Gult Guilty

Our love for the gult language never seems to cease. Last time around we spoke about the gult word "randi " (it means "to come"... the "please welcome" types you double minded dholkis) that is not too well taken in the Hindi Language. We thought the list ended there...

Until the other day when we were having snacks in office. When one gult colleague of mine, called out to the other gult colleague from across the room screaming "Choosa? Choosa?"... (in an interrogative tone)

To poor non-gults like us, "Choosa?" is a hindi word and in hindi it means "Did you Suck"?... and to top it up, it didnt go down very well with dirty minded people like us... and how can it.... when two guys discuss things like "Did you suck"... and that too in public... and that too at the highest decibel level...

Only after later introspection did we realise that the medium of communication used by these two people was not Hindi, but Telugu... and in telugu "Choosa?" means "Did you see?"... They were checkin out some hot gal out there.... sheeeesh... we and our dirty minds :)

So all you non gults beware of this word too... after all educatiing you guys and taking you to a iyer level is our vision/mission...

adios...

Scene 1:
A northie, well mannered girl gets admission in a andhra college.First day in the college.
The class is going on.She's late for the class.She asks the prof:-
"May i come in??"

"RANDI"..he shouts. The girl is dumbstruck and disappears from the seen.

THe boys in the class ask each other in hushed tones

" Choosaa? Choosaa??"

To a Gult it absolutely makes sense..
And to a Non-gult it makes Sense too..isn't it??:D:D

From a gulti...and old worn joke:

On a flight, James Bond was sitting next to a Telugu guy.
Telugu Guy: "Hello, may I know your name please?"
James Bond: "My name is Bond" continuing in his inimitable style, "Bond...James Bond"
Then Bond asks: "And you?"
Telugu Guy: " My name is Rao...Siva Rao...Samba Siva Rao...Venkata Samba Siva Rao...Yarlagadda Venkata Samba Siva Rao...Rajasekhara Yarlagadda Venkata Samba Siva Rao...Sitaramanjaneyula Rajasekhara Yarlagadda Venkata Samba Siva Rao...Vijayawada Sitaramanjaneyula Rajasekhara Yarlagadda Venkata Samba Siva Rao... .."

Since then whenever anyone asks Bond his name, he simply says "James Bond"

Hehe... maybe we should do a mallu version of this- for the education of the non-iyers, of course...

well.. there are some more interesting gult words... imagine this...

my uncle (who's a gult movie fan) comes in.. and out of the blue shouts.. (where my mom and aunt are sitting) - Rape chestanu!!
It figured, aunt was asking uncle to clean the house.. and repu in gult stands for tomorrow!

and for the dirty minds, there's the pumpestanu - it means, i'll send.. as in did u send me the mail... ippude pampestanu (i'll pump estanu now!) ;)
