Definition

Sarcastic exclamation so as to express disbelief at/ incredulousness re/ violent disagreement with what has been said. For greater effect, (a) draw out 'a' at the end of the word such that the word sounds like "aisssaaaaa"; (b) say it with a degree of innocent skepticism (like in "wow! didnt know unicorns existed" or such like); and (c) say offo after or before it. If executed properly, can be a motherlode of sarcasm and can cause the recipient much embarassment. Also, great repellent/ response for pailans, dharkaris/ kaankhans or their chicchas - albeit, use at own risk with these types.
