Definition

A snack you will find being hawked all over the place at every corner of the state of Poshchim-Bongo. It is a small, crispy ball of flour with tangy, spiced water in it along with mashed potatoes, tamarind, chopped green chilies, a bunch of other delicious kitchen ingredients and (if you ask the vendor nicely) a dash of sweet chutney. After you have eaten one full plate, it is your duty to ask for an extra one.

This item is NOT to be confused with the golguppa of Punjab-Haryana, the phulki of Uttar Pradesh or the paani-puri of Maharashtra. This is not simply a snack. It is a way of life for a Bengali. It is poetry. It is romance. It is sensuality. It is pure, raw, unbridled lust.

Bengali women gush like teenagers while writing eloquent pieces about how phuchka is a work of art in their blogs (and on Samosapedia), the Bengali man's favorite fantasy is sharing a tangy, naughty plate with his woman while getting drenched in the rain. The Bengali kid will steal a tenner from Bapi's wallet to indulge in this sin. Even the high-society Park Street type Bengali aunty can't resist the temptation once in a while.

Phuchka is sacred. Always remember that.

Usage

Phuchka phuchka korchhe mon.

Originally a term used in the Bangladeshi version of Bengali language, but widely used in day to day bengali.

Literal meaning - The job is done

Actual meaning - Refers to the avalanche of undesirable situations which follows on after something terribly wrong has happened.

Sort of like "OMG! I am dead!" in English.

Usage

A boy has two girlfriends. By mistake both come to meet him at the same time. The boy says "kaam sarse" and flees for his life.. :P

Bengalis have always taken great pride in their rich culture of ideas, poetry, language, lyricism and intellectual output. Hence it is not surprising that they have unique word for everything un-Bengali. The word apasanskriti is a Bengali word which means debased culture or low/crass/hedonistic/ mass culture.

Usage

Bengali Transport minister in response to IPL cheerleaders:

"This is nothing but apasanskriti. The whole thing has left me shocked.How can girls in such dresses be allowed to perform at cricket matches?”

From the greatbong:

Thanda lege jaabe. Translation: You will catch a cold. Bengalis love Nature. After all, about 36.4% of their rhymeless poems, scribbled on the back of cigarette cartons and paper napkins, are about its assorted glories. (The rest are about Prem or love). But Nature, the heartless seductress, remains cold to them. Literally. Wise men have not been able to find out what exactly it is about the Bengali genetic structure that makes them as susceptible to the common cold as Raina is to the short ball. Whatever be the reason, Bengalis are mortally afraid of catching the chill. And for good reason. Which is why when the mercury dips oh-so-slightly, you will find them wandering about in gear that would look excessive at the North Pole—brown monkey caps, grey sweaters (typically called “pullovers”) yards of mufflers and woolen socks. The Bengali might keep the windows of his mind open (like the legendary Sidhu-jyatha of Feluda lore) but, come spring, will definitely keep the windows of his room closed. Because the first breeze of spring, as his grandmother used to tell them, is deadly (praanghati).

Usage

Bengali 1: Hey man get your monkey cap, Thanda lege jaabe!
Bengali 2: [Bokachoda}! don't treat me like a small child, everything will be fine

From the greatbong:

Bokachoda: Moronic Fornicator.If there is one Bengali word a non-Bengali knows, it is this. The iconic swear-word is the Bong F-word. Depending on the context and the way in which you say it, it can convey anger, wonderment, sadness, disappointment, arousal, excitement or joy. As an added advantage, you can take out the “Boka” and attach different pre-fixes (“pagla” mad, “chagol” goat, “chomchom” a sweet) behind the “Choda” and each combination becomes a lethal swear-word, a perfect example of code reuse. So great has been the influence of this word that one of the first websites in India to be banned (the owner was also arrested) was bokachoda.com (around 1999) for its anti-CPM and sometimes anti-Bengali vitriol

Usage

Bloody Bokachoda!

Pejorative phrase meaning "damaged goods". Also referred to as Painted and Dented by those unfamiliar with gujjris.

Apparently a way of describing any woman who is not a sati savitri and who therefore must be a ultra-fast POMO chick of some sort. Though why one would compare ladice of any type to used goods is beyond comprehension.

The term is perhaps derived from the "make-up" that needs to be applied before selling a "banged-up" gaddi on the second-hand market. Imagine buying a "lightly used" Yezdi for sale in a chor bazaar. The chalu seller hides the dent with the paint and with a straight face say it's first class and jugaad-free. Such must be the attitude of any woman standing up against the excessive bandobast in Delhi today. Whattey naansense, I say!

Popularized by our very own Pranab da's very own Bangla son: Abhijit Mukherjee, one can also say it refers to the anachronistic and chauvinistic Uncleji ideologies that passes off as cultural leadership in India today.

With specimens like this as prominent netas and law makers, it may just be time for aam aadmi put on a monkey cap and pray to Hey Bhagwan for this world to end.

For more action-oriented junta types, kindly do the needful and join up with like-minded types like Society of Painted Dented Ladies of India, one of whom has responded to the cant and rubbish.

Usage

You can check out the woriginal at approx. 0:56 in this video.

Or read the translation below...

Translation:
"What's basically happening in Delhi is a lot like Egypt or elsewhere, where there's something called the Pink Revolution, which has very little connection with ground realities. In India, staging candle-lit marches, going to disco - we did all this during our student life too, we were students too - I know every well what kind of character students should have. Those who claim to be students - I can see many beautiful ladice among them - highly dented and painted - they're giving interviews on TV, they've brought their children to show them the scenes. I have grave doubts whether they're students, because shundoris of that age are generally not good students."

nb: The Pink Revolution was not in Egypt but in Kyrgyzstan, no?
