Actually the word means barrel.
But, most often peepayee is used to allude to a guzzler of alcoholic drinks, who doesn't shake even if he consumes barrel amounts of the drink.
Etymologically, the word seems to have leaked into Kannada and other South Indian languages from Persian, Arabic and Urdu, of which yours truly isn't sure. And, if you are not a peepayee yourself, you wouldn't care to know. But if you happen to be a peepayee, you would love not to care just as much.

Usage

Kencha: "avanammanaa kyaya, Peepaayee nanmaga HarshaYenne hodudbutmeley avangey pakdalliroLu ammanooo illa suLeynooo goththaagalla"
Kencha: ( Fuck his mother, peepayee my son of a bitch Harsha, after a drink can't distinguish between his mother and a prostitute in the bed)

Pretty girl : "Hain ji?" (Eeeeeeh?)

Champu fellow, wiggling eyebrows suggestively with a leer on his face : "Mera naam hai Puppy" (My name is Puppy)

(Suddenly, stern fother of pretty girl materialises from nowhere. Next day Champu fellow is seen walking around the village with a black eye)

Definition

A term used in South India when feeling deeply sympathetic towards someone innocent who has suffered in some way. Used mostly by mothers comforting their little ones, and by women whose maternal instinct misfires wildly when seeing strange children fall down and scrape their knees.

Must, I say MUST be accompanied by look of abject sorrow, and is best said with great emphasis on the first 'pah'. Forget to say this in front of a mother comforting her wailing offspring, and you shall incur her instant wrath. Only if you're female of course.

Usage

Open Scene. Children playing. One falls down and hurts himself.

*THUD*

Chunnu Munnu : Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnh. Ammmmmaaaaaaaaaaaaa .....

Amma : Ayyo... Come, come to amma. *Hugs and pats Chunnu Munnu's head lovingly*

Female Onlooker : Ayyo!!! Poor fellow, see how badly he fell. Pah pah!!! *Turns to Chunnu Munnu after rummaging in her purse* See, look what I have for you?

Chunnu Munnu gets nice toffee from kind female onlooker and cheers ups instantly.
