Definition

In most Karnataka schools, this was how you addressed your female teacher.

Whether she was married or unmarried, 62 or 26, wore saree or sleeveless, didnt matter a whit. If she was the one who addressed your class, wrote Greek on the blackboard, threw chalkpiss on your head for passing chits, taught you that theres no substitute for hard work, looked at you with warmth in her eyes when she saw you trying, gave you surprise tests, & sent your report card home, she was your 'miss'.

We heart you 'miss'.

Usage

Padma: Miss! Meeeess! After 9 attempts I finally got the correct answer!!
Miss: that means you must try harder Padma! Otherwise cent percent you will be SSLC fail! this year also
