the road. You find one after every 10 meters. The best part is that
all these Chinese Gaadis are red in color, have names like "Red
Sun", "Red Dragon", "Fong's", or anything that sounds vaguely

easily spotted on the road - either in colorful shirts, embroidered

or something equally funny. These guys are the second largest
community in Bombay after the Marathi-speaking people.
23. Madrasi - Madras is a place in the southern part of India.
Madrasi refers to any guy from a place to the South of Maharashtra.
Doesn't matter where he is from. If he is from Bangalore he is a
Madrasi. If he is from Kerala he is still a Madrasi. Doesn't matter.
And the best part of being a Madrasi is that you are supposed to eat
idli sambar for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner. And rasam-chaval is
supposed to be the favourite dish.
24. Pavwalla/Sausage - The Christians. This started because of the
fact that they eat bread(pav) instead of chapatis. Sausage is a

Fataak Rap only I'll give you under your ear man." "Hey ! What she
is looking yaar. See see." / "Bloody I am scared or what ? Go No...
call anyone. Go Man!"

"Rustom" or "Pestonjee" who has to have a fat and an overtly
boisterious wife. Incidently Parsees also are the most affluent and
among the richest in the Indian community. Bombay is also called "ParseeSthan"
since this is the place where you find most of them.
29. Cheena/ Chapata / Nepali / Shaab-babu ( 'sh' as in 'huSH' )- Any
slant-eyed guy is called Cheena or Nepali. Doesn't matter if he is
from Kerala and some genetic disorder messed up his eye. He would
still be a Nepali. The best part is many of the north eastern states
and even West Bengal have people with slant eyes. However, if they
happen to land in Bombay, they would be from Nepal. The Chinese/Japs/Koreans
all fall in the same category. Shaab-babu comes from the fact that
these Nepali gurkhas call every other person they see "Shaab-babu".
I wouldn't be too surprised to find out that they call their parents
30. Sai ( Saa-eeen - the second part is increasingly nasal ) - The
