Derived from the largely popular 'yaar' used everywhere in North India. Aara has arisen due to the peculiar accent of the people of the southern districts of Himachal as well as their propensity to shorten words.

Usage

Mintu - (Running towards an old friend he hasn't seen in years) Aara Bhaizee kaisay aap?! Aap to ghum hi ho gaye aara, dikhte hi nahi Mall Road pe haa aah!

This used to be a noun (sung to the tune of Madonna's "This used to be my playground") but now it's a proper noun. This used to mean elder brother, now it is a political activist, a call to arms, an engraving in the constitution. Amazing.

How does he do it you ask? Well it is proven (by They That Prove Things) that caloric reduction is the surest answer to that age old question of longevity. Simply put: eat less, live longer. The Anna Hazere Diet Plan, as I recently heard someone call it (see how I side step blame so nicely?), but there is truth in it...

So, if he is the anna, then I am definitely the thambi. Why means, because about every other day simply I forget to eat for no reason whatsoever. Busy, distracted, lazy...

Then instead of taking corrective gastronomic measures, when I realize I'm starving I stand up for something righteous. Then and there. It is a distant hope that this mildly anachronistic hunger strike will do its part in making the world a better place.

Light-aa konjum activism...

Three wheeler - tuk tuk - Phat phatti

What would we do without the auto-rickshaw?

What other automobile would lend itself so well to self expression- disco lights, rockin' music?

Who would ask us for Rs.300 to go anywhere because Vishnuvardhan is ill or the Central govt are porkis or where you live is just not exciting enough?

Who would block the whole road because they are pushing their friend's auto by foot, uphill to the petrol bunk?

Where would we read such beauties as "romanse nimans" and above mother there is no other?

The South Indian equivalent of 'Yeah right!!'. If you say something that is hard to believe or sounds ridiculous, you'll hear the Tamil word Aama (meaning 'yes' ) stretched and used this way - Aaaama. It is usually said in a flat tone and followed by a sarcastic statement.

Usage

Divya: Ayyo we're going to reach late man. I don't think we'll get tickets either..

Aparna: Will you just chill!!! We'll definitely get them.

Divya: Aaaama. Our thatha will be waiting for us with tickets on a golden platter no!

The notorious sound that litters a certain class of incessant talkers whose only intention is to yap and yap about themselves but who, during their course of a misspent life, have somehow managed to notice that there needs to be a hapless audience that they need to spew their verbal diarrhea upon and that this unfortunate victim also needs to be acknowledged as alive and breathing for the sake of the other surrounding unfortunate peripheral audience and therefore this first poor bugga needs to make some noises occasionally through reacting to his "aayttha ?"
