Definition

After your porki family has had a nice full dinner at your local family restaurant, you snap your fingers and scream at the waiter "AYE! betichod! finger bowl!!!". The waiter will bring you a soup bowl filled with lukewarm water with a slice of lime in it. This is for you to rinse your hands, not to bloody drink it.

Usage

Russian "girlfriend" - Wow! free lemonade!! I love India jaanu!
You - Yes yes, free lemonade.
Waiter - Madam, stop drinking it, its to wash hand only.
Russian "girlfriend" - No ways I'm wasting perfectly good lemonade! (glug glug glug)
You - Yay!!! (look around with pride)

Definition

a bowl full of mildly warm to extremely hot water, served (variably, with a quarter lemon slice) after a meal in most medium to high-priced Indian restaurants. Used for cleaning soiled hands. Not to be confused with a complimentary soup or dessert. Rarely used term, it usually appears magically at the table just before you ask for the check.

Usage

Waiter: May I take your plate?
Nitin: Yes.
Nitin reaches for the table napkin, but is quickly accosted by the smirking waiter and a fingerbowl.

Definition

To tease, mess with, or rag someone is to "finger" them. Oddly enough, this word has no sexual connotations.

Usage

Hey man I fingered Maya so much, she started crying. I put buttermilk into her TVS 50 and removed all the petrol.
