The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
"Bandook" - "pukkah" - "dekko" - "bukshee". Any more?
Was only joking about the last one
There must be hundreds of them... even Wiki entry only lists a few:
jangli wallah-MOD civil servant
Thug-devotee of KALI-DURGA
I think 'bint' is arabic?
Thanks 4(T) I wont bother having endless hours of fun thinking of words and discussing them with my fellow members now. Don't suppose you've got the answers to tomorrow's Telegraph crossword have you? (sarcasm!)
I think bint is Arabic - but like charpoy, bandook etc it was used as slang by old soldiers born before about 1925.
Separate names with a comma.
