My first Bengali Slang word

For those of you unaware, I am a bengali. And proud to be one. Mostly coz of the food. And I guess, a little because of the culture. Anyway, a few days back, I learnt my first Bengali slang word.
Here's how it happened

I wanted to eat maggi and I kept telling my mom, "Give me maaagi"
That in bengali apparently stands for a slut or something like that. My mom told me to not say it but she wouldn't tell me what it meant.
So i kept saying it. Finally she told me to shut me up.
Anyway, I am so proud of myself for finally having learnt one Bengali slang word. 
Off to squeeze some other slang words out of my parents.
