Goon Names

25 Jul

Seems to be poster season again.

I increasingly see these pictures pasted along roads of local politicians and their goons.

The police must be having an easy time because now they dont have to go back to the station for pictures. They find them plastered all over the place.

Related post: Ugadi Greetings I don’t need.

Some interesting names crop up whenever I read crime columns which set me reminiscing about names we knew about while growing up. I took the extra liberty to put literal English translations next to the names that needed it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hebbetu Manja – Thumb Manja

Yenne Seena – Oil Seena or Whiskey Seena (depends on your definition of “Yenne”)

Bomb Naga

Seeme-Yenne Ramappa – Kerosine Oil Ramappa

Istri Gaadi Venka – Ironing Vehicle Venka

Macche Baabu – “Spot on Skin” Baabu

Tinker Ismail

Mamsa Angadi Raaja – Butcher Shop Raaja

Mosaru Ranga – Curds/Yogurt Ranga

Theres many more.. but these are what I can think of for now. If anyone has more names, please contribute and I will include them in the main post.

Thinking of interesting nicknames, we had a guy in College who was nicknamed “Sagani” (cow shit).We always wondered whether that name would “Stick” with him in his professional life as well (pun intended).

    Jelly Venkatesh – Ballast Venkatesh (He was killed a couple of months ago)
    GiNi – Parrot (He once came to beat me up for yelling at his guys for jumping the line at the swimming pool)
    Parodi Babu – Gangster Babu

    oh my GOD its looks like a mini crime dairy…
    and about keeping the nick names to your school/college pals, hope you don’t call them by those names in front of their girl friends or office boss.. paapa..

    BTW, what was your nick name ?

  5. Vijay July 25, 2007 at 9:58 am #

    My nick name was “lodde” (me being left handed and all)… Dont know if I had any that I didnt know about…
    This “Sagani” fellow was our senior.. he seemed to be very comfy with that name.. I dont think even he know his real name ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. neela July 25, 2007 at 4:23 pm #

    nattu didn’t graduate to rowdy level??
    all due to your ‘shaapa’ for non delivery of burfi, ansutte. Paapa . ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  7. some body July 25, 2007 at 7:40 pm #

    if only nattu’s first initial matched our esteemed president madam’s, we would have “p nuttu” join vijay’s enchanting list of ‘toon goons.

    the only goon name that comes to my mind – correct my spelling, folks – is theophilus goon.

    – s.b.

  8. December Stud July 25, 2007 at 11:00 pm #

    Don’t underestimate the likes of naTTu…they just need the right break. For all you know, he may be interning under one of the guys in Vijay’s list…..

    SB: If PPP had married a naTTu, we could have called her p-naTTu with all the love and affection. On that note, do we happen to know anything about her real husband at all…as to the degree of nuTness…..

  9. Vijay July 26, 2007 at 3:51 am #

    Or who knows he might be running a profitable “burfi” business .. or maybe “supari” ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I don’t know if anybody remembers “Raabari Naga” a well known “punter” from Siddhapura in late 70’s early 80’s. He had disfigured hand, the story was that somebody poured or dipped his hand in acid. Then there was “Shetty Varada”. Apart from the first team of goons like “Kotwal Ramachandra”, “Oil Kumar”, and “M.P. Jayaraj” the afore mentioned were “second rung”. In fact two of VHS’s alumnii were famous for a couple of years as goons. I am talking about Raghuram and Gangadhar from 72-75 batch. There were a couple of guys in 10th D, who were the only guys to beat up the brothers. Does anybody remember that?

    If I were powerful enough I would cut them(rowdies) all into tiny(1 centimeter) pieces with a sword and put those pieces to dogs.

    They have become “rowdies” because common man fears them.

    When they try to attack you dont back-off but cut anything from their body untill they run away or die.


    they will cut you with swords and you will die like the fisherman who died when 12 men slashed him with swords in bismilla nagar.
