marry a tree first, such as a Peepal tree, and then have it cut, OR marry a matka and then have it broken, the ill effects of your astrally doomed birthday are negated. Or, if you marry another manglik, the negative vibes you both exert on each other will cancel each other out. One doesn't know how this works egjactly, but one supposes that two fiery Martians experience what one can only read about in books (see kamasutra for a brief overview).

So, to summarize: two mangliks in love? Good. One manglik loving a non-manglik? Sadly, this is a formula for lau failure, unless you first find an aboreal roadside romeo, marry your dau off to it, then kill the tree. It's complicated, but what to say? WALTO.

Usage

Dishoom Dishoom: Would you marry Aishwarya Rai, even though she's manglik?
Mainmacha: Mad or what? Of course I would. All you have to do is find a tree...
Dishoom Dishoom: You do realize that she's already married, right? And that I was asking a hypothetical question? And that you continue to be a bachelor? And that your prospects lessen with every passing year?
Mainmacha: Fine, find me the tree.

The homely Kannada slang for homily parental reprimand peppered with wise advice, threats, inducements and exhortation to stop your wayward behavior once and for all.

The literal meaning of the word is, high worship with camphor or wick flames at the end of all devotional offerings and rituals at the temple.

In both cases, your head is bent in real or fake reverence throughout the session. You feel hot and cold at the same time. You resolve to make life-altering resolutions.

The problem with life-altering resolutions is they seem uplifting.
They give a sort of high. They make you addicted and make you go through everything you did to get there: Building up your carry-over bank balance of flunked subjects in school. Building up your bank balance of what others opine to be sins in life and you agree to that opinion except when you are utterly busy committing them.

Usage

No MangaLarthi can give a dumki student a pass to go to the next semester classes or a devotional exhibitionist a pass for heaven.

Mangalvaar means Tuesday. In the Hindu religion Tuesday is dedicated to Lord Hanuman and Lord Ganesh. Mangalwar takes its name from Mangal or Mars who rules the day and is considered to be a trouble maker in astrology. On this day, some people fast to ward off the harmful effects of Mangal.

You should not take any new steps on a Tuesday. If you did, you should not take a step back either on that day because you 'ayyayyoo!' are not supposed to initiate anything- a step forward or a step backward on a Tuesday.

There is no challenger to India when it comes to our superstitious nature. We are a Superpower in this depaltment.

Usage

" Look man, you have been avoiding paying me the 20 thousand bucks for the past two years. And you have brought it all to repay me. I appreciate it. But I refuse to accept it today, a Mangalvaar. Even if you don't pay me back in a year it's OK, but please don't bring it again on a Mangalvaar. Pleas, please, please!"
That's how I hallucinated hearing Hiralal telling me when I hallucinated having gone to repay his two year old loan.

Extremely revered and auspicious symbol of Hindu marriage. Comprises a little gold pendant strung on a thread, a gold chain or strings of black beads. Married women are required to wear it as long as their husbands live- not the other way round. One way of typecasting a woman as 'traditional' or traditional with modern outlook or 'modern' or 'post-modern' would be to inspect closely the nature of her relationship with the mangal sutra.
The mangal sutra is a very central artefact in saas bahu serials where the perennially suffering Bahu, in moments of utmost remorse and frustration, breaks and flings it while the her husband and mother-in-law look on in shock. The camera plays up the tenshan and drama by zooming in and out wildly on the intense facial expressions and fallen mangal sutra.

Usage

(Conversation between Paati & Meenakshi Mami at her granddaughter's wedding)
Paati: What and all we had to do to get awar Soumya to have that ceremony.. that girl was refusing to wear it (the mangal sutra) unless and until her husband also wears it!
Meenakshi Mami: Kadavule! then how you convince her?
Paati (calmly): I threatened with soocide, so she agreed.
