In ancient mythology Paandu was the earthly Father of the five Pandavas, the mighty warriors of the epic Mahabharata.

Over the centuries the concept of Paandu has morphed into many different avatars, varying from region to region.

In Sanskrit the word pāṇḍu means “yellowish white”: yellow is the colour of clarity, energy and optimism; white is the colour of safety and purity.

In Tamil, pandu means someone of age, signifying learning, wisdom, knowledge; it also means fruit.

In Bahasa Indonesia pandu means guide.

In Mumbai slang, pandu affectionately refers to a hawaldar, your friendly local, bumbling cop.
