Panga, Phadda, Pinki – Karachi Expressing Slangs Via FM Channels
The city is increasingly influenced by the broadcasts of the growing numbers of FM radio channels. These channels have mainly targeted and immensely affected the youngsters. One can hear such expressions in every locality of the city, whether it is upmarket Defence and Clifton, middle-class Gulshan-e- Iqbal and North Nazimabad or slums of Liaquatabad, Lyari and Orangi. But the radio people insist the use of slang was an effective ploy to engage the youngsters in sort of dialogue and detract them from negative tendencies, which are rampant in the society.
