    I am loving the use of "powdery" thesedays to imply said person's cognitive abilities are impaired due to them sniffing 'powder'.

    Mummy daddy bacha is famous in almost every city of pakistan most of the people in rawalpindi use this for kids living in the twin city islamabad


    " It is true, Pakistan cricket is not defined by planning, it is not defined by team work and it is not defined by an entire match. It is defined by moments, moments of inspiration, moments of magic, moments when the unsung become the sung, when the world starts rotating in the opposite direction, when the abnormal becomes the normal, when delusion becomes logic – it is when the stars align.

    Kaddu like the vegetable. Ponka is derived from the punjabi for barking.

    Phat Gaye has the exact same meaning as ''sh*tting your pants'' and, as such, I tend to avoid it.

    still doesn't explain the connotation if its just a vegetable.

    Eg:

    'Kal class attend karogay?'
    'Kaddu!'

    Its understood it means No but why lol?

    My uncle who is with us in US right now uses the word Kaddu for everything. I am so tired of it.

    Aunty - Khana khane ke baad walk pe chaloongi.
    Uncle - Haan! Haan! Kaddu Chalegi

    Me - Uncle the kid will do homework after taking bath.
    Uncle - Kaddu Karega!

    I don't know if you are joking or not. Kaddu just means when in punjabi.

    I am sure you are talking about the kaddu which means "when" in Punjabi.

    Yes this is the context I meant it in/

    when someone finds a suggestion ridiculous they would say 'Kaddu jaoon ga' or sth of that sort

    bonga just seems too crass.

    'Chawal' reminds me of a good friend from back in the day. His every 3rd sentence included the phrase, 'chawal insaan'

    Hahaha alaad diii was a huge one from childhood, probably top on the list for me.

    Kahani khatam paisa hazam, more of a saying than slang I guess

    Gore ki aulaad if someone used too much English.

    Either will do, it depends on whether the chawwal in question is a major or minor transgression.

    The progenitor of this phrase is Mehmood Akhtar's character in the PTV serial Hawaaein, circa 1995. He plays a corrupt Pir in that show, and the phrase became so popular that everyone adopted it: from truckers to grandmas.
