Hindi slang words in the Oxford dictionary with their meanings!

No matter how rude or polite the fundamental scriptures of a particular language are, they will always end up having certain improvisations to their dialect based on the local diction, area, age and even an exclusive group. Slangs are such words that are used while conversing informally in a spoken language. They are ever changing and present in every subculture around the world.

In its earliest attested usage, slangs were referred to a rather low or disreputable vocabulary of a particular language. Therefore, it is amusing when even the HIndi slang words find their way to the Oxford Dictionary.

The panel responsible for deciding which Hindi slang words make it to the oxford dictionary have been quoted saying that every member in the panel was unanimous to the thought that the Hindi vocabulary is a highly specific vocabulary with no direct equivalent of their words in English and this is why they need to be incorporated in the OED as and when the need arises. 

To sum it up this simply reflects the influence, popularity and dominance of Hindi as a language, even when it comes to accepting the language’s most casual and informal words- namely Hindi slangs!

(The meanings of all the Indian words in the English dictionary mentioned are exactly as explained in the OED).
