The thin line between jokingly teasing a nice Indian girl and infuriating her beyond repair.

Ever tried to tease a parent fearing, arranged marriage respecting suitable girl on why she spends so much time with one studmuffin , gets taken to and from office and to midnight buffets on his bike or asks only him to topup her mobile? In short any statements indicating potential lau between them?

If you plan to, please observe caution in the wake of following consequences :

You will be met by an infuriated woman who will ignore your taunts for 3.5 minutes, followed by a stern stop it okay! at the 5th. Failing to abide by this shut up your mouth command could result in loss of friendship or worse- tears!

Commonly prefixed before phrases ' like my brother only' and 'he is my rakhi brother'.

Usage

Rathy : Hey Roshni, how is Logonathan? Went to bessi beach with him aaa? mmm mmm
Roshni : STOP IT OKAY! He is like my brother only

Okay- so this one needs a bit of imagination!

If you are familiar with Capt. Vijaykanth (Here's what Wikipedia says) popular tamil actor and politician we'll get there quicker. Close your eyes and imagine him belt out dialogues like arrust them pointing at terrorists in Gaashmeer or Sandigar.

After a busy day at shooting, a ravenous meat craving Vijaykanth will instruct his driver to take him to Bobby Ganesan for dinner - a hip new restaurant in Chennai also known as 'BARBEQUE NATION'.

Note :
Portions for Vijaykanth novices : YouTube shows you this this gem.
Gaashmeer = Kashmir
Sandigar = Chandigarh

Usage

Vijaykath to driver Muthu: Ay Muthu, T Nagar po, Bobby Ganesan hotel!
Muthu ( confused) : Saarr??
Vijaykanth : Bobby Ganesan! Bobby Ganesan!

Phrase stenciled on compound walls mostly of gorement (aka government) offices cautioning against posters being stuck on them. Instead it has come to be an invitation to posters of superstar and others.Also a blank canvas for lau failure victims to vent out anger and frustration and lauers to showcase the union of names.Naughty Indian Uncles find useful contact details on some and also sometimes do number one on it. Youngsters with dau and intent to put kai lean against wall with this message and wait for the opportune moment to strike.
The font of this phrase is uniform throughout the 28 states and 7 Union territories in India.

Not Saint.
Acronym expanded as Sanitary Towel.
Boys, if the term is unfamiliar, there is a reason!The terminology is as strictly for female use as the article it represents. When chums visit a shy or male species respecting Indian girlie she is bound by virtue of social norms to ensure her ST is out of male sight. At school she becomes Agent Salt and tactfully conceals it from the boys by inserting between pages of books or wrapping in plastic packet.

Usage

Rakhi *whispering* : I got my chums maaan, you have STs on you?
Aparna *Now Agent Salt* : Yeah, don't worry I'll bring it to the loo, wait there okay?

Mohanlal

\moh- hen- lal\
40 2
Noun.
0

Definition

Name of a very popular malayalam actor a.k.a Lalettan(ettan = older brother in malayalam) thus making him the universal elder brother of Kerala.
It is z(s)imple to physically be a Mohanlal. Stay away from the gym, grow a moustache, stuff your face with all the food and drink you can... and then with some more... and more and MORE for 365 days and voila! However the man is immensely talented and is the face of malayalam cinema. What is relatively unknown is that he is also the face of the average hindi speaking malayalee. Mohanlal starred in a recent remake of Sholay where he instructed his side kicks to capture a character called Babban by gurgling "Jaawo,Bebben ko pagado!!", jest like any other mellu would. Otherwise said as 'Jao,Babban ko pakdo' in hindi.

To qualify as a Mohanlal a South Indian studmuffin or kochukalli must :
1.be absolutely crap at Hindi or atleast speak it to a bare minimum that too with local accent
2. be ready to belt it to closest horizon if faced with a wonly Hindi speaking Gorka Bagadur or Chaukidhar
3. devour subtitles of KABC, KXYZ, KQRS and other acronymed hindi movies
4.avoid taking ricks/autos in Bihar as you fear hindi communication
5.strategically dodge questions involving terms like 'baigon bartha'(a dish with brinjal) as you are unsure if it is a dish, fruit, vegetable or even village in UP
6.all of the above

Usage

Hey Mona just speak to him in hindi man, I'm such a Mohanlal!
