An Indian word that describe people who are cheap on everything, they make Patels look like ballers, and Jewish people look like Bill Gates. They would try to save a penny, but in the long run end up losing hundreds. Typical vaniyas carry the last name Shah and/or believe in Jainism.
That old Indian man is a vaniya.
