Definition

Just when you think Indians couldn't get enough by calling someone naked "nanga", they have to add "punga" to create that infant-like approach to diminish the reputation of young boys and girls roaming around their house naked.

This name-calling is also recalled back when parents click photographs of their nanga punga children and show it to them a few years later.

Usage

Mom: Shee, beta, why are you roaming around nanga punga?
Dad: Hahaha, shame shame poppy shame all the girls know your name! I will click one photo.

*after 15 years*

Son: Dad, here's my girlfriend. I lau her.
Dad: Come here come here, look at his nanga punga photos!
