Boni in kannada, tamil (maybe telugu too) means debut (first debut...as somebody put it...). Often used by vegetable and fruit vendors. Also auto rickshaw drivers.
Wonder where the word came from. It certainly doesn't sound like a sanskrit or tamil word (the 2 oldest languages in India). Might have come from a different country....urdu/persian perhaps...

That was MY boni..!!!
