Kannada: ನಯಿ ಬೀಟೆ nayi beete.  I think it is  ನಾಯಿ ಬೀಟೆ.  ನಾಯಿ means Dog. In my opinion there is no word like ನಯಿ in Kannada. Please recheck.
English transliteration for ನಾಯಿ and ನಯಿ is the same nayi.

Many thanks … for forwarding the response.
Thanks very much dear … for catching this error.
Indeed there is no word like ನಯ.
ನಾಯ, meaning dog, makes sense.
Thank you very much … will make the correction shortly and the update this post.
