Skele

Definition

Short for skeleton. A name given to reed-thin specimens of the human race — but mostly that monkey you hang out with during lunch breaks in the school mudground.

Strangely enough, this term is almost exclusively used for really skinny girls. Stranger though, the only ones using them are her fatter, jealous female friends.

Usage

Rashmi (to skele sitting at the corner of the bench, aisle side): Ay skele ... don't have to move so much to let me through ... I can pass through you even in a BMTC bus at 6'O clock.

Skele (muttering to herself after Rashmi has left the classroom): Laugh now ... let's see which girl in this bench becomes India's next beauty queen!

Definition

A wooden foot rule used as a fuel gauge in autos by drivers.
The auto driver intermittently checks the level of petrol by dipping a scale into the tank and makes sure that it has just enough-not too much, not too less- of the fuel.
Because usually the autos haven't had any fuel gauge, and also he has to return the vehicle at the end of his shift with just a little of fuel, roughly as much as was in it in the beginning of the shift.

He will lose money if he returns the auto with more petrol, and the owner will not like it if he gives it back nearly dry.

Usage

Auto drivers specifically mark their wooden scale for different levels to quantify the fuel in the tank, translating it into liter terms.

IndiaTimes once ranked this one of the Top 25 Must See Bollywood films of all time. Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Jaya Bhaduri and Amjad Khan, this film features tons of plot masala.

Two hapless criminals, Veer and Jai, are recruited to defend the village of Ramgarh from the notorious dacoit Gabbar Singh, played by Amjad Khan, who set the bar high for Bollywood villainry. And Amitabh Bachchan's Jai prepared Bollywood for the angry young man archetype: wronged, pouting, and latently heroic, with a measured seduction of the heroine, who herself embodies noble archetypes of South Asian femininity. Also, Amitabh Bachchan sports one in a series of truly bad haircuts.

Usage

Me: Let's watch Sholay!
She: (resigned) *sigh OK. You always want to watch Sholay. No obsessing over the fly-swatting scene!
Me: It borders on Kurosawa-esque!
