Most common question asked by Delhites to our pan south indian friends. Whether they be from andhra, tamil nadu, karnataka, kerala or telangana, nevermind Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Sudan or Tanzania.

Usage

Raj (naam toh suna hoga): where are you from?

Vaidyanatha Iyer: Palakkad.

Raj: onn, rand, moon, naal, machcha, homie... You guys are so cool. Listen, i've always wanted to know: do you guys worship Ravana?

Vaidyanatha Iyer: Rascal! (Apologies, rascal doesn't cut it. Damn you linguistic barriers)

Phrase. Commonly used to address a gathering. Usually accompanied by a command or a request. Double whammy: used to emphasise that the speaker is addressing the same "all" and not the other "alls" who may be hanging around, lingering around or deviously planning to be a part of the same "all".

Usage

Shivapriya: all of y'all come here.

The ones who are not a part of the all but sneak in anyway: okay!

Shivapriya: not all of y'all.. All of y'all (points towards the same all)

The ones who are a part of the all: Bleah!!! ( look mockingly at the ones who are not a part of the same all, who dejectedly move away and hang out around other groups of people hoping to find new alls)

BT. Lit. "Bad Trip"

BT not because the trip (re: journey) was bad, but because so many emotions cannot be captured in fewer words.

Used to describe ugly hangovers, bad days, bad nights, seldom used for actual bad journeys, unexpected turn of events etc.

Usage

Sarfarosh: dude yaar chal malls chalte hain. Drinkss peete hain.
(Dude yaar, let's go to the mall, take some drinkss.

Ramanujam: kaunsi drinkss? Hot drinks ya cool drinks?

(What drinkss? Hot drinks or cool drinks?)

Sarfarosh: Hot hot drinks *winks*

Ramanujam: nahin yaar. Kal hi pee thi. BT na ho jaaye yaar!

(No yaar. Yesterday drank, experienced a BT).
