Sweet Hyderabadi Language

  When somebody tries to give big lecture telling people what is right
andwrong  ”Khaali peeli dimaag kharab karra”
 
When somebody tries to be over smart “hush shari kar ra saala”
 
When somebody asks address then whoever hears him asking the address
comes near his vehichle and starts giving him direction “Woh jo pan ka dabba dikh ra aage uske baad 2 qadam pe ek galli hain, wahan left mudhiye, phir ek hajjam ki dukan aaingi, usku lagke ek galli hain, usme chautha makaan hain right ko. Peele color ki gate hai dekho”
 
Early morning in almost all mohallas of hyd there would be big sound of
“Cheete wale mauz, 2 rupiye dazan”
 
When some kid does not go to school and is seen playing by any adult of
the
mohalla “Kya re es-school nahin jaake galli main goliyan khel ra, thair
tumhare baava ko boltaun sham ku”
 
Behind many autos “Maa ki dua”
 
Standard Bargaining “Rickshaw Tappa Chabutra chodh te kya. 4 rupie
hote.2detiyu, chalte to bolo . Kya Qala itne kam bolrai aap. Accha 3 rupiye
de do. Accha chalo”
 
Elderly people of the mohalla at hotel “Aaj kal ke potte, pottiyon ke
dimaaga kharab ho gaye Abdul Bhai. Potton to subah sham cricket hain,
pottiyon ko subah sham tv, gaana bajana bas yahi hain dekho. Sahin
bolrain
 
Khader Bhai, in logon ka kya hota ki aage, choto badon ki tameez hi
nahin hain yeh laundon main. Apne bachpane main, badon ke samne topi pahne bagair nahin jaate the apan loga”.
 
When they are having this discussion a small 6 year kid is going to
hotel to bring chai for his father. While passing by this group he is singing a
chalu song outloud “Maza karle meri jaan, phir se na honge jawan. Bura wura mat kahon, bura hain shaitan. Phir se na honge jawan re jawan -----". Imagine the faces of the oldies
 
Friends going to movie
 
Kaleem: Arre Abdul kaa ja ra re tip top hoke.
Abdul: Filim ku ja rau, chalta kya.
Kaleem: Nahin tu jaa, main fakhad hoon.
Abdul: Kare na pinde ki baat. Tumhare ku paise kaun diyon bole. Tu
Chal,
mere paas maal hain.
Kaleem: Happily accha kaunsa dekhenge
Abdul: Arre Coolie aayi re Yakut main.
Kaleem: Arre nakko re Yakut main, garmi se mar jaate.
Abdul: Arre parsu Khader jaake aaya Yakut ku. Bolra tha pankhe chalu
Karrain kate interval ke baad”
 
You have to be really true blue hyderabadi to understand this.
 
Saving from Mandi ka Sauda.”
8 year old Abdul is seen eating at Gacchup ki bandi by his friend khader
far away from his home.
Khader: dekh rao Abdul dekh rao tereku
Abdul: Arre tu idhar kahan se aaya re
Khader: Thair, boltau beta tumhare ammi ku tu idhar bandi pe khara tha
bolke
Abdul: Arre nakko bol re bade bhai, tere paira padh tau
Khader: Accha thode gacchup khilata kya nahin.
Abdul: Bandi wale isku 2 gacchup dalo.
Khader: Kahan se aaye re tere paas itne paise
Abdul: Aaj mandi gaya tha baap sauda laane.
Khader: Kitne maara.
Abdul: 4 rupie tees paise bache
Abdul: Tu nahin gaya kya aaj.
Khader: Arre kya b olo woh bandi waale ku. Iski maaki, Kamine ku aaj hi
aana tha ghar ku.”
 
After Moli Sahab giving lecture on not going to dargah “Ammi aaj moli
sahab bole darga ku nahin jaana kate. Chhup re potte. Moli Sahab ku kuch bhi
nahin malum. Unhon wahabde ho gaye kya"
 
Women watching movie and azaan goes on. Everyone while watching covers
their heads with their duppattas.
 
Kid caught by father playing in mohalla at time of exams “Abse nahin
kartau Pappa, Allah ke vaste mereku nakko maro.” Father gives him a sound
thrashing and says “Mohalle ke awara potton ke saath khelta rahta. Padhne
likhne ka shaukh hi nahin hain, bas awara gardi hona. Inhe aage jaake
rikshaw chalata dekho. Agar tu examo main fail hua to nanga karke ghar ke
bahar bada detaun nahin”.
 
By the way, you hydis know that this is a routine which happens all the
time and then when kid passes and the kids mother or grand mother scold the
father by saying "main boli mera baccha waqat par padh letain magar tumko
bas bechare bacche ku marna zaroori hain" then, even though the father is
happy but his standard answer will be "kaisa pass ho gaya ki, ummeed to
nahin dekhri thi".
 
 
When one Mohallas guy is in another Mohalla chasing a girl and that
Mohalle ke pahelwan catch him up "
 
Ghouse Pahelwan: Kya baat hain baba, bahut dikh rain aaj kal idhar aap.
Romeo: Nahin bhai aise hi jaa raha tha.
Ghouse Pahelwan: Aap acche ghar ke dikh rai baba, kayku karrai yeh
harkata.
Romeo: Main kya kara bhai.
Ghouse Pahelwan: (After giving a strong thappad) Nataka karre saale.
Pehchana re main kaun hoon. Yehi cheer detau tereku
Romeo: Arre kayku marrai bhai, main kya ra.
Ghouse Pahelwan: (Again giving a strong thappad) Phir bola. Bhag yahan se
fauran. Bade bade batan karra mere saamne. Agar ab ki baar mahalle main
dikha to yehi teri khabar khod detau"
 
 
 

Yaad Karo apne Hyderabad ko

 
 
Yaad Karo apne Hyderabad ko........7 samundar par se
yaad karo woh din aur raat.........
Woh Allahamdullilah ki biryani, woh diamond ki chai,
Woh radhey shyaam ki pani puri, woh chit chat ki chaat,
Woh Softy ki ice cream, Wah usme thi kuch baat.
Woh pulla reddy ki mithai, woh kamat ka dosa,
Woh Gokul ki pav bhaji aur Ramser ka samosa.

Woh local bus ka 'suffer', woh tank bund ki hawa,
Woh dutch roses ke kante aur lumbini park ka sama.

Woh december ki zara si sardi, woh baarishon ke mahiney,
Woh garmi ki chuttiyan, jab chute te thea paseeney.

Woh ramzan ki Haleem,woh paradise ki biryani,
Woh holi ki masti,aur navratri ka dandia.

Woh necklace road ka mohol, woh Gandipet ki leheren,
Woh doobte suraj ka nazara, Waah uske kya kehene.

Woh Karachi Bakery ke biscut, woh blue sea ki chai,
Woh Garden(restaurant) ke lukmi biscuit, woh galliyon ka "rabdi malai".

Woh bachpan key yaaden, woh gotion kaa khel,
Woh Indira paark ke jhaadiyan, jahaa hothey they mel.

Woh Minerva ka pop corn aur Stop or Shop mein shopping,
Woh James Street ka nazara aur Ameer pet ki building.

Woh Sangeet cinema ke queue, woh black ki pink ticket,
Woh Parade ka maidan, jahan bachche practice karte hain cricket.

Itni cheezen kehene ke baad, aur kitna karoon mein abaad,
Yeh shehar hain mera apna, jiska naam hai H Y D E R A B A A D!!!!!!!!

  Katmals? They are spread all over the city. Unlike usual Katmals( bed bugs) which suck our blood at night, Hyderabadi Katmals are a breed apart who does similar work during day time. Mind you their sting might cost you anywhere between Rs 50 to Rs 500/-. Well those not familiar to Hyderabad might wonder who Katmals are and what the word symbolizes? It is nothing but a friendly pseudonym for Hyderabadi Traffic Policemen.

They are most active in doing or rather undoing their job. One just cannot help seeing them at every other junction of the city, especially at the end of the month. The following is a typical conversation when they end up catching a scapegoat (Bakhra!!)

Katmal:Licence nikalo..
Bakhra:yelo saabb(with a triumphant look)
Katmal: (albeit disappointed)teek hain.Insurance Kaha hai?
Bakhra:yelloo Saab(with a secret smile)
Katmal:Pollution Check kidar hai???
Bakhra:Nahi hai saab (with a sheepish look)
Katmal:Chalo Inspector ke paas
Bakhra:Suno saab,apan apan settle karinge
Katmal:teek hai 300 rupya nikalo
Bhakra:Utna nahi hai saab
Katmal:Teek hai 200 nikalo
Bhakra:Saab bilkul nahi hai
katmal:Aabe chal inspector ke paas
Bhakra:Saab toda adjust karlona
Katmal:Teek hai 100 rupya nikal
Bhakra:Saab mere pareeshani samjo
Katmal:Aare bahut ho gaya.Chal abe challan likata hu..
Bhakra:teek hai saab raklo 50 rupya
Katmal:Finally he pockets it saying Kya Zamana aagaya.. Chal put yaha se
