Guzaarish and Darkhaast: synonyms.
Meaning: request.
*But darkhaast is also used for application (for leave etc). Guzaarish is not.

Bandobast and Intazaam: synonyms.
Meaning: arrangement, procurement.
(Identical.)

Aarzoo and Tamanna: synonyms.
Meaning: wish, desire
(Identical.)

as some of the scholars are probably sleeping at this time or logged out to watch a film:
it means a person (or act) of low moral/ethical value. kam meaning less and zarf meaning ???(somthing) I cannot use it in a sentence as many words are above me other than "yeh kamzarf admin hai - or- is nay kam zarf kaam kia". My vocabulary and language skills are very bad

Thanks. I have only come across this word in urdu poetry and assumed that it means some thing like what you described, a man who lacks substance.

Just keen to know if it is a word in common use.

A man who lacks substance, a shallow man, etc is spot on.

To break it down a bit though:

Kam is a common prefix that means 'less'. It provides a negative (adjective) of what it attaches itself to. Examples: kam-zor (less-power, or weak), kam-bakht (less luck, or unlucky), etc.

Zarf means a vessel (bartan). Kam-zarf thus means something of less capacity. 'Wo chhalak jaata hai jo paimaana hota hai' type nuance.

By the way, you can read Urdu script, moum?

No. Never got a chance.

The following one please......

"Blackmail" - translate that into Urdu.

And please don´t translate as "Kaali daak" or something. It should be within the context. However, I am not sure whether there is any fitting translation for that.

I am quite certain about the fact that there is no translation for it and the English word itself is used in other languages as well. It is used in German at least.

Very significant because it is only the aulad-e-nareena that can contribute to the moustache cause in any meaningful way. This fact makes it assume great importance (no disrespect to aulad-e-non-nareena).

Mentioned on another thread-

Jumma jumma char din huey

Jumma to jumma is surely seven days, if the saying only accounts for four what happened to the remaining three days.

The version that is used in Pakistan is "jumma jumma aath din". And it is eight if you count both jummas.

I think it might have something to do with the fact that the subcontinent folks, notwithstanding their general good nature and their undisputed status as emotional giants, have historically been intellectual midgets (for the most part).

That is just one. I had some other things in mind as well. Consider this, for instance:

The subcontinent folks have not only NEVER invented anything (worth inventing) in the whole of known history, they have done an amazing job of making an absolute mess of most of other folks' inventions as well.

It must be put on record though that I wrote the intellectual midget thing in an as-nice-as-possible way. I am rather fond of the subcontinet folks. Heck, I am one of the subcontinent folks.

P.S. But they sure can cook.
P.P.S. And it doesn't really matter if they can do anything else or not. For all practical purposes at any rate.
