Definition

in the days of manual and electro-mechanical telephone exchanges, there were a limited number of circuits between cities. Thus if you wanted to speak to your Suzie in Bombay, you had to book a trunk call. Sooner or later, the operator will get Suzie on line for your talking pleasure. Sometimes, they would forget, but hey you could call them right back and request it again.

Also

The call of nature when it comes from the trunk, a word play for a long absence. Someone having to go make a trunk-call is the euphemism for a potty break.

Usage

Fayaz: Kya re mafiq, trunk-call book kiya so? Meri begum Hyderabad mei wait kar-ri so!
Pasha: Lagaya so Fayaz bai, abich nahi aaya so.
Fayaz: mafiq, phir call kar re! urgent bol unne! urgent!!
