Definition

Blighty has nothing to do with the word blight. It is derived from the Hindi word vilavati pronounced bilāti in many Indian dialects and languages, from Persian vilayet and from Arabic wilayah, originally meaning "province."

However, In India the term became synonymous with the British Raj and was used by the British in India when they missed their tea and scones back home.

Was also used by Indians as a prefix to anything that the British imported into India, anything "foreign." For example tomato would be called bilayati baingan, whose literal translation is "foreign aubergine" and soda water, was commonly called bilayati pani ("foreign water").

Usage

Lord MountFatten: Take me back to dear old Blighty, put me on the train for London town
Lord Robert Clive: Yes old chap, after this game of snooker
