Bai is not a name but a rural way to address a female in a respectful manner in traditional Rajasthani families. People in Rajasthan would rather call their female members bai than calling them by name or other way to address like mother, daughter, sister etc (wife not included. However, Indian women of older generation used to add Bai or Devi to their names like Rukamini bai, Kamla bai, etc.

I wondered why the Frisbee was getting bigger, and then it hit me.
