There are many theories about the origin of the word posh. One theory is that posh is in fact an acronym, standing for Port out, Starboard home. It refers to the fact that on sea voyages between Britain and India, the most comfortable (in terms of being cooler) and therefore most expensive cabins on ship would be on the port side going out, and the starboard side coming back. It was further suggested that the Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company issued tickets for the more expensive cabins on this route with the letters P.O.S.H., and that this is where the origin lies.

Usage

Last time I saw Sanju he was wearing bata chapels and acting like a porki. From where to where he has come. Now look at him with his gold watch looking so posh.

Definition

A reverent term for anyone from the land of Five rivers (Punjab), most typically used by and for our big-hearted, hard-working, turban-sporting brothers - the Sardars. Not to be confused with Hindi word for mischievous, this courteous phrase implies almost the opposite of mischief. Paaji is the Punjabi equivalent of Uncleji or Bhaisaab in other parts of the Northern plains.

Usage

Ram: O Paaji, how is the match?
Mr.Singh: Oye puttar, Bhajji is on a hattrick.
Ram: Balle balle

Believe me PCs were all over Bangalore and the rest of Karnataka, even before PC, PC-XT, and PC-AT were in vogue.

Well, I am trying to make a fool out of you. An absolutely unnecessary thing na?

These PCs stand for law enforcement. they lie for law enforcement, they sit on law enforcement, they walk the law enforcement. The Police Constables.

Usage

Sub-Inspector(SHO) to you: " Mister, whoever you are, I am very busy right now. I have to go to Vidhan Soudha, The minister has asked me to go there. Any way, what do you want?. Oh. I am in a hurry , Whatever is it that you want , It is not possible. Don't you understand?. OK OK , can you come tomorrow? I will attend to it tomorrow. Whatever it is. I will. Wait, Listen. Give whatever you have brought to the PC at the last desk on the left side. Are you a government official. I haven't seen you earlier?"

You: "I am your brother Rakesh's friend, He sent some birthday gift for you. I work with him in Chennai, So, I was....."
Sub-Inspector: "Oh Sorry, Sorry! Have a seat. Will you have some coffee? When did you......."

Its hard to explain pecos. Its an institution, a relic, a cultural heritage site (well, it should be) and mostly the most dilapidated pub in bangalore. to be a true bangalorean, you need to hate the name bengaluru, talk about the 90's when the IT boom just started, be nostalgic about brigade road and have had one of your first beers at pecos.

Pecos serves only beer, popcorn and an array of awesome food that is surprising for the place. the bar counter is filled with cassettes, not fancy bottles and the walls are littered with posters. there is one graffiti of frank zappa taking a dump.

there are more upmarket spots from the same management. Mojos and Stones. but pecos is the original.

Usage

gubbe: mom we'll go to pecos to put beer?
guggu: sure mom but chicks will be there at stones da...
gubbe: arty chicks will be there da, they'll come from koshys

Pudungi
12 1
Noun.

Definition

Punjabi word for the turban that is a symbol of Sikhism. Worn only by Sikh males in India, although certain sects, especially those in other countries,require women to sport a simpler version on their heads as well.

To touch or pull a Sikh's turban is considered a huge insult, often inviting a fearsome wrath from these otherwise bindaas people. All folks who are looking for cheap thrills and contemplating such death-defying stunts are requested to make funereal arrangements well in advance. Asking too many questions about a Sikh's turban is also considered annoying, so if you're overtly curious, shut your gob, eat some oota and try not to stare.

Usage

"Khotey, if you touch my pagg, you're going to be tomorrow's lunch!!!"

Short for Poor Joke. A PJ is almost always an impromptu bad pun. Every group of friends in India has one person who issues a stream of PJs and is known for this dubious ability.

What many people who don't get PJs don't realise, is that it's not the joke itself that's supposed to be funny, but the fact that something so bad is being presented as a joke. It's a meta-joke, if you're into pricky nu-blogger speak.

"How do you call a Digga rabbit?"
"How?"
"Banni."
"PJ! Actually... that's a pretty good one."
