Dehati” is derived from “Dehat” and it means “RURAL.”
The literal meaning of the word “Dehati” is just “A villager.”
Anybody from North India will not be pleased but extremely offended if you call him a “DEHATI” because this word is invariably used for the persons of lower socio-economic class as “Abuse” not as a simple reference to their rural connection.
Aliya: i mailed my roommate to be, about getting together over the weekend! all she said was ''yea sure cool.'' Such a dehati!
