is a pejorative term referring mainly to a person of Sri Lankan ethnicity but sometimes generalized to refer to any person of South Indian and Sri Lankan descents. Contemporary usage of the word as an ethnic slur has sparked controversies in the media for many years. Burnt Fish refers to a stereotypical view of Sri Lankans (tamil, sinhalese) and South Indian's as people who carry a foul stench and a pretty dark skin colour. The word originated in some parts of North India and was commonly used in the past, now it is more commonly used in western society.
