Kind of a tacit rule of thumb that Indian film heros adopt while wooing. This involves outrageous behavior like stalking, peeping at the heroine, playing pranks on her, embarassing her in public, writing lau letters to her, eve teasing her, and even slapping her butt (in short everything that will qualify as 'persistent harrasment'?).The heroine, in the initial phase responds with outrage and anger, but for some elusive reason postpones doing anything about it.
The tables turn when the villain enters the scene and engages in the 'real' harrasment. The hero comes to the rescue- flexes his muscles, does dishoom-dishoom . The heroine looks on with wide-eyed admiration and the seeds of lau are sown in her heart. All memories of the hero's former porrki behavior are erased along with any capabilities of discernment. This is followed by intense courtship, lau marriage etc.


Seema: Hey, is that Mohanlal slapping that girl's butt in that song?!!
Ashwathy: Ess, but he is in lau with her and is simbly playing with her, ya. later, she will also lau him. He is actually a policeman in plain romandic, no?!!

Watch mohanlal in the act of persistent harrasment here:
(Note the but-slapping at the end of the video)

The word was more commonly heard in the socialist, pre mall and MTV era, and is now used almost exclusively by the over 60 crowd, who are appalled at the rampant materialism of the younger generation.

A "purchase" somehow seems like more of an investment than something that you would "buy", and therefore this word has the additional effect of putting a brake on unabashed consumerism.


You are coming from the market is it? Please purchase some Nirma washing powder next time.


Oh, so many bags you are carrying. What and all you have purchased?
