We Bet You Didn’t Know What These English Words Are Called In Urdu

Have you ever come across to a moment with your family or friends when somebody comes up with a common and widely used word in English and asks you for what it is called in Urdu?

It is baffling indeed. You cannot even get over the shame of not knowing your National language Urdu properly, let alone searching the word.

Our Urdu language has contested our knowledge in school and colleges with vocabulary that throws your sense out of the pool. Remember the look of your Urdu teacher when he/she realizes you cannot crack your memory down to find that word even when you were taught repeatedly?
