There were some oft used words/ phrases while we played cricket:
• Pinda ball – The ball that rolls instead of rising off the pitch towards the bat
• 1D, 2D…some amongst us used to say DIKK… – Short for declared! It actually meant that there was no need to run when the ball went towards some mori or if it hit some garage shutter.
• Joker – Can play on both sides
• Current illa – This had nothing to do with Electricity. This meant that the guy bowling needed to touch the ball to the brick (i.e. the wicket) when the fielder threw [he couldn’t have a leg on the brick and be a lazy ‘um.
• Batting side fielding illa – When there were excess people playing in a small place. This happened during holidays when friend’s cousins joined us.
• Leg side runs illa – As opposed to the previous point, this happened when there was a shortage of guys in the team. i.e. when most friends went to their cousin’s houses for holidays.
• One Pitch Out – This was considered low class. Not challenging enough. Instead of a full toss catch, even a single pitch catch was considered out. Rule ok for 1st or 2nd std kids.
• Ajji mane Out / Compound olage full toss out – There were some elderly folks who were anti-children. If the ball went to the compounds of these houses, we could as well forget the ball. They would not give it back. Hence, this rule.
• Full toss on the ‘Atta’ Six – On the other hand, there were child-friendly houses who would give back the ball with a smile and also some chakkuli, kodubale…even if the ball went into the kitchen! For such houses, if the ball went on the Atta, it meant a SIX!
• Full toss on the Garage – Sometimes OUT, sometimes six…. depended on the whims and fancy of the guy owning the bat/ the Garage!
• Khamba ‘Four’ – This was one of the boundary points. If the ball crossed the far off KEB pole, it meant a 4.
• Khali ‘site’ out – ‘coz it was full of parthenium…and we were afraid there were some busss paamb!

I am sure I’ve left out quite a few… will be great if you can add.

PILLARI GEETHE PARODY by Ramakrishna Bellur Shivaram

August 30, 2012

[Apologies for the video quality – incidentally this is the first ever video to be posted on RwB]

Parody composed and sung by: ramakrishna bellur shivaram

india is one nation full of sensation
where ever you see there is commotion

(sri gananatha)
enter any place there is politics
talk to anyone & you will see gimmicks

(siddha charana)
currently there is lot of inflation
rise in prices is the cause of frustration

(sakala vidya)
backward classes want lot of reservation
ladies only want woman’s liberation

cricket is our common religion
people following it make a huge legion

people are crazy about filmstars
they sit on the tree to see a superstar

our prime minister is a mute puppet
only if madam says he will read this couplet

people are busy buying property
firstly they must learn to make a proper tea


(kereya neeranu)
children daily carry heavy bags to the school
some of them don’t study and think it is very cool

kids feel like watching CN-POGO and everything
but parents are strict and say NO to everything!

(sri purandara)
where ever you see there is lot of competition
only if you are lucky you will get recognition

passing an exam is just not the only thing
everyday life is where you must achieve something


people are only bothered
about money today
honest people are becoming
extinct day-by-day

we see a lot of jams
we read about only scams
if you see Twenty-20
its simply wham bam

terrorism is becoming a common thing
just like hazare sitting and fasting

be it the house or office or parliament
wherever you see woman is dominant

national security is posing a big threat
rise in the cyber crimes are posing a bigger threat

but the common man is ignorant of all this
because he still believes ignorance is bliss

those who heard this and also read it along
will have a great life from rk now its so long!
