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.

“Not a drop of rain falls in the sandy desert or on the barren rock, however useless it may seem to be, that is not seen to be of value by God, and that is not designated to accomplish some important purpose there.”
–Albert Barnes, Notes, Job 38:26
