"Blighty," a commonly used slang term referring to "England," comes from the Persian word velayat, which means “province.” In India, Europeans in general and the English especially were referred to by locals as “vilayati,” which was eventually corrupted by English speakers into “Blighty” to refer to their distant homeland. Surely only a Geordie could’ve mangled “vilayati" into "Blighty," right?

your education? a business.

your government? a business 

your health? a business

your church/masjid/temple? a business
