Having a bad day? Someone getting on your nerves? Things not going your way?

Then try some Samosa Therapy!

Follow the steps below for instant happiness and contentment in the face of all things that bug you from here to Jhoomritalaiya.

1. Buy one dozen aloo samosas. Dunk four of these into mix of pudhina and imli chutneys, and devour while hot. Feel the taste of the crisp, golden fried maida mixing with the spicy aloo filling, and complimented perfectly by the minty-tamarindy chutneys. Ahaaaa!

2. Once the fabulous double carbohydrate combo of maida and potatoes hits your bloodstream and induces a feeling of well-being, log into Samosapedia. (If you haven't created a login id, eat off two more samosas and do so.)

3. Think of the funniest words/phrases/anecdotes you know. Try to channel your current annoyance or frustration into one of these. Make it as full of nyansanse things as possible. (Hint: you will know if you have succeeded if you start showing your 32 teeths and the person next to you thinks you look loony all of a sudden)

4. Type them into Samosapedia and submit. If someone has already defined them, fikar not I say. Just eat off two more samosas, and define away.

5. Feel all the negative vibes of your day dissolving under the influence of a High-Glycaemic Index snack and the involuntary chuckles that bubble up when you look at the utter rubbish you have just keyed in.

6. Finish off the last 4 samosas with a lighter heart and a happier countenance.

Don't forget to take one few pudhin hara.

Usage

Surdie Birdie : Thank God for Samosapedia!

Poori : Oh yes. I am a firm believer in the benefits of Samosa Therapy.

Surdie Birdie : Ey me too ya! Same pinch!

A state of being. A parallel dimension. A world where the use of bonkers expressions and nonsense English is feted, where the remembrance of things past fills you with a warm glow.

Side effects of plugging into this Matrix (for neologisms rather than Neo?):

1. a slow degeneration of the ability to be understood anymore by Samosaverse aliens.
2. inordinate amounts of time diverted towards creating Samosabites, when you ought to be gaining a PhD/earning a crust/bathing your children/putting out the fire in your kitchen when the tadka exploded....

Usage

Josh: Ever since Studmuffin plugged into the Samosaverse, he doesn't come to Koshy's only...
Ryan: Then what you thought? They don't have wifi means...?

Definition

A serious psychotic condition which once afflicted with, renders the patient "take nothing else seriously in life than the condition itself". The condition is also called 'samosapedia syndrome' but healthcare professionals scrupulously avoid this term as that term itself can exacerbate the condition in the patient. Presently affecting persons of South Asian origin, enigmatically the condition has no genetic basis. Origin appears to be India but no microorganism is yet discovered for the disease and any role of New Delhi super-bug, NDM-1 is ruled out. A more virulent bug than the deadly NDM-1 might be involved.

Symptoms:
-Decreased productivity at work but increased activity in bed.
-Though not always observed, an increased level of indulgence with intoxicants and stimulants can often be expected.
-Unmistakable symptoms include, sudden and excessive use of profanity in speech, inappropriate and vulgar gesticulations as if the sufferer reeks with things sexual.
-Foul body odor and bad breath indicative of the state of mind.
-Abrupt, unexplained, and untimely loud laughter is also common, misleading and tempting medical professionals to often diagnose an onset of schizophrenia.
-Changed social behaviors like taking liberties with bosses, co-workers, doctors and nurses of the opposite sex, is common.
-In older patients a sudden over-consumption of aphrodisiacs is also seen.
-Physically aggressive posturing is observed. But it has been conclusively established that this symptom is mere posturing, the probable cause being altered but false 'max-male' self image
Treatment:
No cure is yet discovered. However if isolating the patient is not possible, keeping a safe distance from the patient should be recommended to the family and co-workers to control the spread of the affliction, even though experts have ruled out its ability to spread by physical contact or proximity, the precaution ensures physical safety and better mental health of persons around the patient.
The line of treatment includes denying the patient access to the internet altogether, letting them do whatever they want to do rather than trying to counsel (proven never to work), taking care of all chores they were formerly doing, and vaccinating members of the family and co-workers by encouraging them to imitate the patient.
Prognosis: Bleak, bleak, and bleak.
Researchers hope to find a cure in about 3 years. But analysts say that the now endemic condition will turn epidemic by then and may turn any treatment developed by then useless, because the condition would have by then become an accepted standard of behavior across diverse communities.

Many reports that the medical community is refusing to see or come in contact with the sufferers is an unfounded rumor.
Look for regular updates.

Definition

A samosa is a stuffed pastry and a popular snack around the world. It generally consists of a fried or baked triangular, semi-lunar or tetrahedral pastry shell with a savory filling, which may include spiced potatoes, onions, peas, coriander, and lentils, or ground beef or chicken. The size and shape of a samosa as well as the consistency of the pastry used can vary considerably, although it is mostly triangular. Samosas are often served with chutney.

When eaten in large quantities it can make you mental. When accompanied by jin jak music, it can make you sexy. It is the life-giving force of the sub-continent.

Preferably consumed with masala chai, ketchup, monsoon rains and one ciggy

Usage

Ramu: I ate off three plates of samosas fat-a-fat
Nasir: Bloddy Bugger couldn't even save one for me? Ok won't even give you one bite of my idli

You find Samosapedia online and a shiver runs down your spine. You scream "This is bombaat!" and are on the keys like a mongrel in a rubbish heap; adding words, suggesting better definitions, laughing uproariously at memories from a tangible past. You are a contributor. You are a Samosapedian. (orchestra strikes up...)

Usage

You can take the mosa outta Samosa but you can't take the ape outta the Samosapedian.

Definition

A Samosapedian is a contributing member of the Samosapedia community. The ideal Samosapedian does not take life too seriously, loves words and celebrates the quirkiness of South Asian culture.

The perfect Samosapedia entry:
1. Is funny and irreverent
2. Avoids hate
3. Captures pronunciation, part of speech, usage, root language, related words and regional fields
4. Links to other existing or potentially new entries (both in the definition and usage fields; wrap any word with square brackets to make it linkable -- that is, sandwich the word between " and "").
5. Makes Logonathan salivate

Ultimately if you behave like a porki we will treat you like one. If you act like a hero, the community will reward you with high LPW scores.

Usage

You can take the pedia out of the samosapedian but you can never take the samosa out of us.
