swalpa adjust maadi
 n.— «Coming back to the phrase “swalpa adjust maadi”—it literally means “please adjust a little,” and is used as a metaphor in daily life. A lady commuter standing in a bus may use the phrase to acquire a little place on an already occupied seat. A father may use the phrase to a college principal imploring him to admit his ward into the college’s portals.» —“Cultures and Communities—I” by Mamta Zine 5 Apr. 16, 2002.
