Definition

Something that can blow your mind. Phodu is a killer movie, some real good butter chicken, a new bike in the market, a good curvy hot babe, or a handsome chikna fellow.
It is always something that can be described with other better words which have a greater impact and so it is used by people who are less articulate or do not understand the gravity of the situation.

Usage

Pinky: Hey Ramesh tune kakke ka chicken khaya kya? (Hey Rakesh did you try Kakka's chicken?)

Rakesh: Arrey maa ki.. kya phodu chicken hai! Baap re dimaag hil gaya kha ke! (Oh mother's.. what phodu chicken that be. Father of mine.. my head started spinning after having it.)

PDS

8 0
Abbreviation.
0

Definition

Public Distribution System.
The high watermark of a Welfare state achieved by modern India's netas.

Usually, in the depot, ration shop or society records say that you have already bought this month's quota of sugar, cooking oil, and kerosene even if you were all on a two-month pilgrimage.

The FPS (fair price shop) owner usually wears 10 gold rings and a gold chain that's as thick as a rock-climber's rope.

Big farmers, rice mills, transporters, ag. dept. officials, ministers, black marketers, adulteration professionals, and enforcement officials all have a slice of the pie. It's a lucrative business even for the kerosene vendor who goes door to door to deliver the welfare fruits to people. You can't argue with such great service or accuracy of mensuration employed.

Usage

PDS and the ration card has been critical and essential to every Indian.
Close to 5 decades the ration card had often been the only documentary evidence that you exist, you are a citizen, and you wouldn't even be able to get a gas connection, passport, driving license and many of the privileges without that little booklet.

So, whether or not you ate any food at all, you would acquire a ration card as soon as you set up a family, add every new member to it, forget to delete dead members from it, and keep it safely all the time in the almirah or behind a god's photo.

PPT

Noun.

Definition

PPT(Powerpoint presentation) is India's favourite software application for presentations and reports.

Such is its popularity that PPT is almost synonymous for a tangible document.

Given it is a useful tool to display and disguise the result of an experiment, investigation, or inquiry,PPT is extensively used across offices, B-schools,colleges and even high schools.In fact,a legitimate need for an MBA is to make fancy PPTs.

Complex formats offered on Powerpoint such as SmartArt ,WordArt,charts, tables are widely used for persuasive purposes.Additional elements such as background graphics and unpronounceable Font names are overused for decorative purposes.(e.g Estrangelo Edessa).

Usage

Client: You are yet to deliver a PPT on the Indian telecom study
Agency: We did share the findings last week.
Client: It is on Word.You really think i have time to read all that? Do you know how busy I am? I need a PPT!

Teacher: I'm giving you 5/10 on your Marketing presentation.
B-school student: Why?? It will screw my grades.And I thought you liked my presentation.
Teacher:I liked the point you were making,what I did not like was the background template and font spacing.Such a PPT will never work in the corporate world!

If you are not the upstanding pillar of society described above you will face her withering disdain. A fate worse than... say, imprisonment.

punjabi hiding behind degrees

This was a neologism coined by Vik B in Ann Arbor when he realized that his Punjabi friend Amit had developed a veneer of fake sophistication whilst getting his phd in political science... because in reality all Amit wanted to do was remove his academic garb and return to his roots as a crass Punjabi.

This acronym became so popular that other south-asian communities who grappled with the same identity issues (porki inside; phd outside) adopted it as well.

Usage

Amit is what I call a phd or a Punjabi hiding behind degrees. He waxes eloquent about dialectic reasoning but secretly yearns to hit on some kutthis, shake his kundi to some bhangra and get into a fight.
