To be used after witnessing or hearing anything wack, bizarre or questionable.
Ei., a crack head comes up to you and your friend while he's scratching his ass and says, "hey, want to buy this barbie doll?" Upon the examination of his crack status and the irony that even his Barbie looks like she does heroine, you and friend both say, "shanty" to eachother as you continue on your way(elongating the y, thus sounding like , shanteeeeeeee). A sandwich with browning lettuce is "shanty", dumb brauds are "shanty", and old Korean ladies who wear paper towels on their heads while they brush their teeth in public restrooms are shanty.

Are the kind of people who commonly dress in purple, decorate their rooms with mandalas, or pictures of Hindu deities, and go about putting quartzes and little bowls with salt in the corners of their house.

A girl that can make just about anyone laugh. Her smile always puts you in a happy mood. She has a great sense of humor, and anyone she meets instantly likes her. She's one of the most awesome people you would ever meet. She's really creative, can do practically anything, and will never bore you. Don't mess with her though, because she will kick your butt if you do. On the contrary, she is the sweetest, kindest, most nicest girl, and loves making others happy.
Person: Who's that?
Other person: Oh, that's Shanti. Go say hi! I think you'll like her.

Girl: Here, homeless man. Have this extra dollar.
Homeless man: Oh, thank you! You're such a Shanti!
