Why 'pandies'

The word 'pandies' refers to the word used by British commanders who could not pronounce Pandey, a reference to Mangal Pandey. Pandie is an expletive pronounced with an ejection of spit at the end. Pandie, a term even more hated, more despised than the English traitor. As Sanjay sir likes to put it

We are Pandies of modern India, in a constant subversive relation with all that our mainstream culture and its values represent
