      Since there are quite a few guppies who hardly know about family relations in Urdu I thought it would be useful to post a kind of relation dictionary English - Urdu. I´m sure I have missed a lot of relations here. There is one which I don´t even know myself as you can see below. So you are free to add more and I will edit this post to have a complete overview. (Mods, I think this deserves to be a sticky thread )

      I guess you are referring to Saala/Saali. That really are the Urdu words for that relation and not gaaliyan. They are used in a negative sense in Bollywood movies though.

      She answered both questions I was gonna answer. For cousins, it depends. Chacha's kids are chacha zaad behan bhai..........maamo's kids are mamoo zaad behan bhai.......taaya's kids are taaya zaad behan bhai and so on.

      You forgot 2 most important rishtey (somebody will know why )

      Father of Son/dauther's wife/husband = Samdhi
      Mother of Son/dauther's wife/husband = Samdhan


      The rishta that you are missing:

      Wife of wife's brother = Saale-haar
      ...I know that which you do not know. (Quran - 1:30)...... Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?...(Quran - 55:13)...

      woo hoo, scored a perfect 100%

      here is another oen you did not include

      your tai's brother's humsulf's baita who is coming to US and you have to pickhim up and he will stay with you until he finds a place.

      the name for this type of rishtay daar is

      "aira ghera nathu khera"
      "maan na maan mein tera mehmaan"

      or my favourite

      "jaan na pehchaan, galay laga kameena insaan"
