Definition

Sarcastic exclamation so as to express disbelief at/ incredulousness re/ violent disagreement with what has been said. For greater effect, (a) draw out 'a' at the end of the word such that the word sounds like "aisssaaaaa"; (b) say it with a degree of innocent skepticism (like in "wow! didnt know unicorns existed" or such like); and (c) say offo after or before it. If executed properly, can be a motherlode of sarcasm and can cause the recipient much embarassment. Also, great repellent/ response for pailans, dharkaris/ kaankhans or their chicchas - albeit, use at own risk with these types.

Usage

Saleem: Zara Iphone Paanch ka daam to bolo mian?
Shopkeeper: Iphone? Aisssaaa! Offo. Pehle parsun karra so taack-time recharge ke bees rupye to do.

(Saleem: Hey shopkeeper. Tell me now only what is the price of the Iphone 5?
Shopkeeper: Iphone 5 price you want? First, give money for 20 rupees talktime recharge I did for you for free the other day.)

(Saleem: You are not giving me the money. I will tell my father.
Ismail: Let him come. Is he a prominent revenue collector?])

Definition

POLICEMEN in Hyderabadi.
Literal meaning is BED BUG.

Used as Katmal (singular) or Katmala (plural)

This was an affectionate term to describe police constables, traffic police, beat constables who used to hang out near and hassle people at various crossroads and traffic lights while humbly collecting funds for lunch (small amounts) or for daughters dowry (larger amounts collected from commercial accounts such as overloaded lorries, shopkeepers and tourist buses etc).

Older Katmals looked unusually well fed and sprouted big pot bellies within a few months on duty. The extra prosperous Khatmals also procured fake Ray Ban sunglasses so their victims rarely saw the twinkle in their eyes while they collected !

Usage

Two katmala hai chourasthe pe!
(Two bed bugs are standing at the crossroads)
