In Indonesia,Kota means "City" .
In India,Kota is often referred to as breeding ground of IITians, as it is widely regarded as the best place to prepare for the prestigious IIT JEE. Popular coaching instituties include Career Point, Vibrant Academy and Bansal classes .
A distinguishing aspect about 'Kota coaching' is learning on classification basis : Students are sorted to classes in order of their intelligence. This process facilitates the aspirants to study in a group with similar aptitude.

In short , Kota is THE place in India to 'learn to master and to take a broad perspective; to solve problems and to seize tomorrow's opportunities in IIT JEE'

Usage

The use of 'Kota' adds a premium tag to IIT coaching classes . For example 'Bansal Kota Coaching' implies higher chances of clearing IIT JEE.

Commom thought-bubble in Indian parents eager to see their offspring in IIT : 'My son scored 78% in PCM in class 12th. Let him drop a year. I think Kota coaching will help him.FIITJEE correspondence material does not work.'

Duffer. Idiot. Dim-wit. Big part of Punjabi slang. The word literally means "donkey", which is never a great compliment in any language.

Employed often by Sardars or Delhi-ites, especially when irritated or annoyed. Usage varies widely based on the situation, from affectionate to friendly to mildly offensive to I'm-feeling-suicidal-today.

The word has gender specific forms (Male : Khota, Female : Khotee). A gender-neutral version exists too, which works just as well for an entire herd of duffers (Khotey)

Usage

Kothi means monkey in Kannada. The word kothi (or koti) is also used in the following fashion across India, similar to the Kathoey of Thailand, although kothis are often distinguished from hijras. Kothis are regarded as feminine men or boys who take a feminine role in sex with men, but do not live in the kind of intentional communities that hijras usually live in. Additionally, not all kothis have undergone initiation rites or the body modification steps to become a hijra.

Usage

Ryan: Macha go hit on that chick standing by the bar
Arun: No yaa, she will reject me yaa
Ryan: Just go. Life is short and so are you.
