INFORMAL PHRASES USED IN SPOKEN HINDI

These phrases are very popular during daily life conversations, phone conversations, misunderstandings, fights and, of course, movies.
I do not intend to promote the bad behavior and verbal fights, however I thought it would be fun to introduce rude informal phrases that are not in textbooks. When living or traveling in India, majority of the people that you will meet will be uneducated and not very soft spoken. This post will serve as a reference to reader’s curiosity.
