So imagine you're in Kerala transacting business of some sort..selling a piece of land, perhaps, or getting your daughter admitted to Injineering College; opening a bank account or buying a sim card. Whatever the nature of your business, 99.99%, the authorities will ask for proof of something-or-the-other...birth certificate/ 10std marks card/ degree certificate/ residence proof (oh, please submit ration card for this? I *love* ration cards, they're simply the BEST!)/ death certificate/ surgery proof.. they can quite daringly ask for yanything & yavrything.

Don't let the inconvenience irritate you my dear co-brothers. You just koitly go to the nearest STD booth with your virginals, ask the chettan to place it upside-down in the large clunky machine squeezed somewhere in the corner, and out it comes through the other side:

The Searocks copy!!

Usage

Venu uncle: Suku! Sukuuuu!! Loak the door, I'm going to the shoap to buy beedis!
Sukumari aunty: Take one searocks coapy of your passport & go. They ask these days for beedi purchase .
Venu uncle: Aing!!!!

Respectful form of address to males. This term has been gaining a lot of currency lately, perhaps following the TV ad featuring Abhishek Bachchan for a cell phone network. Clearly, "sir" isn't respectful enough in our hierarchy conscious society. I am waiting for the equivalent in the Tamil word, which could be "saar aiya."

Usage

"What an idea sir-ji."

Definition

Short for Shah Rukh Khan, the biggest Bollywood phenom since Amitabh Bachchan, and possibly also the one with the biggest ego. (Well, that's contentious, since Salman Khan is also in the running for the latter prize.) It is befitting that the names of his films are often also abbreviated: see DDLJ, DTPH, KKHH, K3G, KANK, OSO, etc.

Usage

(Squealing Sonali to her BFF): Duuuuuuuuuuuuude, I soooooo wanna see the new SRK film again!!! He's soooooo hot in that item number with Deepika, man!
