Definition

This entirely Tamilian term, strangely enough, has its origins in the term "off-beat" used in the British Army to refer to retired officers or soldiers.

"OB adikardhu", in Tamil, refers to the following activities: to avoid doing work, to jugaad-fy, to waste time, to chillax.

Usage

"Macha, did you study Boyle's Law?"
"Chill da. we'll OB-adchufy."

"Ey, we have seven wickets in hand. We should thulp them."
"Chanceless. No. 6 and 7 are full OB-types, da."
