    God, God, God! I can´t stop my laughter! Great write-up, great translations! Your best posts ever! Let me mention here @blinding light @Munna.

    Hey, I have a maternal cousin named Uzma, one sensitive soul to any such comments, as all the siblings are. I can imagine are shedding tears all day over your "acne" and "weight" comment. Her younger brother posts on PP, although I won´t mention his username here.

    1 and 2: "Haq" means right (not the opposite of left) and "raaz" means secret.

    The only correction I'd make is for "ma'aqool." Instead of "considerable," I would go with "sufficient," or "adequate."

    Raaz-e-Haq: Divine secret.
    Haqnumaa: That which guides to the truth. This would be a great title for a Sufi sheikh.

    Words in Urdu - need meaning in English

    Is "baazu" ("arm") feminine or masculine? I mean, is it "Meri baazu andar phans gayi hai" or "Mera baazu andar phans gya hai"?

    @cricket083 Any idea?

    I use baaju as a hermaphrodite.

    To refer to the actual physical object - "Meri baazu sooj gayi hai"

    To refer to something nearby - "Woh tumhare baazu mein khara hai"

    Hmmm.... Can you confirm it with any of your teachers? My guess was similar mind you.

    I think the confusion arises because of the Punjabi word "baa´n" which is feminine in Punjabi.

    Don't have any Urdu teacher.

    Btw I have never heard anyone saying "Meri Bazu. We used to have "Ghalat Fiqraat ki Drusti" in our grammar section till 12th grade and I never came across any such sentence in which it had been corrected which implies that it is correct to say "Mera bazu.

    Words in Urdu - need meaning in English

    Btw I have never heard anyone saying "Meri Bazu. We used to have "Ghalat Fiqraat ki Drusti" in our grammar section till 12th grade and I never came across any such sentence in which it had been corrected which implies that it is correct to say "Mera bazu.
    That pretty much settles it I suppose.

    Not sure about this one. Arz has two meanings. One is 'land' and the other being 'petition or request'. I have a feeling in this context it is being used as 'request' for something. I'm not sure what shaalaa means.

    Why on earth someone would go through the trouble of creating an ID and then disappearing after asking for translations is beyond me.

    Actually, is there a common Punjabi term for it ?
    It's Jamia in Punjabi too. So when they say "Jinne Lahore naee vekhya o jamia e naeen," it means the one who hasn't seen Lahore hasn't been to the University.

    It probably dates back to the time when the only University in Punjab was in Lahore.

    You blur the lines of truth and fiction too much for anyone to really entirely grasp your posts.

    Perhaps, but the way I see it is a good politician will always lie.

    It's panchayat that comes from panch- five. Panchayat is kind of village assembly or council that consists of elderly and influential people (elected by the people of that village) who settles the disputes or solves the problems of the individuals of that village.

    I would like to be corrected by someone if I'm wrong.

    Nah, Fasahat-o-Balaghat sounds about right. Rawani means fluency.
