Just when you think Indians couldn't get enough by calling someone naked "nanga", they have to add "punga" to create that infant-like approach to diminish the reputation of young boys and girls roaming around their house naked.

This name-calling is also recalled back when parents click photographs of their nanga punga children and show it to them a few years later.

Usage

Mom: Shee, beta, why are you roaming around nanga punga?
Dad: Hahaha, shame shame poppy shame all the girls know your name! I will click one photo.

*after 15 years*

Son: Dad, here's my girlfriend. I lau her.
Dad: Come here come here, look at his nanga punga photos!

Gaadaon

\gaa-daon\
9 1
Noun.

Definition

There is nothing more befitting in calling a fellow Mangalorean/Goan a "gaadaon." Since cussing is rude, insolent parents use this term to insult their children and make fun of them. After all, calling your child an "ass" is the only way to make your child feel like he's a miserable loser whose existence in this world is to just be a dumbass.

It has also been proven scientifically that calling a fellow person a "gaadaon" restores the anger imbalance in the body and increases adrenaline levels, which may lead to a landslide of other bad words in different Indian languages.

Usage

Son: Abba! Abba! Maka report card mela!
Dad: Poot, tu kitle mila?
Son: C+
Dad: Gaadaon! Tuka bari jor meltaon!

"You made chicken instead of dukra mass? Gaadaon!

Randa chai

Definition

Because two is better than one. More popularised by immigrants who feel the need to propagandise their language onto other countries, they also are acclaimed psychologists who know that people just can't satisfy their stomach with one masala chai. Hence, their ceaseless attitude of saying this in every restaurant and cafeteria.

Usage

Dood: Give me a masala chai!
Waiter: Randa chai!
Dood: No I said ONE masala chai!
Waiter: Randa chai PARCEL!

Dukra mass

\Dhoo-kra mass\

Noun.

Definition

The mother of all that is holy food for any Karnatak-ian. It is a must for every Southerner to have tried dukra mass or your life is incomplete. Fun facts include:

1) If a Goan/Mangi had to choose between Sridevi or dukra mass, they'd pick dukra mass (with a bucketload of sannas)
2) It is also the only food item that disappears the fastest than any of the food shtuff available in a wedding/roce.
3) Duh-kra mass has health benefits: it gives you a 110% fat content, has lots of cholestrol and if you have it with booze, expect to live the susegaad-life.
4) Every 9 out of 10 uncles will admit they love having "adult talk" with dukra mass by sitting together with/without lungis. The other uncle happens to be hogging up all the dukra mass in the kitchen.
5) Dukra mass is the epitome of how well your Mangi/Goan woman makes food in general. If a woman doesn't know how to make it, she's an alien for sure.
6) The amount of bafat powder added into dukramasssolution is directly proportional to people content with it. However, expect noobs to say: "Baari teek lagla, gon!"

Usage

Aunty 1: What special did you make for Christmas?
Aunty 2: Tu pishe lagla, gon? The only special we make is dukra mass.

Your conventional Mangi uncle: Arey Sylvie, (real name is Cecilia but origins of how it became Sylvie are unknown) maka bari jaonk asa! Tu dukra mass randlei, gon?
Your conventional Mangi aunty: Maka bari taank asa! Gaadwa, tuka dukra mass randlein gutu na?! I vaant to see my serial now.
