Puncture.

The state where an automobile may be rendered motionless due to a perforation in the tyre.

Usage

Mr Kulkarni, evil genius, drives zapak to his destination - Parliament Avenue, New Delhi - the one thing that lies between him and his ultimate goal, Emperor of the World.

Suddenly, something lands splat on the roof of his Land Rover. It is Spiderman.

Momentarily, a powerful web starts surrounding the Land Rover and it begins to revolve rapidly. Mr Kulkarni resists - he drives on, sideways even - Parliament house not too far away now. But when destiny conspires against you, no one, not even Mr Kulkarni has a chance.

The Rover finds itself bang in front of a 2 inch nail. It holds itself back for a moment, and then - cuts right through Mr Kulkarni's world class Ziptron tyres, and his Rover screeches to a stop.

Mr Kulkarni: Gaadicha pumcher jhaalay. (The tire is punctured.)

In the bad ol' days of trunk calls and telegrams, there existed a facility called the phonogram. When folks got hatched, matched or despatched, you sent a phonogram by dialling 173 and giving your address and the recipient's, then a number code like 17 or 12. If the operator's hearing was wokay and the line was clear, you wouldn't end up with a message like "Congratulations on the distinction conferred on you" arriving at a house of mourning. Other examples that come to mind are "Wishing you both a long and happy married life" "May heaven's choicest blessings be showered on the young couple" "Long live the Republic" etc etc

It was a matter of pride for a young couple to carry trunk-loads of phonograms with them on their honeymoon, to be read at leisure.

Usage

Ayyo, for Shreelatha's wedding, she received so many phonograms that her cousins ended up with laryngitis, because they had to read each one out aloud to the family.

If you see this written on a tire hanging from a tree or nailed to a pole, there is a good chance you already have nails in your tire and are looking for their services. This is the place to go where all vehicle tubes are invariably old and need to be replaced with either 200 Rs duplicate or 400 Rs Original ones. It costs extra for your friend to seat the puncher expert himself on his bike and bring him over to the crime scene.
These omnipresent signs can range from punter to punchure to the ridiculously rear (I swear it exists, I have seen it once!) puncture.

Usage

Dude! Yesterday only outside Tavern, I paid 200Rs and got it fixed. Now again I have to find a puncher shop.
