As we lead up to the next elections, Feku Modi and Pappu Gandhi are aggressively promoting their platforms and approaches to leadership and their visions for country. Part of simplifying ones message to aam admi is to use catchy metaphors that stick. Modi is of the above mother there is no other school where abstract 'India' is Mother India. In a recent speech to to a group of women entrepreneurs, he dutifully mentioned all the markers in modern India that embody women empowerment – Amul, Lijjat papad, and Jasuben pizza

In contrast to Rahul Gandhi's vision of India as a "beehive," he made it clear that his India is mother India. To quote him:

"In our culture and heritage, mothers come above everyone else. 'Ma' evokes reverence - that is our tradition. We call 'Bharat'- our country - Ma... anything we hold in reverence we address as Ma,"

While this is all well and good, modern Indian women found it condescending and even backward. A reporter on the topic notes that:

"Modiji’s bharatiya naari is an entirely different breed, best epitomised in iconic ye olde Hindi film cliches: the gaon ki gori sweating over the hot chulha; demure housewife serving chai-paani to her hardworking patidev; long-suffering widow who looks for livelihood to feed her children; soft-hearted mother whose love extends to all of God’s creatures. Why talk to the real women in front of you, when you can wax eloquent about imaginary ones culled from fiction."

Usage

“It pained me when I heard one Congress leader’s speech calling India a beehive. For them, this nation could be a beehive but for us, this nation is our mother. This India is my mother" - Namo

Usage

Buy modrun bread, amul butter, onion, coriander leaves and green chillies. We will make bread omelet.

Connected closely with Traditional with Modern Outlook, but you'll never see this phrase in the matrimonial columns. This is the girl you don't want- because you can't take her home to meet the parents- will wear mini skirt - cooly blow cigarette smoke- has no idea how to wear a sari BUT- deep in her heart wants to make the best aaloo paranthas, wear maang mein sindoor and be housewife. Problem is that she can't admit all if this because she wants to be uber cool, but deep inside is paavam kutti.

Usage

do the needful and figure it out.

A 1957 epic movie in which actress Nargis Dutt plays the lead role- 'Mother India' - a paragon of female chastity and virtues.Sociological analysis reveals that the movie played a role in forging a new imagination for Indian nationalism, post-independence.

No annual day programme in Indian schools is complete without a (mostly) spaced-out looking, little mother india overseeing the performances. Dressed in a white saree and a crown holding the national flag, she stands still on an elevated platform, waiting for it all to end, patiently.

Usage

Music teacher (waving her hands): one-two-thri-start!!!
Choir (composed of squealing school students): Ohh Motharindiaaaa we aaaar your childrennnnn

Correct pronunciation is 'Madren Bread'.

It was the first ever machine made, machine sliced, machine packed bread that was sold in Bangalore. It came in paper packaging that had a blue, white & orange square design on it.

See, first of all we grew up with the idea that bread was 'fever food'. Only eaten when you were either ill or a gora. Then theres all that maida, sheesh. Simsimply if you eat bread that means you were upto no good. Okay, say you're STILL dyyying to eat bread despite knowing 'everything' about it. In that case, magggzimum you ate was hot-hot Iyengar Bakery Bread that was sliced in front of you. Madren Bread and all if you ate...ushoo, thats all!

As expected, Madren Bread (& other such) eventually won the Bread Wars. Hygiene & convenience it simms.

Usage

Ayyayyo, enoondre, our new neighbours are very forward people! Eating Modern Bread, putting liftick, wearing sleeveless..bedappa!
