Definition

Used to refer to a person who acts like a fool, or acts without realizing consequences. This is similar to the Hindi equivalent "gadha", i.e. a donkey.

Usage

What a gadhedo! He thought he could jump off his apartment building like Akshay Kumar and land in single piece.

The literal/traditional meaning of the word is "dangerous"; however, it has been adopted colloquially to mean something "extraordinary" or "outstanding". It is mostly used as a one word response when asked for an opinion about something that is extraordinary.

This usage is roughly equivalent of the English term "killer". While "killer" in English may refer to someone who has killed someone, it can also be used as an adjective, for example "killer song" or "killer looks".

Usage

"Did you enjoy the dinner on beach?"
"Khatarnaak!"
