"Gora" is a Hindi adjective that means "fair," as in having light skin. The word has morphed into a noun that means, literally, "fair one," as in a person with white skin--a Caucasian.

The feminine form is "gori."

Usage

Look at Sowjanya! Went to Atlanta, married a gora, and is nicely enjoying.

That shop jacks up the prices because it's mostly goras who go there.
