first you dish the dirt, then you diss the dirt



I studied in Kendriya Vidyalaya’s all my life.

And obviously they’ve had a deep rooted impact on me.

Because the four words that still get me every time are, “Pata hai kya hua?”

These can be punctuated with a Haw before or after the sentence for extra drama. As in Haw, pata hai kya hua? G came to work wearing V’s shirt!

Of course the Haw that follows must be backed by an interesting fact, like a return gift for the gossip. “ Haw Really? She is such a slut eh? ”

There is the more sophi (old Calcutta slang for sophisticated) version of Pata hai kya hua which is Fuck, you’d never guess.

Also four words. Also explosive.

Guess I’ve grown up.

HAW HAW HAW!

I have heard that "haw" too, usually as a reaction. :-D

and it must mean something for the double whammy my generation received (attending a Convent at times of great Islamization) that one had to respond by
" Khudaya, naheee" and
" Forgive me my Lord, but yes she is such a slut"

Sunshinemom said...

Hey! I too went to KVs all through my school days. I remember the 'haw' and also, I still tend to use 'pata hai kya hua'! Didn't know it has come from my school days!

Nitika said...

Its been Army School and KV for me too :) With a few Convents thrown here and there. But KV was the best time ever :)

Did you know some KV kids lately have started referring to themselves as Kenvins?
I think saying central school isnt cool anymore. But then it wasnt during my time either.


Cheers,
Nitika

Nitika said...

Haha. I think Kenvin is their way of trying to fit in with the Johnians, Cottonians, LaMartians, Sanawar(ians)... you get my drift.
The poor sods :)

And really great to know you too(through your blog). Dont see too many Central School types around. Not in Delhi/Chandigarh atleast.
