The most nagging, anxious, worrisome person on the face of earth. The baichan aatma is waiting for you around that curve on the road, on the bus-stop, class room, library. He/she is always anxious and is always ready to pounce on anyone who has an earful for her sob stories.

Usage

Yaar, look Simmi is coming.
Lets run, she is a total baichan aatma, dimaag ka dahi bana degi (she will eat our brain)

In Punjab during Baisakhi when the crops were ready pieces of wood separated the streams of water to the farms, and they use to say "Chakde Phatte" (pick up the planks of wood) which would release the streams of water in to the farms for the crops.
Chak de phatte now literally means to keep going, keep it up

Usage

O ji chak de phatte India (often used during cricket and more recently, during the Anna Hazare campaign)

Bheem from Mahabhartha is a raging bull and this was the oft-used phrase by Yudhishtra to placate his brother in the TV version of the Mahabhartha. He would carry a gada (mace) and hence gadadhari :) Eyes glued to the TV, this soap opera was perhaps the most watched opera in the history of India. Such an impression has it left on us 70-80 born desis that this phrase has its own place when talking to an angry friend.

Usage

Yaar saale ki tang tod doonga!
Shant gadadhari bheem shant, woh bhi mauka milega.

Chammak refers to the sound of jingling when someone walks. Challo comes from challa which means ring. Literal meaning is someone who makes a jingling sound with her jewels. However, colloquially the word refers to a hot sexy girl who is on the flashy side. See Sandra from Bandra or Traditional with modern outlook for variations on this theme.

Because of the popularity of the song by the same name, which rapper Akon co-produced, the phrase can now be used as slang for any arrestingly beautiful girl.

Usage

Aila she is a total chamak challo, I want to marry her....
Shakal dekhi hai apni, pajama chap saala!
