10 WORDS MOST COMMONLY USED BY DELHI UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

by Team FUCCHA

 Delhi University is one of the most famous universities with students from all over India as well from the world. It has the fusion of many cultures, ethics and languages but the one thing it is most known for is its vibrant student life. If you are one of the DU students you must have come across these phrases for sure!

 

1) Jugaad- low-cost solution with innovation “Oye notes ka jugaad kar de yaar!” this is what you will definitely hear as the end semesters approach. It basically means getting the thing done by hook or by crook. Last minute cramming up or putting proxy for your friends, as DU students, jugaad is the right way to do it.

 

2) Bhasad- heights of frustration/disorder “Ye kya bhasad hai?” when anything goes wrong this is what you will hear from any DUite. Be it any internal coming up or any muddle up during fests, bhasad comes at the top of their vocabulary.

 

3) Totta- used to compliment girls “Totta lag rahi hai!” During the fest season guys mostly visit girls’ colleges to look up potential girlfriends and this is one of the cheesy one liners used.

 

4) Tom Uncle- a Maggi joint which is popular among DUites “Tom Uncle chal le yaar!” Tom Uncle’s Maggi point is the most sought after places by students for it’s never tasted- before Maggi. Who wants to eat canteen food when there’s Maggi, right?

 

5) Bajaod- to get totally stoned on pot/ to get yelled at by authority “Kya maal tha yaar, I got totally bajaod!” Or “marks nai mile toh I’m going to get totally bajaod” this is an everyday word at Delhi University especially in co-ed colleges.

 

6) Baiyaa- anglicized pronunciation of bhaiya word “Baiyaa Sarojini market chaloge” “60 rupaye” “Baiyaa 40 mein chalo na” This is something every Delhi girl can relate to, addressing auto, rickshaw wallas as Baiya and haggling with them for the auto fare. Because if you are a DU girl Sarojini Nagar market is a mandatory monthly trip for you if not weekly, after all, which girl does not love to shop and haggle while you are at it?

 

7) Ciggie- short for cigarette “Get me a ciggie” whether it’s the north or the south campus, ciggie or sutta is the norm in most colleges. There are even specific spots in the campus where you catch up over a ciggie.

 

8) Kalesh- argument over any topic “Tu kalesh na kar yaar” this is used by the youth instead of the word jhagda which also means the same.

 

9) Like- sort of a conjunction that you add in sentences as much as possible “I was like so totally like fried and it was like so messy like you know...” it’s a way of saying mostly by girls so as to lengthen what you say, most probably. I never really got the hang of it. :-P

 

10) Bhains ki Aankh- Hindi style of saying what the fuck “Teri bhains ki aankh” it’s a very common and casual usage mostly by students who don’t want to swear in public and it’s used in any occasion over any issue. Because buffaloes won’t understand it anyway. Of course, any word is incomplete without the use of “io” at the end like “notes le lio” or “khana le aio”. That’s the DU way for you.
