What the @*#$!!%&*#@!
Well, I recently observed something really funny in the train, where 2 college chicks were arguing with a fisher-woman!
It was quite easy for the "machhi wali" to start the abusive conversation, she went on giving all the a-z gaalis fed in her dictionary, while the 2 girls tried their best to over-power her by giving few and power-less, thakela gaalis in English, which did not even carry any potential.
Result: The machhi wali won the war, even though she was wrong as she should have travelled in the luggage compartment. BUT WHO CAN MESS WITH THESE NAVVAARI SAREE CLAD PHYSICALLY AND VERBALLY STRONG WOMEN? :D
The college chicks lost, because they didn't have the knack of how they could abuse the woman without even actually using the obvious words, making themselves feel less guilty about their acts.
Here I am, with something I concluded from that war. It's about how people can use alternatives for abusive words. Ever wondered how to abuse a person, you wanna badly give "gaalis" to, without actually offending him/her??
Below are the "vishesh tippanis" folks ;) am sure you all follow some bits of it, unconsciously! :D
*oh FREAK!!! (a better alternative for the "f" word
*oh FISH!!! (another one)
*what the hell!!! (c'mon,i know u want to use the "f" word :P)
*what the F! (even better)
*u r a Bloody Bean!!! (everyone knows what a she-dog means)
*Aye, saale PENCHOR!!! (the lip movements are more than enough here, no need of sound)
*He is such a chu... (yeah right, 3 letters are just fine)
*Shut up, CUSTARD!! (err, we know the B-word here, Sir!)
*BC..MC.. These abbreviations are actually easier to say, and imply less insult to the listener.
*Maa ki Jai ( well, better than specifying the eye!)
*Son of a Beast (lol, like we don't know what beast means here! :P )
Well, somehow I have also seen that it's easier to give English Gaalis like F***, a**hole or bas****, (which are most commonly used) compared to their Hindi counterparts.
Don't know why, but they somehow sound worse in Hindi! English feels less offending.. hehe!!
Please suggest some more if you've heard them, lets add on to this great Knowledge! Let there be light !
ps: Definition of Gaa-Lee-Yaa : “Gaalis” are a good stress buster when someone is annoyed :P
