This one's  for all those who enjoy Punglish! I like 'A is for Aiscreame' but read on.....

A is for Adjust. Punjabis will always ask you to adjust whenever they
want to push you around.

B is for Backside, and it has nothing to do with your bum, it is an
instruction to go to the rear of a building, or block, or shop or

C is for Cloney and its not a process for replicating sheep, nor is
its first name George. It is merely an area where people live e.g.
'Defence Cloney'.

E is for Expanditure (yes,as per the Punjoo lexicon, this IS the correct spelling and pronounciation). Punjabis are never shy of spending money - the
latest cars, gadgets, marble floors: their ambitions are always

F is for Fackade, and even though it sounds like a bad word it is
actually just the front of a building (with backside being the back,
of course).

G is for Gaddi, and the way a Punjabi can pilot his gaddi puts any F1
driver to shame. (If the Grand Prix does come to Delhi there's no way
Hamilton, Alonso or Kimi can overtake Balvinder, Jasvinder or

H is for 'Ho Jayega Ji', and the moment you hear that you have to be
careful because you can be reasonably sure it's not going to happen.

I is for Intezaar, and to know more about it see P.

J is for Jindagi, and if there's one person who knows how to live life
to the fullest it's a Punjabi.

K is for Khanna, Khurana, etc, the Punjabi equivalent of the Joneses
(e.g.'Keeping up with the Khuranas ji')

L is for Lovely, but unfortunately she almost never is. Also for LOIN!!!

M is for 'Mrooti', the car that an entire generation of Punjabis were
in love with.

N is for 'No Problem Ji.' To find out how that works see

O is for Oye, which can be surprise (Oyye!), a greeting (Oyy!), anger
(OYY!) or pain (Oy oy oy...).

P is for Panch Mint, and no matter how near (1 km) or far (100 km) a
Punjabi is from you he always says he'll reach you in panch mint (5

Q is for Queue, a word completely untranslateable into Punjabi.

R is for Riks, and a Punjabi is always prepared to take one (risk),
even if the odds are against him.

S is for Sweetie, Sunny, Simmi and Sonu, who seem to own half the cars
in Delhi. (The other half by their Pappas - like 'Sweetie de Pappa di

T is for the official bird of Punjab: Tandoori Chicken.

U is for when you lose your sex appeal and become 'Uncle-ji'

V is for VIP phone numbers @ Rs 15 lakh and counting.

W is for Whan, as in 'Whan are you coming, ji?'

X is for the many X-rated words that flow freely in all Punjabi conversations.

Y is for 'You nonsense', when anger replaces vocabulary in a shouting match.

Z is for Jigjag. (Please refer to G, M and P)
