Not much to report from the Virginian Front..Was a particularly hectic week with horrible assignments (the prof finally said yeah they were too tough!!) But mails are supposed to be entertaining so this is the next topic i am going to write about…

As i said in my earlier mails one of the things i miss most about bbay is missing the local slang!! No jhols, no locha, no lafda and no raada here…!!! But thanks to the Indian community out here…I have managed to pick up a few other slangs…notably the IIT ones!!!! ok here goes..!! Barrons ishtyle

PSI-—pehchanne se inkaar—-kya yaar! main kitne der tak vahan khada tha…dono ne mujhe solid PSI mara..jaise mein hoon hi nahi!!

froos— short for frustrated..typical iit …the non iiitians generally say..frustu..seems like sab IIT ladke solid life se froos hai!!

Sutta…I didn’t know this before ..(How could i not!!) Cigarette!!

Peace hai...Not like war or something generally means manageable…as in BMI bahut hi peace hai yaar.sab kiya hua hai,, par DSP ke liye solid fight maarna padta hai!

chummachaati..which i think i don’t need to explain!

halu: This one sure had me halu when i heard it fro the first time …it means confused .I guess the etymological derivation is from the English Word Hallucinated

Some pune slangs…used in Hindi..

Gochi...I hear that a million times from Vrushali..We never really used it though did we?! We preferred locha i guess!!

Gandaya hai…No no no its not that dirty as the name means fassana ya mama banana.
