Definition

One of those holier-than-thou pesky pottas/pottis who always used to get about 99-100% in every subject, who used to sit and do batti after school till night, who never used to play bat ball or fly kites and whose progenitors always used to send sweets home after every unit test to celebrate their potta's and/or potti's academic achievements. Even after school and in college, these were the types who would still attend classes when there is mass bunk, refuse to share notes, insist on being generally unfriendly to men and insist on wearing sodabutti glasses. Such specimens did not drink, smoke, eat non-veg, watch films, fraternise with the members of the opposite sex and abhorred all the others who did this - they also freely snitched. And got lynched. Eventually, they turned into a Naughty Indian Uncle or naughty indian aunty.

Also colloquially (and rather sarcastically) known as "shareef shankariah"

Usage

Saleem kitta shareef potta hai dekhe, begum. Apni beti ku boyfriend hai bolke, unu kaan kaan ghumri bolke, classan bunk karri bolke merku sab bol diya. Aisich rehna aaj ke naujawan boltun main. (what a good boy that Saleem is. He informed me about our daughter's shenanigans with her boyfriend including bunking classes,etc. True model for youth)

Saleem: Cigarette?
Jahangir: Nakko, please.
Saleem: Please! Offo! Jaan-do shareef shankariah
