Tasteless, hard-as-rock, dried mini bread pieces served as a snack in Southie homes. Rusk becomes edible only when dipped in Garam Chai, which is the preferred dipping beverage for eating rusk. Certain hard varieties are a reasonable substitute for sandpaper. Rusk can be hurled as an effective weapon when fighting with your brother.
Usually served as a snack to unannounced guests.

Usage

Host to unexpected guest: Please take some rusk. It is very tasty, no.
Guest: Err sorry, my teeth are not strong enough to break them. Do you have any hot tea?

Raj

7 2
Noun.
0

Definition

Kingdom, Empire.

While the word itself might mean any particular ruling entity in India, "Raj" by itself has come to be synonymous with the period of occupation by the British over the South Asian subcontinent. While the occupation extended decisively from 1857 to 1947, various parts of the region were under British rule even earlier in the 19th century.

Usage

"The film reeks of a sense of nostalgia for the Raj. The director paints a rather patronizing picture of India and its citizens."

"In most of these coffee and tea plantations, you will see several remnants of the Raj - not just in the architecture - but in the ways and habits of the people who live here. It will be a long while before we are able to shed these colonial trappings."

Definition

You would say it just like rasam with no 'm' sound, and not draw the 'a's out like raasum.

The Sanskrit-rooted word literally means juice, nectar, shade of vital ingredient of a thing or a thought or an act. See also the entry for Rasna that no doubt plays on this meaning.

Samosapediacs will bash me up for the little literal trip. So here is the parody -- the more vulgar nuance. Seriously.

Rasa is also slang for sperm. The poli Kannadigan boys compare in talking among themselves of the quantity of the stuff they brought out in their self-reliant, single handed(!), manly, stationary-expeditions.

Usage

Boaster Bopanna: Ley maganey, I got one cupful of rasa yesterday evening. It was after a long gap. Sigh!

RAC

5 1
Abbreviation.
0

Definition

Reserved Against Cancellation.

When you intend to make a booking for a long-distance train or bus journey, tickets are available in 3 flavors - Confirmed, RAC or Waitlisted.

RAC is halfway between confirmed and waitlisted. RAC is your friend, RAC is good for you. You have a seat, but no sleeping berth. You are on your way to visit your engle in your beloved naadu.

In romance, though, RAC is your foe. It is that which allows a pretty lass to take over your entire existence in the hope that one day she will be yours. But alas, it is not to be. She has reserved you, but will not confirm you. She has twisted you around her little finger, but her heart pines for someone else. But poor fellow, you don't know that, no?

RAC is a state of unrequited love. It is but a state of mind.

Usage

"What a relief! 2 confirmed, 2 RAC. Harish and Lata can sleep on the same berth at least!"

"She will keep you RAC lifelong, macha! Wake up!"

Definition

A rite of passage at every boy's school and college in India. The new batch of students get "ragged" and fingered and sometimes kolted by their seniors. Akin to hazing at fraternities.

Sometimes the ragging can be harmless and benign (like making someone measure the size of a football field with a reynolds pen). But at times ragging can be particularly gruesome like making men stand in a line nanga by a train station etc.

For some it is natural form of assimilation. For others (puskee fellows) it can cause permanent damage to the psyche.

Usage

Roshan tried to act like a studmuffin on day one at IIT. They quickly put him in his place. He got majorly ragged. They paraded him into the girls hostel naked and made him sing nursery rhymes.
