After a friend introduced me to an interview session where Javed Akhtar defined the term आवारा – I have been in love with it. And to feed my craving heart for more of such words, I sat down with pen and paper and wrote everything that I could relate with Awara.
And out of the list, this word, Matwala gave me the most pleasure. This word is so beautiful that it doesn’t even give a damn to what meaning do you use it for, because in itself it is मतवाला.
Lampat is funny. This word is used to decribe anyone who is not following the decorum and laws of society in a playful and non-chalant way. People who are लम्पट don’t harm anyone, infact for most of their times, they are good at heart but they don’t give in their lives to the book of should-be.
Lampat could be related to Thug slang word but not entirely.
Derived from gujrati script, Fatafati literally means an explosion. But with the advent of time and our habit of mixing two things that our totally off by miles, we now use it to refer anything that we find LIT AF.
