Baazee/ Baazi Meaning [बाज़ी,بازی]

Baazi is an Urdu word which means a 'game'.

The word comes from Persian where it means the same. In Hindi/Urdu, the word is often used for gambling or a game of chess, though it's equally good for other games as well.

Also, the word is used in common phrase 'Jaan ki baazi lagaana' [जान की बाज़ी लगाना] which means to put one's life at stake. This usage also comes from gambling, as here one might lose one's life when one puts it at stake.
