      I think our urdu proverbs have so much wisdom behind it that we really ought to share in with the rest of the world therefore we should translate as any proverbs as we can.

      so here goes..

      1) observe oil, observe oil's stream

      i.e. tael dekho, tael ki dhar dekho.

      2) The monkey does not realize the taste of ginger

      i.e. bandar kya janay adrak ka mazza

      3) the pawnbrokers son must have seen something to fall.

      i.e. banya ka baita kuch dekh kar hi gira ho ga


      Please continue in this important project.
      The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

      one chicken unkosher between two mullahs

      i.e. doh mullah mein murghi haram.

      one leg of a rooster

      i.e. murghay ki aik taang

      the chicken of home and daal are equal.(sounds like einstein's theory dunn it?)

      i.e. ghar ki murghi daal barabar

      ^ Yep.

      I think this one is used when one is confused about his/her identity. There could be other meanings too.
