Sheekh < Jumbo < Mumbo < Rambo < Sambo

Usage

Johnson's Theorem is from a distant corner of theoretical mathematics and has little or no application in the real world except when used as a gauge for one's appetite at Hotel Fanoos, Johnson Market, Bangalore.

One possible usage of the future:
"How many male models should we use in this section of the Speedo show?"
"Hang on, let me apply Johnson's Theorem. A Mumbo comes to mind... so that's three. Three male models. Make those "rumalis" nice and thin, okay?"

You might think India is a country of undercover agents and first-class goondas, the number of us who have two birthdays, one “official” and the other “real”. (And if you have a star birthday as well, you have three you gift-grubbing koodhal.)

It all begins when Munna is born inconveniently just one or two months late for LKG or UKG admissions cut-off in a given year. So the parents concoct an “official” birthday that’s one or two months earlier (carefully counting three-four times from their wedding date), so that their darling chut-put will not waste his time running around nunga-punga when he could be getting a serious education and be on his way to taking the IIT-JEE one year early. Imagine, he will always be-ahead-in-life!

And so all the paperwork from then reflects this fake birthday: school records, passport, driving licence, and eventually—oh so inevitably, given that Munna had this shiny headstart—his H1B visa application for America-based employment purposes.

Usage

She: So when's your birthday?
Munna: Errrrrr....
She: What, you don't know your own birthday?
Munna: I'm trying to remember which one's my real birthday.
She: Check please!

Indians don't give credence to the transitive nature of this verb. It is against our beliefs. Enjoyment is something in its own right, who wants to transfer it to something else?

Usage

"Good movie. You will enjoy!"

"On holiday last week ah? You enjoyed?"

You are riding Yezdi and taking blind turn at foot of KGA golf course. A BTS bus comes thundering down the wrong side of the road, just so that it can avoid waiting in traffic when the light changes.

You swerve and narrowly avoid being flattened by said bus. You go up to the driver and express your outrage at being nearly killed by his foolish behaviour. Driver leans out of the window and says, "Nothing happened no? Why are you getting upset?"

Nothing happened no. The standard response to anybody on Bangalore roads who is outraged at having been almost killed or maimed for life by a bus, tempo, Sumo or auto.

The story above ends happily. The Yezdi rider delivered one left-hand slap so hard, the bus driver's face actually rippled and the Yezdi rider's hand stung for ten minutes after. Something happened. YES!

Usage

"Oh my GOD! You just fired your shotgun at my baby!!"
"Nothing happened no? See? I missed. Why are you getting upset?"
