T'was in the 80's and 90's that the Tri-Star King rolled onto the streets of India and virtually melted the ever hungry hearts of the then modern Indian troglodytes. Its authentic , charming , aristocratic look made even the simplest of costamongers dream away . It was the simpletons of Kerala and Tamil Nadu who coined the term for every imported car then onwards , even if it was the Kings car. But hey , who cared then ? It was just the car that made you the Czar. As long at it had a shade of the Merc , you were the boss and as they said :"Dei, here comes the boss and he's got the new Benz Vandi !"

Usage

Anurag : " Boys and Girls, todays class is going to be on how to market yourself as the Best Enggs this college may ever produce ..."
Random Thug (interrupting) : "Sir will this give us the Money and right to buy our own Benz vandi?"
Anurag :" Shut up and first learn to buy yourself new underwear when you go to work, We'll think about the car later !"

The explosive expletive , also identified as the Indian "Bitch Please!" , this term was coined by none other than our beloved auntie lover Jackie Shroff during an advert shoot for Pulse polio vaccine awareness 14 YEARS AGO.
It is derived from Marathi,where "Mavshi" generally means aunt and "Gaand" , as we know, is the rear end . It can be used with reference to a hot aunty's backside or a common housemaids' , generally dependent on the taste of the exclaiming individual, or just as word for the moment in a negative situation. Please exercise caution as random Vegetable buying aunties will generally apropos to the usage being very rude and use their purses' and sabzi carrying bags to turn you to a better shade of orange.

Usage

When Khloe Kardashians' son grows older , he is going to have a severe affection for MavshiChi Gaand . (Who of course is Kim Kardashian).

Bathe

\Bath-they\

Verb.

Definition

Derived from an ancient South Indian dialect, synonymous with Tulu, the word means " I'm coming" . Generally used when angry moms call u up on the Cell-phone after they are convinced you have crossed your minuscule curfew hours , 7 PM- 8 PM in the evening. The emphasis here is to ensure you sound imploring before the word is used , followed by repetitive angry exclamations of the word which result in positive feedback i.e. extension of curfew hours. Pls try this at home.

Usage

Me and my Tulu friend in a bar.
Friends' phone rings.
"hellooo, Yenge Amma? , mama friend party ille , please mama....blah blah blah ..... (pleading tone)...Ok fine (piqued)! Bathe Bathe!..."
Me:what happened? Going home?
Friend : Nahhh. Just told me to be home before she files missing persons' complaint.
Me: hahaha.
Friend : Cheers Matey :D!

Definition

The most important constituent of the breakfast for most of us South Indians (predominantly Mallus) , this is a subtly fiery chutney, made from Onions fried with a gentle hint of tomato puree with red Chilly in some cases. Advisable to have a wanter tanker nearby in-case your taste buds "Feel The Love".Most North Indians who have survived this Culinary onslaught, have Indeed recommended it whole heartedly(or Tonguedly).

Usage

Me: Ammmmaaaaa, whats for breakfast?
Mom: Stop Shouting da. I've made Dosha and your favourite Ulli Chamandi.
Me: Aiy aiyooo, I have that important interview today. I can't go around smelling like some
