A curious word often encountered in Chennai, where Roundtana actually refers to traffic island or circle or what is commonly called Surkal in Bangalore. I have never encountered this word used anywhere else in India..I am told it has its origins in Tamil but have been able to figure it out..

Usage

Northie in Chennai: "Bhaiyya Timex showroom kahaan hai"
Helpful Chennai local: "Yenna??."
Northie in Chennai: "TIMEX SHOWROOM KAHAAN!!"
Helpful Chennai local: "Oho naarth Indian ah..wokay wokay...Timex showroom minns, go shtraait,then front is coming Anna Nagar roundtana take first left and then one shtraait route.."
Northie in Chennai: *scratching his head*

Nayanty meaning 90 ml is a unit of measurement used by customers in TASMAC shops all over Tamil Nadu to indicate what quantity of alchohol they require in their drink of choice. Nayanty is considered a large or Patiala peg, and the measurements continue on a descending scale with increments of 30ml. Therefore a medium peg is called a Sissty (60ml) and small peg is call a Thurty (30ml). If you regularly order only Thurty's then you will be considered a 9

Usage

Hungover college student 1: "Mamma full tight yesterday, TASMAC leh I put off 3 nayanty's Old Monk da.."

Friend: "Poda chumma don't olu ok, might be you had one Thurty Max to max, after that full vanti only you will do, I know you"

A phrase used to indicate the maximum level of anything! While max is a commonly used word, max to max adds more emphasise and indicates either the level of confidence of the speaker or the level of desperation of the speaker to make the listener believe him.

Usage

At home:
Ramu: "Appa I got 85% in Maks exam"
Father: "Dai copied ah?"
Ramu:"No Appa, mother promise"
Father: "Dai without copying you will not get more than 40% max to max, I know it"

A corruption of the word Pseudonym, became popular in call centres in early 2000's where call centre agents used to anglicise their names (and take on Pseudonames), this was done with the hope that the Faarin customer they were talking to would think the agent was from Amreeka or UK as the case may be.
Unfaartunately this did not work because why magaa WALTO ....

Usage

Call centre manager Jess talking to the new agent "Dude, you need to get a Pseudoname, even I can't pronounce your name"

New call centre agent Padhmanabhalakshmanan "Dont worry Jaswinder sir, just call me Paddy"

"No body catch" refers to an often invoked rule in gully cricket, which states that the batsmen cannot be declared out if he is caught by a fielder after the ball has hit any part of his anatomy. It must be pointed out here that body catch is, however, a legally accepted form of dismissal in most classroom cricket and corridor cricket games. Body catch rule is very effective since the LBW rule usually does not apply in such games (due to absence of an umpire) and therefore it is an attempt to ensure that the useless batsment does not block every ball with his legs.

Usage

Sreesanth: "Quick lets start the game before that useless fellow Sachin comes otherwise he won't give us batting only.."

Bhajji: "Dai useless, the umpire has not yet come da, how can we start..one tight slap you will get"

Mahendra: "No no he is right lets start off da, we will keep body catches and no LBW rule.."

Dear All,

With respect to this is concerned I suggest we hold an inquiry to apprehend the miscreants at the earliest..

Definition

KV means to Keep Vigil, used in boarding schools across India, where when students are "upto some mischief" one of them is assigned to KV, to alert the miscreants when a teacher/senior is in sight. While the expansion of KV has been lost over time, the abbreviated form is still widely used all over India and has resulted in the accepted phrase now being: "Keep KV"

Usage

Manish: Dude I am meeting Sonal in the audi after games class da, can you Keep KV?

Varun: Ok dude...she is hot man..

Manish: Dude don't try to put kai ok...she is like your sister
