13 Indian English Adjectives We Know Too Well But The Rest Of The World Doesn't

1. Convent-educated

A convent is a place where nuns used to live and spread Christianity from. Convent-educated basically means an English-medium Christian school. Don't be surprised if marriage seekers have this on their matrimonial profiles. It's a hidden message to say that they consider themselves highly educated.

2. Wheatish complexion

Not sure what exactly they mean...but men in India prefer women with a lighter complexion more than with a darker skin tone. Yeah, we're closet racists. 'Wheatish' is an adjective used by people who want to say, "Hey I'm not perfect, but nor am I horrendous, I'm just milk chocolate and caramel all over!"

3. Foreign-returned

"Foreign" is an adjective that is sadly used as a prefix noun in this grammar-Nazi-infuriating nation. Examples are foreign born, foreign educated, foreign fashion etc.

4. Homely

Once again, a recurring adjective on matrimonial profiles used for women who are simple, humble and open to running a household for a dominant male (chauvinist pigs be like yeah!). But what does it really mean? You'll be surprised with what dictionary.com has to say.

5. Single and innocent

Another adjective for the ladies and this one is a no-brainer. Apparently being a virgin gets you bonus points in finding a husband.

6. Himalayan Blunder

The only blunder the Himalayas could make would be to not exist at all. So comparing big mistakes to the might of the Himalayas is just stupid.
