I can count to ten in Hindi--though I need a jog to get started. Choora is
not four.

Mau is not May. Hari is a common male first name.

Jahlee is a female demon or lamia. This is her sardonic joke, just as Krait
takes the name of a Hindu viper.

Chota means small. A chota peg is a small whiskey.

Not sure of these, but Ram is a common male first name, after the god Rama,
and it seems unlikely to me that the word would have negative connotations.
