Definition

The most distinguishing of Dravidian language words, distinguishable from the rest of the world languages and at the same time indicative of the commonality of origin or mutual influence among each other, of almost all the Dravidian languages.

Ooru means Place, town, City, village, native place.
It is akin to the Sanskrit term pura which becomes 'pore' in Singapore,
Set down, settle(Verb, Kan).

The term Oor(Tam, Tel, Mal) or Ooru( Kan, you know 'U's of Kannada?) also plays a significant role in the study of the history of South Indian cultural and linguistic influences across the subcontinent and beyond.

A Jessore, A Sangrur, A Jalore, and other Oors in North India, Northeastern India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, East Asia, sound enigmatic until you realize that there are Dravidian languages in existence even today in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Orissa, Bihar, Bengal, and in some more unlikely of the places we naturally tend to think possible.

I think it has something to do with the noisiness of our South Indian Languages( Aren't most of Indian Languages noisier?) to have had such a reach in those prehistoric times. This language reach is thought to be of vedic times.

Usage

Ooralli Iddiraa?(Kan) ( Are you in town?)

More entries on 'Oor' from Kongas, Gults, Malls, Kodavas, Tuluvars, and any others will be worthwhile.

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."

The most accepted root is OCS, an acronym for "On Company Service", widely used during the British Raj to indicate company provided free stuff like Cars, houses etc. It was probably widely used across India, but most likely got corrupted as "Osi" into "Madras-Baashai" Tamil first

Definition

Meaning 1
Om or Aum or Ohm is a term given to the mythical sound of creation.The syllable aum is first described as an all-encompassing mystical entity in the Upanishads and describes that which cannot be described or named but which is the source of all existence. This word has nothing to do with lord Voldemort.

Meaning 2
It also refers to the imaginary homeland many anglo indians refer to when they speak of going "home". This om is supposed to lie somewhere between India and England and has never been found. Many Dingos claim to have found it in New Zealand, America, Australia and even the UK but they aren't really being truthful.

Usage
