Definition

Much beloved Naarth Indian petname for young girls.

"Good girls" in India are considered to be sweet, nice and unquestioningly obedient, so parents start calling their daughters by this name in the desperate hope that they will turn out like that. It rarely works though.

More often than not, pronounced as 'Sveety'.

Usage

"Sveety didi! Jaldi aao, mummy bula rahi hai"
