I simply love Nagpuri slang words. Before I list out some of my favorite words, let me put my 2 cents on this topic. I think many of the words that Nagpurians speak have their origin from the fact that Nagpur was the capital of Madhya Bharat some time ago. That’s the reason why Hindi is still a widely spoken language in Nagpur. Many of the Marathi people, especially those from western Maharashtra and Marathwada find difficult to digest the fact when two “Maharashtrian” Nagpurians often converse in Hindi, instead of Marathi. I think they forget the fact the native language is largely impacted by the history and the geography of the region (Nagpur is geographically very close to Madhya Pradesh). I believe that rather than cribbing about each and everything, we should try to enjoy the uniqueness of the things. Anyways, speaking Marathi with a tinge of Hindi in it or vice versa, Nagpurians simple love doing this. Let me give you some examples.
Western Maharashtra Version: Kaay kartoys?
Hindi Version: Kya kar raha?
Nagpuri Version: Kaay karun rahila?
If you notice, “karun rahila” is taken from Hindi “kar raha”.
Sometimes these words sound very funny.
gheun ghya (le lijiye), deun dya (de dijiye), chalalo gelo (chale gaye).
