Klisht Hindi

Heard of words like shishu, twacha, poshan I am sure images of an advertisement should prop up in your mind. Such pure Hindi is to be heard in advertisement let alone Hindi news channels

umm... guys.. you would be shocked to know that these words are just normal hindi. the actual 'klisht' hindi is beyond a normal layman's comprehension. believe me, for i have racks of tomes in the next room.

these words have been in common usage for the last 100 years, actual klisht hindi have earlier origin than that.

Dear SyntaxError,
Get the semantics right :)
I have mentioned that such words are hard to 'hear' in layman speak. Surely everyone, at least in the Hindi speaking belt knows them but I see no one using them in their normal, informal communications.
