..and we used to incorrectly refer to it as 'full-scape paper' back in School, repeating what we heard our teachers say…
PS - I was quoting a post on foolscap paper from a few pages ago

Sure, I'll try!

So, whenever someone drives rashly, there's a saying in Malayalam- "Vaayu gulika vangan povukayano". Which means, "Are you going for Air Tablet (capsule)". It's a sarcastic statement, for "Are you running out of breath?".

For better understanding, correlate between "breath" and "air tablet". Let's say, you are at a higher altitude and struggling to breathe, that's when someone passing by tells you that, there's a place not far away, where you can buy capsules filled with air in it (air tablets!) which will help you revive. What will be your reaction? You will leave aside everything and sprint for that capsule, isn't it?! Now imagine someone driving like that on a public road.

As we all know, how rash the majority of bus drivers in Kerala are, its quite natural for others on the road to ask this question, "Are you going for air tablet". So the bus driver answered them beforehand by saying "Yes, I am going for air tablet".

The translation might have overshadowed the fun element, sorry about that.

Trust a mallu to speak a metaphor that only another mallu would understand. I was thinking on the lines of a tablet for gastroenteritis or similar "eno" type situation .

Vayu gulika (tablet to fix 'Vayu') is used to treat gas/bloating. Hence the rush to buy it before a fart becomes a shart! Perfectly applies to the local bus drivers.

Another one:
"Yes the road is my fathers ancestral property!"
