Definition

Originally used to refer to people from Sindhi, Marwar or Gujarat and often pawn-brokers (money lenders), the term has gained common currency to refer to any rich, rotund older male by lower-class (sic) people.

Usage

As a beggar would say in Hindi on the assumption that the said Sait is not fluent in Tamil. On the contrary, most Saits do understand muttering and galis in most south Indian languages.

Paisa-do, Sait.
