Galiyon ka Badshah. Person who knows his way around the city like the back of his band. He knows all the short-cuts by heart and many of the shortest-cuts in the city are attributed to him. He can take you to places in minimum time, avoiding all traffic signals, jams, greedy cops and chakkas. If you air-drop him blind-folded in any part of the city he will smell his way home and brake before every single speed breaker.

Usage

Sardarji : "Palak paneer? Gobhi manchurian? What is all this ghaas phoos you're suggesting to me? I want some chicken and fish dishes!"

Waiter : "B..b..but sarr, we are 100% Pure Veg A/C restaurant only!"

*Already low on blood sugar, on hearing the words 'Pure Veg', Sardarji faints*

This special word actually portrays the action of giving someone a dressing down or scolding someone. There is no need to mention the actual noun implied at all. Needless to say, it is a direct translation of the word in multiple Indian languages. It takes the forms 'give' and 'gave'.

Usage

Mahima: "What??? How dare that Gowri try to steal your earrings! Thank god you saw it no? Just give her nicely tomorrow!!"

Preeti: "Correct only! Already I gave her properly for using my chappals once and now this! It's so hard to trust anyone these days I tell you."
