Pejorative phrase meaning "damaged goods". Also referred to as Painted and Dented by those unfamiliar with gujjris.

Apparently a way of describing any woman who is not a sati savitri and who therefore must be a ultra-fast POMO chick of some sort. Though why one would compare ladice of any type to used goods is beyond comprehension.

The term is perhaps derived from the "make-up" that needs to be applied before selling a "banged-up" gaddi on the second-hand market. Imagine buying a "lightly used" Yezdi for sale in a chor bazaar. The chalu seller hides the dent with the paint and with a straight face say it's first class and jugaad-free. Such must be the attitude of any woman standing up against the excessive bandobast in Delhi today. Whattey naansense, I say!

Popularized by our very own Pranab da's very own Bangla son: Abhijit Mukherjee, one can also say it refers to the anachronistic and chauvinistic Uncleji ideologies that passes off as cultural leadership in India today.

With specimens like this as prominent netas and law makers, it may just be time for aam aadmi put on a monkey cap and pray to Hey Bhagwan for this world to end.

For more action-oriented junta types, kindly do the needful and join up with like-minded types like Society of Painted Dented Ladies of India, one of whom has responded to the cant and rubbish.

Usage

You can check out the woriginal at approx. 0:56 in this video.

Or read the translation below...

Translation:
"What's basically happening in Delhi is a lot like Egypt or elsewhere, where there's something called the Pink Revolution, which has very little connection with ground realities. In India, staging candle-lit marches, going to disco - we did all this during our student life too, we were students too - I know every well what kind of character students should have. Those who claim to be students - I can see many beautiful ladice among them - highly dented and painted - they're giving interviews on TV, they've brought their children to show them the scenes. I have grave doubts whether they're students, because shundoris of that age are generally not good students."

nb: The Pink Revolution was not in Egypt but in Kyrgyzstan, no?

1. Latest form of blackface theatre, this time depicting pandering stereotypes of desi folk in the US.

Used to be sole provenance of FOB / ABCD actors with monosyllabic/generic stage names ("Hey, call me Kumar! ") but lately has gone more mainstream.

A brownface character is typically obsessed with, by and from a dau, lau or semi-arranged marriage; or all of the above.


2. The color of a paleface firang once he/she has mud or Number Two thrown on it. Usually because the firang has done something bad to deserve an involuntary headbath.


3. Affectionate dimunitive for Ass-ton Kutcher, or for any other waste fellow chillar enough to make a career out of being consistently faltu and ghati.

Usage

Brownface John: (in a fake Indian accent) "Why don't you take me to your convenience store so I can meet your sister and toot-toot-toot-toot?" (bobblehead)

Desi Kunal: "Behenchod!. Stop the natak! You can't be Apu because you're too faltu to run a 7-11. And you can't be Koothrapali because you're too tubelight to be an astrophysicist."

Brownface John: "OK OK, at least can you say 'Thank you come again!' ?"

Rest of World: Blech!

simp simply

\Simp simp-lee\
6 4
Exclamation.
0

Definition

Extreme and superlative form of simply.

Typically used in an accusatory or aggrieved way suggesting that the referred to activity, event or noun is false, misleading, cunning, thieving or generally speaking disingenuous.

Often used as a smokescreen to deflect criticism when caught red-handed.

Derived from the Kannada phrase "sum-sumne" meaning, er, simp-simply

one of a giant class of South Indian English phrases that make no sense in English and have to be translated into Kannada, or Tamil to make sense.

Usage

Gopal (caught with hand in cookie jar) : " Simp-simply why you are calling me thief? I was just cleaning!!"

Ramesh: "That Gopal is so good, no? Other day I saw him helping old lady across street"
Venkat: "Simp-simply he must be doing. God knows whatandall he must have taken from her bag!"

Mo-pillai

\Mo-pill-ay\
38 8
Noun. April 21, 2012, Word of the Day
0

Definition

Modern maappillai . Under Condom theory this is the theoretical and actual anti-particle to the POMO Chick .

It is similar to the Pomo chick in mass-energy, but opposed on all other dimensions like spin, charge, literary pretensions, movement in space-time, and willingness to tolerate general or moral relativism.

Both POMO chick and Mo-pillai are produced by accelerating Jesuit theology to high velocity and colliding it with TamBrahm strictures in single-sex convented environments otherwise known as the LHC or Large Hard-on Colluder. Yield is enhanced by putting both particles through a sequence of expensive lau failures. The collisions produces a matched pair of POMO chick and Mo-pillai who depart to opposite ends of the universe at great velocity but in opposite ideological directions. One particle is moving forward in time and the other is moving backward, but sadly due to general and moral relativity one is unable to determine which is which.

Examples of movement in space time, showing Condom coupling

Pomo chicks: St. Stephens/LSR --> LSE --> Gayathri Spivak--> useless liberal arts degree --> jhola + cause --> angrily liberate the females

Mopillai: REC Guindy --> Illinois Insititute of Technology --> Freidrich Hayek --> useless engineering degree --> mortgage + stock options --> angrily enforce the patriarchy

The particles cyclically recollide every winter at Recyclotron (otherwise known as Bangalore Club, or Tamil-matrimony.com) spitting off a random collection of quirks (top, bottom, charm, strange etc.) , leapt-on jokes and of course the elusive Higgs Boozon.

The ultimate fate of the POMO chick and the Mo-pillai is to demolish each other in a spectacular bout of radiation annihilation otherwise known as a semi-arranged lau marriage.

Usage

Newton: For every POMO chick there is an equal and opposite Mo-pillai

Einstein: POMO chick + Mo-pillai = dishoom dishoom

FIrst entered in the Hobson-Jobson, this is derived from a homophonic Hindi word. It simply means "preparation"

However, owing to its almost exclusive usage by the police in India it has come to mean "security arrangements by the local police / militia / mafia / political party."

It is now marked by an excess of men in uniforms, paid audience / agitators, stupidly placed barricades and monstrous traffic jams,

Ambitious mamas in Bangalore are known to say "Bandh or Bust", which is a civil society way of saying "Double or Nothing"

Usage

The wedding of the CM's son saw a massive bandobast stalling traffic from MG Road to the airport. Several commuters committed suicide out of frustration.

Used also as a metaphor akin to English "mincemeat" meaning destroyed. Vegetarians in South India prefer to replace korma with chitranna to achieve the same effect.

Usage

Harsha: Dai, if you put on my girl I will make korma out of you!
