Definition

Death and all that; literally, it's like saying "Death, etc."

"Vagera" means "and all that other stuff" in Hindi. By adding it to death, one is being vague about the other stuff. It may include cremation and mourning, or even disputes over property.

Usage

Mere uncle ka dath vagera ho gaya ("My uncle died, etc.").
