1. A common word for "Father" in South Asia especially India and Pakistan; a word of respect used to address elders, saints, etc.
2. Indian slang for "baby". Taken from the English word, but then applied in other expressions: 'baba log' for baby people and 'missy baba' for little miss. During British rule in India, the male children of the British were often referred to by Indian servants as Baba Sa'ab and female children as Missy Sa'ab.
