Maks like kabaddi is a national sport in India. Little desi enthu cutlets practice this sport from a very early age. Initially we are awkward at it and might get stuck at two ones za two. But we quickly master our sums through joint study and choop pencils and devote ourselves to a degree in PCMB, a precursor to IIT.

Then there is Shakuntala Devi. Mother of Indian Mathematics. Known as the 'Human Computer' she could tell you the 23rd root of a 201-digit number or correctly multiply two 13-digit numbers in the time it takes your average desi to say Eksath Basath!

She expired last week. RIP Shakuntala Devi.

Usage

Arjun: Shaq is to basketball as Shak(untala) is to Indian mathematics
Prabhu: Good one I say!

Point well taken :) "Mother of Indian Mathematics" and all! Full storyline here. Still, I thought the Shaq / Shak(untala) joke was funny.

Please excuse, I say. i must taking much objection. Shakuntala Devi was a great Mathematician like B.B. Mama was a great cricket player. She had prodigious calculating abilities, but that does not a Mathematician make.

Heard this confident declaration from a taxi driver this morning. He was giving me the location of a certain office that I needed to visit in a 43 storey tower.

Dayymn! Didnt have the presence of mind to ask him if he'd categorise a rose as a 'floor'!!

Usage

Me: Where is 'BlahBlah & Cumpny' located, bhayya?
Him: *pointing* On the second flower of this building madam.
Me: I will give address, will you send me one rose-floor for Valentine's?
Him: *blushing* Hawwww!!!

Commonly used rule in gully cricket where if the batsman hits the ball over a certain obstacle or boundary the batsman is credited with Six runs but is also declared Out. This unique and innovative rule helps level the playing field especially in today's environment where gully cricket has become so much of a batsman's game...

Usage

Team captain 1: "Dai tell the rules da...."
Team captain 2: "Ok, no single batting, one pitch one hand, no body catch,no back runs,batting team has to give keeper and if the ball crosses Jakku uncles compound it is Six and out.."

Not one half of a jazz quartet.

Two of the most mispronounced words in our colourful land, doing jugalbandi in a term that connotes shamelessness, lack of moral fibre, an excess of gore (usually of the Kissan tomato ketchup variety) and all round titillation. When applied to summarise a new flick that's just been released, it practically guarantees box office success.

The direct opposite of Bengali art cinema shot in low light with a hand held camera and method actors.

Usage

Dev: Hey, what an enthu cutlet you are. Went off for first day first show of that new Porki Talkies fillim itsimms! How it was?
Shyam: Full paisa vasool. So much sax and voilins means bastard child of Debbie Does Dallas and Kill Bill. What's not to lau?

Definition

Refers to the Handshake - a short greeting ritual in which two people briefly grasp each other's right hands. (The grasp could be firm or limp depending on one's personality.) In most cases, it is also accompanied by a brief up and down movement of the grasped hands - an action that is not as obscene as it sounds. Also frequently used to thank someone.

Usage

Mother to child: Uncle-aunty ge shakehand kodu! Literally, give shakehand to 'uncle-aunty'!
Man to dog: Shakehand, Tommy. Shakehand! Good boy!
Man to friend: Shakehand kodi, saar! Thumba olle newsu - magan maduve anthe! Let's shake hands, sir! This is great news - I hear your son is getting married!
Man to boss: (While shaking hands) Thank you, saar, thank you.
