The definitive guide to South Asian lingo

Definition 1 of 1


It minns to give one tight slap with inverted hand. Think of a Wimbledon-shtyle strong backhand, and you pretty much have the technique down pat.

Known to be more painful for the slapee than a normal slap, and often leaves a fairly big hand print on the affected cheek for a week or so.

(Some roadside rowdy was trying to to trouble me today, I gave him one tight slap, back hand style)
