The most viral dance of the internets first got Introduced into the Indian mind space when Sri Chris Gayle did it to celebrate catches and wickets in the IPL much to the confusion of the aam admi and the Indian commentators such as the newly haired Sri Harsha Bhogle, all fo whome initially struggled to pronounce or explain what was happening.
Soon enough people got wiser and now everybody was expected to do the Gangnam dance everytime, especially the West Indian cricketers.
Sri Harbhajan Singh (who by the way slapped Sri Srisanth much before he took money for fixing matches) took it and made it his own, wildly gesticulating and violently attempting to dance the gangnam style while his body refused to cooperate and insisted on doing bhangra.
The end result, the Bhangnam Style.

Usage

Harsha Bhogle - There he goes again! that Chris Gayle, celebrating the wicket with his trademark gangnam style dance. This Caribbean flavour really lightens up this IPL, isn't it?

Daren Ganga - Well, Harsha! I have to say, Bhajis version the bhangnam style has made doing the gangnam style shameful, self-degrading and embarrassing.

An age old traditional dance of the Indian subcontinent, widespread from the war fields of Afghanistan to the darkness of Bihar.

And it is ok, Sirji, after all it happens in the darkness, in villages and far away from you.

Usage

Bhaiya 1 - Eh sala!! Shankarva ke biha me ja raha hai?
Bahiya 2 - Pucca be! mast launda naach hoga uhna!

When slavery was abolished by the Britishers in their plantations, they needed cheap desperate labour. They zeroed in on the desperately poor Bihari former opium farmers generally now out of work because of the opium wars in China, who lived along the ganges and other people from other parts of India.

Basically the FOBs of those times were the Girmitiyas, the word itself creole for Agreements that the FOBs signed on as bonded labors, and as old habits die hard the typical -ya to emphasize their origins.

Usage

Ramnaren - Dude, did you hear stories of the Girmitiyas?

Nalinie - Yup, and out of respect im going to celebrate Indian Arrival Day with more of the rum, dhal puri and goat curry!!

Definition

A western settled or foreign returned Indian, who readily and enthusiastically gets his/hers chuddies in a bunch every time a western celebrity, publication, movie, song, government or virtually anything does or says something even mildly patronizing or offensive to the great Indian nation while perpetually masturbating to western cultural output.

He/She will tweet, blog, write articles, give public sermons as soon as they find out some obscure thing has offended the mahaan India.

The Indian government in its infinite wisdom always supports the ungli-readies because after all it is the supreme beholder of our collective maryada.

Usage

Ungli-ready - Dafuq! That guy who was banging Demi Moore did an Indian accent? WHERES MY LAPTOP!!!

Ungli-ready - Dafuq! Obama says Indians are taking over American jobs? WHERES MY LAPTOP!!!

Ungli-ready - Dafuq! They put one of our Gods on a bikini? WHERES MY LAPTOP!!!

Ungli-ready - Dafuq! That guy called India dirty and smelly where cows and other sundry animals mingle with beggars on even the poshest streets? WHERES MY LAPTOP!!!

Ungli-ready - Dafuq! Norway put an Indian kid in child care because the bachha slept on the same bed with the parents? That is so not cool, in India kids do sleep on the same bed with their parents, so what if that's not the way in Norway, it's not like we ask them to not do chumma chaati in public when they are in India like they would be ok doing back home. WHERES MY LAPTOP!!!

Ungli-ready - Dafuq! Some assholes molested a drunk school girl who was apparently fighting with two other drunk girls and creating a ruckus on the streets and the mob was manipulated by a repoter into continuing the molestation till the camera comes? WHERES MY LAPTOP!!!
