Connected closely with Traditional with Modern Outlook, but you'll never see this phrase in the matrimonial columns. This is the girl you don't want- because you can't take her home to meet the parents- will wear mini skirt - cooly blow cigarette smoke- has no idea how to wear a sari BUT- deep in her heart wants to make the best aaloo paranthas, wear maang mein sindoor and be housewife. Problem is that she can't admit all if this because she wants to be uber cool, but deep inside is paavam kutti.

Usage

do the needful and figure it out.

It has been a long day. Your mobile phone bill shows an amount due of Rs.5000/- so you call customer care. After a long wait, Sheela wants to help. You explain situation, tell her the bill is wrong, it cannot be Rs.5000/- and demonstrate that in the last 5 months the bill has never been more than Rs.400/- Hence, the bill is wrong. She puts you on hold and some 'n' minutes later reports that there has been a mistake. Your bill was sent to one Mr. Balan and his to you. Promises to rectify the situation and therefore... do the needful.

Usage

Dear Madam, Please find herewith the cheque.
Please do the needful at the earliest.
Yours humbly,
xyz
