Phrase.

Definition

Person who talks in a very boring manner, mainly focusing on the most uninteresting topics of conversation. Some people do this intentionally where as some are naturals. Oh the horror.

Sometimes, it can also be used to refer to situations where the receiver of the mokkai feels like repeatedly hitting his/her head on a rock.

Usage

Mettur: Boss, some Parvathy Nambiar is calling you on your mobile!
Baskar: Dai, its not Parvathy Nambiar, its Private Number!
