"Maid Servants" (a.ka. ayah, domestic, maid or outsider) as they are commonly referred in India are the millions of domestic workers of India who are hired for domestic help. They are typically women, hired to perform daily chores such as cleaning, washing and often caring for children, running errands and caring for the elderly.
