The Origin of Inglish Signs
The English which is spoken in India is different from that spoken in other regions of the world, and it is regarded as the unique variety which is called Indian English or Inglish.
Indians also shorten many words to create commonly used terms.
Enthusiasm is called enthu; as such, it can be used in new ways. One can say, 'That guy has a lot of enthu.' While this is simply an abbreviation, enthu can also be used as an adjective where enthusiasm cannot, as in 'He's a real enthu guy.'
The same applies for fundamentals, which is shortened as fundas. 'She knows her fundas.' What is interesting about fundas is that when the -as ending is dropped and -u is added, it takes on a new meaning and can be used in a new way. Fundu basically means wonderful or brilliant. One can say 'He is a fundu person' or even 'He is fundu.'
