The word "Siklai" has a number of meanings which include to lie, fool, trick, deceive or exaggerate with the aim of making a joke. The word may be described as an urban slang and according to teachers of Khasi literature and language, it may have been borrowed from Hindi or vice versa.
For example: "Mynta dry day dei? Flop leh."
"Ïoh te me da me dial 1234567 home delivery."
"Me ynnai siklai than."
