"Gora" is a Hindi adjective that means "fair," as in having light skin. The word has morphed into a noun that means, literally, "fair one," as in a person with white skin--a Caucasian.
The feminine form is "gori."
Look at Sowjanya! Went to Atlanta, married a gora, and is nicely enjoying.
That shop jacks up the prices because it's mostly goras who go there.

Although the word distinctly means "yellowish", it is sometimes used informally to include any light-skinned person, whether light-brown, yellow or even white. In place names that date back to the colonial era - there are a number of graveyards in Pakistan such as the Gora Qabristan (the lighter-skinned graveyard) in Peshawar, the Gora Kabrastan in Karachi, as well as one in Chillianwala, the site of a famous battle involving the British East India Company.
