Definition

Gulti is a slang used to denote a Telugu person. It originated a few years ago as Telugus started swarming in the US on F-1 visas.
It can be used as a noun or an adjective as it may indicate a person or act as a descriptive word too.
Gulti, although referred to as Telugu said in reverse, doesn't actually sound that.
In reference to same, in a US university full of Indians, people not belonging to Andhra Pradesh can be called Non-Gultis.
Over time, "Gulti" was started to be used to denote certain habits and life-styles practiced by Telugu people. However, it should be noted that it is not used as a foul-word.
