      The following came to my mind right this moment and I'm not too sure what it means. Could I please get some help?

      "budhi ghori laal lagam"

      while at it... what's "aik anar, 100 beemar", "naach na janay aangan terha"?

      I sort of have an idea about the last two, but clarification would most certainly help.

      "budhu ghori laal lagam"
      I think it's budhi or borhi (old), and not budhu (foolish).
      It can be used to describe an aged woman who behaves like a young girl, i.e. by wearing too much make-up, or with regard to her behavior/actions.
      "aik anar, 100 beemar"
      When there's only one(desirable) thing; but everyone wants it. So it can't be divided among all the people.
      "naach na janay aangan terha"?
      A bad workman fights with his tools.

      I just saw that LI has already given a reply. Anyways ......

      'budhu' was a typo. Fixed it, thanks.

      while other two are described, let me take the honour for "aik anar, 100 beemar"

      means: having only one Ibuprofen for 100 people

      The ghori can be ghora and budhi can be budha. The same mahawara will work if Faisal Bhai starts dressing up like Shikra. Lets not make Urdu a sexist language than it already is.

      Sorry to break the bubble, but Mr. Ahmad jee there is no such mohawara as

      "Borha ghora laal lagam"

      Keyonkey ghora our mard kabhi borha na hota

      Please stop spreading false information

      Ajatey hain munh utha ke, urdu ki taang torney

      And whats wrong in Faisal bhai dressing up as Shikra ?

      Now if Faisal bhai dresses up lik Phatima1, then we can say

      ek Miyaan main do talwarain nahi reh sakteen

      Some one is smart and impressive, but he can impress people untill someone else out-do him/her.

      Codey, thanks.

      Jal_Pari: start deciphering the two. I've heard of'em, but explanation would help.

      lol Sadiyah

      Ok Thaali ka baingan - > a person who never takes sides. A person who favours the side which will profit him the most. When you put a baingan on a Thaali, its always rolling around and never stops
