The phrase is actually 'Go ahead and confirm'. It doesn't mean you take a few steps forward and confirm whatever it is that you need to confirm. It merely implies an affirmative for carrying out some action. Used mostly in email communications among the IT crowd, the phrase has evolved ever so slightly to 'Go head and confirm', almost retaining the original meaning when spoken fast.

Usage

IT manager : Ravi, I am traveling to USA on a business trip. Please book tickets on business class.

a while later...

Ravi : Sir, please find attached the itinary. Shall I go head and confirm the dates?

Refers to the ubiquitous Tata Indica brand of cars that ply the cities at all times. Used to ferry the vast majority of the salaried employees of the city who work for IT companies as IT professionals to and from their place of work which is approximately 30 Km away from their residences. These cab drivers have a reputation of driving as they please and breaking all traffic rules as they go about earning their bread. Any form of admonishing by a other commuters on their errant driving is not tolerated and a rude reply is reserved for such people.

Usage

I.M Naidu : Hey how do you comute to work ra? I go by cab to Setyam.

V.R Reddy : o cab aa?? You must work in night shift. I go by bus only ra. Be careful ra. Last week one cab driver slept off while driving and the cab almost hit a few pedestrians sleeping on the pavement. Luckily the cab came to a halt when it hit a pile of sand dumped on the road for a house construction.

Definition

A phrase used in email invitations for special occasions such as a marriage. This is usually used when the person who is inviting doesnt have time or does not really want to take the trouble of coming over to invite you personally, but wants you to believe that his/her invitation is equivalent to one involving a personal visit to your residence. This type of invitation is reserved for people who do not belong to your inner circle of very close family members but have to be notified of the occasion all the same.

Usage

Father of the bride : I solicit your presence on the occasion of my daughter's marriage on April 1 2012 at Sri Kalyanam hall. Please treat this as a personal invitation and grace the occasion with your presence. Directions are attached.

A most insignificant piece of information that nobody really cares about, but is portrayed by news channels to be one that ought to make your hair stand on end and make you want to question your very existence in this world. The frequency of occurrence of a breaking news on news channels is approximately every 30 seconds. Breaking news usually is flashed to the innocent TV viewers in a bright bold display at the bottom of television screens that takes up nearly 50% of the viewing space. The remaining 50% is taken up by a pretty news reporter whose zombie like expressions do not do justice to her innate acting abilities. The pretty reporters sign off at the end of every breaking news by announcing their name and the news channel to which they are affiliated to in a loud and proud voice.

Usage

Doorknob Goswami : Breaking news…..Old man in village slips on banana peel and hurts his backside. Old man unable to get up and has been trapped in a seated posture for the last 2 hours. Rescue team on the way. Family of old man blames government's apathy towards old men in villages.

A means of fooling unsuspecting persons by mentioning to them some random, but untrue occurrence on the first of April. The trick here is to make the occurrence sound as if it is very much plausible, but a tad surprising at the same time so that people will fall for it. The person who narrates the incident usually has a good laugh at the expense of the person who got 'fooled' after the latter comes to know the truth.

Usage

Ramesh : Sachin Tendulkar has retired from test and ODI cricket man!
Suresh : Really!!?? Now there is no meaning in my existence....
Ramesh : April foooolllllllllll!!!!!!! hahahahahaha

Respected sir,
