Definition

An honorific. Hindi word (feminine) for Honorable.
Currently, being overused in U.P. to refer to the present Chief Minister of that State.
With passage of time, and after the defeat of said Chief Minister in the elections next year (hopefully), the perfectly legitimate honorific will degenerate into an insult (the process is already underway).

Usage
