Bandgi/ Bandagi Meaning [बन्दगी, बंदगी,بندگی]

Bandagi is an Urdu word, which means prayer, or rather, the act of praying, so 'Bandagi karna' would translate to 'to pray.'

Bandagi, though Urdu, is quite common in Hindi film songs and bandaa, which comes from Bandagi, has become a word of slang in Urdu/ Hindi for a 'person'.

The word originally seems to come from Persian, where Bandagi means Bondage, Slavery. However, since in prayer also one gives in completely to God, who is thought of as an owner too, it translates into Praying as we move to Urdu.
