Irritating Phrases Spoken By Indians

This is a follow up to the 'Top 10 most irritating English phrases' post...There are some phrases spoken by Indians which irritate me a lot...They are:

- Timepass

- Fuchcha (used in Delhi University...Refers to a college fresher)

- Fundu (Again, used in Delhi in lieu of fundamental)

- K.Nags (Kamala Nagar), Def. Col (Defence Colony)- I hate the Indian penchant for shortening names

- Arre yaar

- Do the needful

- Tight slap (does a tight slap hurt more than a regular one?)

- Isn't it? (e.g. "You must be hungry, isn't it?)

- Will try my level best

- Don't be pricey

- Prepone

- Mention not

- The current has gone (instead of "the power has gone")

- The use of the word "boy" instead of "man" (e.g. cricketers are called boys..."The boys played well today")

- Convented

- I will make a move now
