I would like to know how frequently "mausa" is used and by whom. My Indian husband and his family use chacha (father's brother) and mama (mother's brother) or they will simply refer to an older man as "uncle". I am just curious to know who uses "mausa".
There are some religious and regional differences with kinship terms. People from Muslim or Parsi families or people of Bengali descent often times will use Chacha or Mama for Father's brother or Mother's brother.
