    Ma does not allow it.

    This is about Indians, what does "Ma" mean? Is it an Indian word meaning "mother" or English?

    “You can’t go in there, or the prayer room. Ma does not allow it.” I was disappointed because I had wanted to meet Ma.

    Re: Ma does not allow it.

    It sounds to me like it means Mother but we can't know for sure from this alone.

    Re: Ma does not allow it.

    What jutfrank said sounds probable.

    It's possible too that "Ma" is a name or nickname. Maybe even a title of some kind.

    You don't want to tell us the source, keannu?
    'Ma' is a fairly common term for 'Mother' in most English dialects, I'd say.
