EtymologyEdit

From Hindi लोटा (loṭā).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

lota (plural lotas)

  1. (South Asia) A spherical pot, specifically a water pot used for washing and ablution, typically made of brass.
    • 1997, Kiran Nagarkar, Cuckold, HarperCollins 2013, p. 9:
      She had been standing behind the curtain of coloured glass beads for at least half an hour now, waiting patiently with a silver lota of water.
  2. (colloquial, Pakistan) A person that switches loyalties, especially from one political party to another. This comes from the fact that the "lota" has a tendency to fall over and roll around, as it is not stable sitting on its base.
