Colour dress

\kallar dress\

Noun.
0

Definition

Regular clothes you can wear to school, as opposed to the school uniform. The school uniform in India is seen as boring and dreary, while the colour dress, as the term suggests, is bright, festive and colourful and is worn on two very special occasions:
1. Happy Birthday
2. Children's Day

Usage

Tomorrow is my happy birthday. I will be wearing my colour dress and distributing chocolates. Don't take more than one chocolate ok?

Adjective.

Definition

Innuendo or double entrendre implying slutty. Typically used to describe ladice or ladij. Especially used to describe ladice who wear 'western' clothes/ sport short hair.

The (nefarious) assumption around broad-minded ladice is that they will not have any problems to make frandship with you, and will certainly not look down upon eve teasing - as they are broad minded after all.

Usage

Yaar that new girl in our class who wears jeans-pants is so broad-minded. I think I will make frandship with her

Phrase.
0

Definition

A North-Indian euphemism for 'make love'.

Fraandship is not the same as dosti. Dosti, or friendship, means friendship. Frandship on the other hand is using dosti as a ruse to get laid. Notice how the word 'rand' is cleverly hidden in the word frandship, and this is why fraandship and friendship are not one and the same.

Usage

Yaar that girl wearing cooling glasses seems to be broad-minded. I really want to make frandship with her

Definition

Telugu for 'come in', without any sexual connotation, or co-relation to the Hindi meaning of the same word. Randi in Hindi means prostitute. This causes some intriguing miscommunication across the Vindhyas.

Usage

Newbie in Andhra Pradesh: Hallo ji
Gulti from A.P: Oh hello hello, Randi randi
Newbie in A.P: What??
Gulti from A.P: Welcome welcome! Rape-oo Vachi?
Newbie in A.P: (gulp!)

Noun.

Definition

First cousin-brother of Cycle Jackson, second cousin-brother of Michael Jaikishan and best pals with Anand Shivajinagar - Justin is THE DUDE every Bangalorean aspires to be, and what every porki paya wants to be.

He is hip, always in tune with the latest style, is the fashion mentor for Michael and helped Cycle by bringing sexy bike.

He is usually spotted in and around Ulsoor Lake, as his business is fishy, and oh-so-flashy.

Usage

Macha did you see Justin's jin jak jeans-pants? Full to sakkath macha! J to the U to the L.A.K.E!
