Definition

A briefcase made out of plywood, or worse, cardboard, with faux leather exterior. Featured prominently in Bollywood movies and are typically carried by nervous fathers of kidnapped heroines on their way to pay ransom. Can contain money ranging from a few lakhs to crores, though recent movies feature attaches containing top secret CDs. In real life they are carried for big babus and gourment afsars by chamchas or drivers as any self respecting afsar will never carry his ataichi himself. Pronounced Uhtaichee or Ataichi.

Usage

Bollywood baddie, "Vijay, bewakoofi mat karo, ataichi neeche phenk do aur haath upar karo. Mona Darling tum jaake ataichi ko apne kabze me karo. Is mein dus karod ke heere hain.

Alisha is 'Noble kind; of the noble sort'

Alisha Chinoy is the queen of the now defunct Indipop.Best known as Asia's answer to Madonna in the 90s,this songstress ushered in new trends in Indipop- reggae beats,fashionable headgear and seduction sequences.
'Made in India','Lover Girl' and 'Dil de de' were Alisha's memorable hits.
Alisha is quite (un) popular for her "scandal child" image and hoity toity attitude.She has lent her voice to iconic Bollywood songs such as 'Sexy Sexy' and 'Kajra re'. Given the fact Indi-pop is dormant,she has had ample time to be judge at Indian Idol.

Usage

20 something girl : I loved Alisha's songs when I was a teenager.So naughty they were.And her videos, was uncomfortable watching them in front of parents. I loved the men in her video..such hunks!

Slang for "yeah, right." A relatively new phrase- entered public consciousness only in the late 90s. Very, very popular with kids and college goers. Very different in function from abba, abbaa, and abbo (Telugu is a versatile language :))

Usage

Lalli (to Sasi): If i do well, Pappi will take me to Prasad's to celebrate. And if i dont, she will take me to Prasad's to cheer me up.
Pappi: (rolling her eyes) abba, cha!

P.S. Any female character under the age of 10 in Tollywood movies made during or before the '80s was invariably called 'Lalli', or 'Pappi'. 'Sasi' was the DD-8 (the state Telugu channel) equivalent for a young woman.

Definition

Shortened form of the phrase "Arse Burning Chillies". Afflicts those who love to eat copious amounts of chillies in all forms, sometimes for no other reason than to get cheap thrills in life. The next morning said persons are known to have a jolly good time on the throne.

To use the john after someone who has just suffered from a bout of this is not a good idea unless one has a protective gas mask handy.

Usage

"Macha. what sexy chilli chicken I had yesterday! But today in the morning, full ABC only happened. Ouch"

Aaava = Mustard
Kaaya = Unripe Fruit, usually Mango.
The one thing that binds Andhra and Telangana, is this hot, spicy pickle made with sesame oil, chilli powder and mustard powder. If you have high BP avoid, much too much salt aalso. Red in colour it is, many an immigration and customs official at the JFK airport has been confounded by the sight of a red, oily, chunky substance floating in the baggages of returning from home Hyderabadis, with happy smiles at the thought of a secret stash of pickles. No, no, not missing Hyderabad andi, not at aaal! Made in summers and kept in pickle jars, this side-dish with rice and melted ghee, substitutes for real food at any time for Telugus! It is also a regular topic of discussion and comparison - whose was the best this year? cheppandi! It can lead to family wars, just like the Gongura

Usage

Amma to Kanakaambaram : osai, take this kotha avakaya to pinni's, I had her's yesterday, ayiyo! it was so salty, tchaa. Plus her mangoes are not cut well....so many times I tell her...come to me my sister, my mango man is better but no, she will not come to Monda Market, she wants only Raithu Bazaar...okay vot to do, can't force no? She is also using Ratnadeep ready made powders no, how will the taste come? Taste has to come from juices no? Her Mangoes are not at all sour....go go take it..."
Kanakaambaram murmurs to herself (if you stop that tirade I will)

The versatility of this word is amazing. It is usually used in a demeaning, put-downing, condescending, jealous situation or context to just curse the other person (usually said to oneself in disdain or screamed loudly in frustration). Can also be used to call someone in the same circumstances.

Usage

after Venkateshuluramaswamyvenkappa forgot to mute his phone while on the conference call and is chatting with his girlfriend on his mobile, I say to myself, "arse".

after your friend forgot to come to Fame and buy the tickets in the morning and now you arrive and he shows up after you, "ARSE!!!!!, I told you to come in the morning, see now, housefull!!" What are we going to do da?

Senior to junior in college, "Hey, you arse, come here"
