Definition

Used by Bongs, specifically people who migrated from erstwhile East Bengal (known as Bangals) to refer to the native West Bengal population. Slightly derogatory connotation - East Bengal was the center of Bengali culture and literature prior to independence/separation, and the ghotis were considered less cultured, literate and refined.

Usage

Dibyendu: Can you believe that guy? He wears a bloody lungi to the market. Must be a ghoti.
