'Paastai' in Wardag pakhto is used specifically for thin bread baked in a tunoor...like chapati.


More specifically, Paastai is only used by Noori Wardags (the tribe I belong to).
Mirkhel Wardags use Makai.

We use to say

paay for terwee ( yoghurt drink)
and atumm for wheat

and there is another word which i will not disclose due to secrecy among our tribe,but some of the foreigner have learned from it,we use to keep it a secret for another century.

but i can share only this information on this that the meaning of the word is RANDOM.

We use 'paas' as well.

Unless 'paas' is a common word and different to 'pass'

Trew = sour


Even Adobe Photoshop can't change me.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!

-Ferishta, 1560–1620

Snap. Same word here. Trew = sour.

[Actually, I don't like sour things ...]

Does anyone else use the words changhol/changhala for fiancé?

We say that too. A lot of pashtuns of various dialects call it chorrkay as well.
