Default Pashto Guessing Game - 08-18-2012, 02:00 PM

So most of you seem like experts,

tell me what does:

1)Laparnki
2)Ginjorni
3)Khushai



Both are Pashto words, I know what they mean, it's your job to tell me what they mean. Whoever answers it correctly will have the honor to proceed with the game with his words.


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

Is the 3rd one 'khwushai' meaning to release/free/let go?

I have not heard of the first two words. The third one is "khwashay" means awara, useless and such meanings. Also it means to free someone.
