Definition

Servant.
Don't imagine an English butler or anything fancy. The naukar in Indian homes are most likely to be very poor, uneducated, probably underage and treated like furniture at best.
If anything goes missing, it must be the bleddy naukar. While we go about armed with candles and block off traffic at India Gate protesting whatever is 'in', most of us don't give two shits for our naukars.
Best is that some of us want to catch Kony but are ok seeing kids working and basically living shit lives with no promise of things getting better.

Usage

At a kitty party

Namrata Memsahib - My naukar is such an idiot, I told him to get me the bottle of chardonnay and he went got me the merlot!!

Chanchal Memsahib - I know, they are so stupid these domestic helps. I told my driver to pick me up from India Habitat Center and he went to India International Center!
