Satyen uses the word 'wakar' a billion times, and Sonal types have no idea what it means. In fact, most of the world's population has no idea what it means. Here is a bit about that word,

wakar(pronouned wakaar): (noun, verb, at times adjective) puke, to puke, that disgusting liquid that emanates from a person's mouth when they throw up, act of throwing up
(language of origin- marathi, original root being "okari" meaning the same)
(coined by an IIT-ian who currently resides in ISICAL and is headed to Princeton)

*not to be confused with waqar (pronounciation same), pakistani cricket captain.

noun- The green vegetable was responsible for the wakar in the bathroom

verb- After he downed 4 pegs of rum, a bottle of beer and 2 tequilla shots, he wakarred all over the balcony

adjective- Raja Hindustani was a very wakar movie
