“Nadara parwadai cha wazalai”
“None has killed a bankrupt till now”
By nature Pakhtoons are very caring; always helping in need, promise keeping and ever ready to return blow for blow. These qualities simply flow in their blood.
Coming to proverb’s side, which I always listened during particular issues and incidents from my Grand Mom, is probably a very old and rare Pakhto/Pashto proverb, it defines a Pakhtoon’s attitude towards his debtor.
This particular proverb is used in situation when you give loan or borrow something, and the debtor or creditor has gone bankrupt or isn’t able to give back, “You simply don’t kill him”, for us either we have to wait or forgive the person and leave everything to Allah, that has been the only two ways in this culture.
