“Devesh, nimbu pani layau!” Dadima calls over her shoulder into the kitchen. Devesh appears with a chilled glass of freshly-squeezed lime and sugarcane juice, and places it on the table in front of her mom.

What does "nimbu pani layau"mean here? I think it's Indian.

@PennyChan,
Sounds like Hindi. Pani is water. Lay au means bring. Not sure about nimbu. Devesh is the name of the servant or friend.

Bring lemonade - that's what she is saying. She seems to be ordering a servant. Devesh, in this case.

@spidergal,
I forgot the lemon. 'If you don't use it you lose it' as the saying goes.
