Baboo

Baboo (Hindustani - Babu, a title of respect, like Mr.), a term commonly applied to a native of India (especially Bengal) who has received some English education. "Baboo English," produced by the unintentional misuse by such natives of terms and phrases derived from English literature (the more grandiloquent the better), is well known, and specimens may often be found in the native portion of the Anglo-Indian Press.

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”
Isaiah 43:2
