"Bangalored" is a verb which recently got added in the dictionary (Thanks To Uday)

Did u know that?


"Bangalored" is a verb which recently got added in the dictionary. A

person is said to be bangalored if he lost his job because the work got

outsourced to bangalore or any other city in India.


"He got bangalored last week" is an example of its usage.


U can also type this word "bangalored" in Google search n see.


Lot of people in US got bangalored that it became an issue during the US

presidential election. That's exactly when this word was coined.


One such similar verb is "shanghaied" which means kidnapped.


I read this recently in the Readers Digest, Aug issue. I found it

interesting n just thought of sharing it with u. Great that bangalore

has a verb in its name only that it has a negative meaning.
