Muhavare is the Hindi word for proverbs. There are a number of interesting proverbs in Hindi that aptly describe situations such as “Apne Muh Miya Mithu Banna” which means praising oneself, “Apne Pair Par Kulhadi maarna” which means inviting trouble on oneself etc. These proverbs or Muhavare are used often while speaking in Hindi. Proverbs have their own uses-not only do they describe a situation perfectly but they do so in a lighter tone. There are many other proverbs that are used in our day to day conversation. I am sure many of our friends here can share more interesting and fun proverbs. Can someone please share a few more fun proverbs or muhavare?

Oh! yes, proverbs are a great way to send across one`s message smartly, and as you said - on a light note. A phrase instead of a lecture/speech ;)

Jitni chadar ho utney he paer fhalane chahiyein - Spend according to your budget / resources

Ghar main chaar bartan honge toh takrainge hi - Arguments and little fights are quite common in large families / groups

Marta kya na karta - When in a problem, one may do anything to get out of it

Musibat aane pe toh gadhe ko bhi baap banana padta hai - When in need, one may go asking help from anyone - even those he otherwise would never talk to or gel with

A proverb is a short sentence that is used to express a general truth. Proverbs are called Kahawats in Hindi. There are some really interesting and beautiful proverbs in Hindi. Here are some samples.

Bandar Kya Jaane Adrak Ka Swad - Said about someone who doesnt appreciate the value of something

Door Ke Dhol Suhane Lagte Hain Similar to the English saying Grass Looks Greener on The Other Side

Ghar Ki Murgi Dal Barabar- Self possessions are always undermined

Jal Mein Rehkar Magar Se Bair Thik Nahin Upsetting powerful people isnt a very good idea

Garajne Wale Baraste Nahin Those who give threats seldom attack.
