Today , I was just browsing through Orkut and I came across this mind-blowing community “AMA KHA BHOPALI”…..mann the community rocks totally (exclusively for bhopalis)…..the guys have done a stupendous job ….a great compilation of the “bhopali” lingo and “bhopali ” slangs….GOD i miss them like hell….especially those mini-bus rides from Campion square to royal market in the scorching heat and the bus conductors shouting at the top of their voices – “maka – naka – jyoti – sargam – bush -shtaind”……now thats what you call a “fultoo”bhopali expirience.
I am presenting here some of the bhopali slangs ,taken from the community itself so that the unfortunate non – bhopalis can get a glimpse of what it means to be a true “Bhopali”.

*Amma khan yeh keympian school toh bhopal ka sabsey behtarin school hega ..!!

*Ustaad rokke challnaa, ek ladies aa ri hegi! (in minibus/tempo)

*Bhot lehra riya hega.(for piloting)

*Miya kallaat (kal-raat) se bhot STD (acidity) ho ri hegi pet mein

*Lapak maal hai be -girl is so beautiful.

*Ko Khan, Kaise? – How are you?

*Ama aapki gaadi to paidal ho gayi – Engine is seized

*Aliases for girlfriend – Seat, Setting, Kancha, Got, Goti, Daav, Female, Fanti

minibus blues
# are madam bachon ko godh mein bitha lo (to manke place in mini bus)
# Aajaao bashten bashten bashten (Bus stand)
# Second Panch Cheh Saat Dus Gyarah Gyarah Sau. Minibus conductor reciting the route of the bus.
# Rok Ke. Minibus conductor asking the Driver to stop to pickup or drop off passenger

* Kon Khan Kan Ja Riye Ho!!(where r u going?)

* Haan Khan Pathan Khairiyat!!! (Asking the person if he is alright)

* kalmein kaise beh rahi hai tumhari(a comment on side-locks)

* chachaooooo ekdum bhannaat lag riya hega

* (……..name of a person)Bhai Ko- (short for ……… bhai ko salaam) El ke baaju mein……….are kha dhyaan se tameez se iscreeech na aa jaye

    Cool maan..
    In IIIT, Bhopalis are at the extreme end of the spectrum. On one hand, we have people like Soni, Khare, you etc and the other end … “Street level” 😀

    how about:

    Thoo Aaa riya hain ki Jaa riya hai- Are you coming or going?

    Mein Aa riya hoon? I am coming

    Kyo Khan (n is silent)- whats up?

    Mere Kane ek rupaih bhi nahi hai- I am broke.

    Maine keya Paan khalo miyan ( this is a classic)- Please have some Paan.

    Kya keh riye ho mian- what the heck are you saying?

    Maine kiya Aish-bagh ishtadium chalo, Saleem bhai aur yusuf bahi khel riya hega – Lets go

    to Aish bagh stadium and watch Saleem Abbasi and Mohd. Yusuf play.

    Mind you, I grew up in bhopal from 1968 to 1980. never really spent much time there after.

    however. the Thangewallahs near old railway station, bharat talkies, the crowded and congested streets near laxmi talkies where i used to go to buy used text books for school, Bogda Pul, etc are fresh on my mind. The snack at laxmi talkies used to be a giant papad which you could munch on for a good part of the movie. Some of the tea stalls in old bhopal would sell their chai with salt instead of sugar. I had a friend who used to live in a grand haveli in old bhopal which would look like a slum from outside. Let’s not forget the famous or infamous mangalwara where all the eunuchs lived and harassed the daylights out of people all over bhopal. I was terrified of them but now thinking back about them it was funny as hell how they would sing for any special occasions and if you don’t give them money, they would show you their private parts :-).

    New Bhopal with TT Nagar, BHel etc are like any other city nothing really to write about. I lived in N2 quarters in Govindpura, near TRT and the N1 quarters.

    thanks for the memories……..
