Haath kangan ko Aarsi kia

kangan and Aarsi are sansikrit words

Kangan is gold bracelet ( mostly ) Aarsi means something delicate, fragile, (glass mirror, drinking glass, bangles etc)

In subcontinent, traditionally girls wear bangles and artificial jewelry before marriage, but after marriage A girl is supposed to wear jewelry made of Gold and other precious metal ( a sign that she is married )

So this mohawara means that once you got gold kangan then immitation jewelry or glass bangles are no more valuable for you.

General meaning : If someone has advanced qualification / skills then he would not be interested in something basic or elementary.

Another phrase often accompanies

Parhey likhey ko farsi kia

Again in subcontinent, in Mughal time, the most important language was Persian (farsi). It was the official language, language of kings and royalties.
And anyone who wanted to atain a higher post in kingdom then it was pre-requisite for him to polish his persian and make it flawless.

But it was not the language of common folks they used to speak local languages. So anyone who was considered parha likha (educated ) it was assumed that he must know farsi very well. Just the same way it is the status of English now in Indo-Pak

Thanks for increasing our urdu knowledge.
Keep on good work.

Regarding that Kangan and Aarsi thing, I am afraid you are all wrong. You people were correct in saying Aarsi means mirror, and Kangan means bangle. But the meaning is that "if you have a bangle on wrist you do not really need to look in the mirror", which actually means if something is so obvious, you do not really have to go to great lengths to prove it. Or something truth or otherwise of which can be easily verified

Now that Farsi bit. This is really simple. Farsi was supposed be a difficult language and was the official language of mughal emperors. It means that "Farsi will not be difficult to understand for someone who is educated". This I think is self explanatory, meaning it will be easy for someone to understand who has the knowledge about that particular field. Hope it clears it once for all.

Farsi Reply with quote
How interesting - I never knew Persian was so important in the history of Indostan. A language of kings and royalties...hmm. And is it practised in India or Pakistan nowadays? I met a girl who was born in Afghanistan. Though she lives in France now after her parents had immigrated long ago, she speaks Farsi. Is Farsi a language of Afghanistan as well?
