A Mumbai Mirror report on street vendors of mobile phone porn includes some of their jargon. Read about kaand videos, staged to resemble amateur MMS scandal clips, and code words like daal gosht and pelampaal.
It's hardly a secret that several of the city's cell phone repair shops and SIM card kiosks that flaunt a computer, stock smut in secret folders marked by gibberish names. "We get some women, too," one owner says. "They say, "Zara woh waale movies daal dena."
Which brings you to the rules of the mobile-porn-off-the-street universe.
