Definition

Ubiquitous word used to describe an ordinary version of a product or service.

Across the consumer industry, there is typically more than one version of an available product. This is actually very common since class divides dictate a segmented market. In its growing-up years, socialist India made sure that every product or service was available to all, and there would always be a watered-down version.

Of course, across the food service industry for instance, it is simply a way of offering you a plain, "vanilla" version without the extras.

Literally, ordinary, plain, simple.

You get what you pay for.

Usage

On a menu:

Ghee Masala Dosa - A rice and lentil crepe with loads of butter and a spicy potato and onion masala.
Masala Dosa - A rice and lentil crepe with a spicy potato and onion masala.
Saada Dosa - A rice and lentil crepe.

In a movie theatre:

Balcony ticket - A ticket at the upper stalls, the second level of seating, at a height - a vantage point for families and "decent" folks.
Ordinary ticket - A ticket at the lower stalls, preferred by wayward youths and lafangas. Colloquially, a saada ticket.

In trains:

First A/C - luxury seating and sleeping berths in spacious, private coupes, with courteous, servile attendants. With Air-conditioning.

Second A/C - seating and sleeping berths - no coupes, but spaces separated by curtains, with courteous attendants. With Air-conditioning.

Third A/C - seating and sleeping berths - no coupes, but rather congested in spaces separated by curtains, with intermittent vendors who travel with you on the train. With Air-conditioning.

Second Class Sleeper - seating and sleeping berths - in congested spaces with intermittent vendors who might hop on to the train at various stops. No Air-conditioning. Sometimes referred to as saada.

Second Class Sitting - A saada compartment. The Real Deal. You buy a very cheap ticket. No seating or sleeper berth reservation. Ordinary wooden seats with no cushioning. Very crowded, with possibly space for only one human foot each.

A cheaper, saada version exists for nearly everything - cellphone plans, internet, hotel rooms, soaps, various food items, electronic products, falana, dimka.

Look carefully - it might just be cheap and best!

Definition

Hyderabadi phrase used to describe shamelessly "borrowing" something for a long time from someone sometimes with sleight of hand. The difference between borrowing and setting is that you generally get to keep the stuff after "setting" it.

The word also has a connotation of "don't ask how the person got the stuff in question." But you always ask since there is no way someone in Hyderabad just wears something like a Yankees baseball hat for example.

Typically comes into play when someone is rocking some suspiciously awesome swag.

Usage

Friend 1: Arre bhai, kya masth hai boss? (Bro nice hat you've got there?)
Friend 2: Aise hi ... setting kar liya boss! (Got it ... just like that with some setting)
