Almost as ubiquitous as stamp paper and far more powerful than a character certificate, a "no objection certificate" or NOC gets less press than it warrants and more use than it deserves.

Let's say you need a water connection to your house and you contact the local water board and request a connection. First of all, park your car outside the house immijetly. Now, first they will provide you with a No Objection Certificated to state unequivocally that they Do Not Object to your rather reasonable request for running water in your home. Then you can show them the NOC to demonstrate that they have not objected to your request for a water connection. When they see that they have Not Objected to said request, it's clear to them that the next step is to dig an open ditch outside your house after moving your driveway gravel stones to the side. Aren't you glad you parked your car outside the house?

Usage

Shyamala: "Bindu, I am sick of this Arts & Literature nonsense I say, these profs are useless. I asked Ma'am how I can change to Commerce stream and she told to get a No Objection Certificate from the Proctor"
Bindu: "Proctor aa? What nonsense, what does the dorm fellow have anything to do with your courses?"
Shyamala: "I don't know ma, but to change the course of my life I need that bloody No Objection Certificate somehow"
Bindu: "So did you ask him?"
Shyamala: "Ya, he objected... said he did Commerce stream and now he's a dorm Proctor... and Arundhati Roy did Arts & Literature it simms."
Bindu: "Ya, ya, but she landed up in jail, don't forget!"

Definition

"No body catch" refers to an often invoked rule in gully cricket, which states that the batsmen cannot be declared out if he is caught by a fielder after the ball has hit any part of his anatomy. It must be pointed out here that body catch is, however, a legally accepted form of dismissal in most classroom cricket and corridor cricket games. Body catch rule is very effective since the LBW rule usually does not apply in such games (due to absence of an umpire) and therefore it is an attempt to ensure that the useless batsment does not block every ball with his legs.

Usage

Sreesanth: "Quick lets start the game before that useless fellow Sachin comes otherwise he won't give us batting only.."

Bhajji: "Dai useless, the umpire has not yet come da, how can we start..one tight slap you will get"

Mahendra: "No no he is right lets start off da, we will keep body catches and no LBW rule.."

You are riding Yezdi and taking blind turn at foot of KGA golf course. A BTS bus comes thundering down the wrong side of the road, just so that it can avoid waiting in traffic when the light changes.

You swerve and narrowly avoid being flattened by said bus. You go up to the driver and express your outrage at being nearly killed by his foolish behaviour. Driver leans out of the window and says, "Nothing happened no? Why are you getting upset?"

Nothing happened no. The standard response to anybody on Bangalore roads who is outraged at having been almost killed or maimed for life by a bus, tempo, Sumo or auto.

The story above ends happily. The Yezdi rider delivered one left-hand slap so hard, the bus driver's face actually rippled and the Yezdi rider's hand stung for ten minutes after. Something happened. YES!

No, this is not a pencil that pokes its nose into someone else's business. Rather, it is a phrase used by LKG/UKG/1st standard teachers to describe a pencil that is as small as one's nose and hence needs to be thrown away.

Imagine an enthu cutlet earnest teacher looking for a movie at a famous video rental place on Church Street. He is completely engrossed in making a choice between 'Gandhi and the Art of Meditation' and 'Was Hitler and Aryan? A treatise of the real reason behind WW Two". A rude interruption of uniformed men whose job is to catch adults checking out adult movies (go figure!) disturbs him. So the following conversation follows:
Uniformed Men: (picking out a science fiction movie with a lurid cover of woman with the interesting advantage of wearing her underwear outside of her stretch pants) And what is this movie about?
Man behind desk: Science fiction, Saar. Good movie, Saar.
Uniformed man: (not letting his mustache lose it's bristle) Humph. It is not-at-all looking like science to me.

Now your line is clear is a phrase born of the marriage between middle-class India's (inevitable) association with the Indian Railways, & an uncontrollable desire to simsimply crack PJs.* The 'line' in question is a Railway line..every once in a while, trains plying across the potentially conflicting criss-cross of tracks across the country mustinshould receive a 'line clear' signal from a signalman before they can go ahead. No signal, & a trainful of irritated passengers has to wait for hours on end in the middle of nowhere until the 'line clear' signal comes through.

In much the same manner:

A dutiful Indian older brother cannot think of getting married until his younger sister (of marriageable age) does. It's simply not done. Since these are matters (ayyo, not THESE matters, silly!) of grave significance in one's life, you can take it for granted that its going to take it's time... In the interim, poor big brother chews his fingernails, sweats it out and waits.

Once she's settled, though, the family-owned cage of mad-buffaloes is flung open & all it's supressed humour sense unleashed. The poor brother will be ribbed mercilessly at yeach and yevry function about his bachelor state & how that mustinshould change soon.

*Do accompany phrase with a dig in the fellow's ribs, and/or sly grin, and/or mass guffaw, and/or naughty slanting look, and/or bhangra, and/or enydhing that your little heart desires. Its okay. Entertainment tax we will not collect. (Only just you invite us for the wedding sadya. Slurp. Veri much we are lauing wedding sadyas)

Usage

Naughty Indian uncle: *winking & digging Chandru's ribs* yeno, badmasha? Now your line is clear, thumba happy you are aa?
Aunty & all the 50 cousins: yes yes, now your line is clear, shall we look for alliance?
Chandru: ayyo, NOW you'll start looking aa? Planning is very pyethetic I tell you. I aldreddy 'looked' & closed the deal with same-area-Soumya. *with a cowboy swagger* Now kamaan, hurry-up, make the arrangements I say!!

The sudden pangs of nostalgia and listlessness that Indians abroad feel when they look back at a simpler and more idyllic time in their lives.

A time when crank calls, giant robot and Doordarshan passed for entertainment. When mac fast + thumbs up + joy ice cream + game of dumb charades and marbles = heaven. Where lau blossomed during innocent games of dark room, lock and key or during tuitions with o.p sinhal in the backdrop. When riding your kiney through cycle gaps in the monsoon made you feel like a hero. When taking a cold bucket bath because the geyser didn't work during load shedding was charming....when your biggest worry in the world was getting home on time for your mothers chutney sandwiches and some gold spot...

Usage

Chintu: Why are you looking into outer space like a mental case?
Bablu: Feeling nostalginida mam. Give me 10 minutes. Need my Samosapedia fix.

Short for non-vegetarian, a collective term for all meat, poultry, and fish based dishes, a necessary distinction in a country where the primary culinary force is vegetarian cuisine. This is despite a deep and wonderful tradition of meat and fish preparations all over South Asia. In most menus you'll find two main sections, Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian.

Going along with this assumption that veg is the mainstream and righteous path and the non-veg, well, not-so-much, the term is also carries the implication of something off-colour, sidey, morally objectionable, even sexually perverse.

Usage

Raghu: Ok chaps, I'm cutting...
Shyam: Why suddenly like that?
Raghu: Have to go meet Seetha at her house, no?
Moses: Hmm. Veg or Non-veg?
