This phrase was quite common after Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon" became popular.
It is used to describe skinny, malnourished, underweight people who think they can fight like Bruce Lee, after going to a few martial arts classes.

The phrase "choose lee" means "sucked it" in hindi.

Usage

The first time I heard this phrase was from a rickshaw puller - there was a street fight going on and a Choose Lee type let out blood-curdling shriek and at the same time aimed a full-blooded round-house karate kick at his opponent. The other guy calmly stepped back and dodged the kick. Choose Lee, his body weight unable to counter- balance the centrifugal force generated by his kick, fell on his back and hit his head on the road and knocked himself out silly!
And, the rickshaw puller said, "Bruce Lee ko to aap logon ne filmon me dekha hoga... ab inse miliye, unke chhote bhai Choose Lee!"

chath

\chuh-th\

Noun. June 20, 2013, Word of the Day

Definition

The chath is the roof of a house, which in apartment complexes is typically a large rectangular structure where you can run around or seek cool breezes to escape the stagnant heat of a summer night (especially during load shedding). It may even have a bathroom, featuring an Indian toilet, typically for the domestic help who come by to do jhaadu pocha in the flats of the apartment complex.

On the chath, children play many games, including Vish Amrit and Ice Pice. Clever and athletic denners can keep a large group of screaming children enthralled with the prospect of capture.

Then there's kite flying. This latter one can be of the harmless variety, where engsters gaze at the soaring kite on the end of a string, their uncles and fathers looking on with approval, or the less benign kind, involving a deel and manja and other chaths, engaged in chath-to-chath kite warfare across the neighborhood.

From your chath redoubt you can gaze safely out upon the busy urban landscape, contemplating electric wires (which may snag and dangerously end the aforementioned kite flying), the traffic, wildlife (including monkeys, crows, small worms in the tulsi plant, the occasional parrot, and sometimes a maimed mouse), and then the people themselves, who will appear multitudinous yet miniature, like toys.

Usage

Group of Indolent Cousins: "Ey, let's go on the chath and play Ice Pice!"
