Youth slang in Mizo culture

Mizo slang among the youth
A friend of mine who is an Assistant Editor for a renowned National Magazine has asked me to write a short article about the slang that the youth of Mizoram use today (words derived from English or other languages), which might be published in the magazine if the content is interesting enough.

Please do contribute whatever you know, in case I have missed out on any, and this post will be updated with your contribution and due credits given to you of course.

Thanx in advance and your contribution will be extremely appreciated. I have already crossed the deadline date since I didn’t check my mail in a looooong time, so it is highly unlikely that the article will be published now. But still, I think it is good to have such a topic available on the Net anyway. Thanx again.
