The original meaning of the term Desi means literally ‘from the country of’. This is actually an ancient Sanskrit word. This alone does not make sense to us today. However, if you understand it in a broader context, what it means is if you are from India it means you are an Indian.
Let me explain further by giving an example of something you might already understand. In ancient Greece anyone who spoke the Greek language was from the country of Greece and anyone who did not speak the language of the country was called a barba or later Barbarian. Similarly, the culture of the Sub Asian continent identified itself as unique and culturally different then the rest of the world. The term Desi was applied to people of this area. Even if a person lived aboard they would be identified as Desi if this was their country of origin. It was a positive term, nothing negative.
Therefore, the phrase “Desi girls” refers to a girl of South Asian heritage, this could be from the country of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka or Afghanistan.
Today the term Desi girls has transformed into a slang or online term meaning hot girls from India and Pakistan. The Internet often corrupts innocent terms.
