Time وخت Posted by on Jun 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

Time time Pashtoons do not place as much emphasis on time as compared to other parts of the world, particularly the Western world where every task is performed in a timely fashion. Still, there exist certain significant activities that have to be performed at a scheduled time, such as offering prayers five times a day and going to the field to take part in the agricultural activities. Some model sentences pertaining to time have been depicted in the following table.

English Pashto
Time is money وخت قيمتی دے
Time once lost is never regained. تير وخت بيرته نۀ راځی
Always catch the time by forelocks. همېشه د وخت صحيح استعمال كوه

Never miss a chance چرې موقع د لاسه مه وركوه

He does his work at the eleventh hour هغه كار په وخت راتللو كوی

Always get up early. همېشه زر پاسه
Early to bed and early to rise: Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise زر اودۀ كيدل او وختی پاسيدل سړے تندرست، مالدار او هوښيار جوړوی.
The sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening. نمر سحر راخيژی او ماښام پريوځی.
