Definition

Someone who is slightly more evolved than a pailan but has not reached the zenith that a kaankhan has.

Literally, means someone who has performed out-of-the-ordinary (but not extraordinary - that is reserved for kaankhans) feats and is to be respected, as such

Usage

(Saleem: You are not giving me the money. I will tell my father.
Ismail: Let him come. Is he a prominent revenue collector?])
