 5 Facts You Didn't Know About the Meaning of Urdu


Facts - Every language has its own unique meaning, but some of those meanings are more interesting than others. If you’re looking to learn about the history of the meaning of Urdu, you’ll find it both informative and fascinating. Before we get started on these five facts, however, let’s make sure we understand what the language actually means!


1) Gurmukhi is a phonetic script

Facts meaning in urdu Gurmukhi is a phonetic script that was used to write urdu (and other languages) when it was outlawed. The script comes from Sanskrit, one of the oldest Indo-Aryan languages and also includes Persian as well as Arabic letters. The characters were developed by poets and intellectuals in Islamic society in northern India. It replaced Brahmi, which had been widely used for writing regional vernaculars across South Asia for centuries. Today it's largely used for writing Punjabi language as well as various other Indic scripts such as Sindhi, Kashmiri and Hindi. The word gurmukh means one who has read or seen the Guru.


2) Urdu is derived from Persian

Urdu is a name for a variant of Persian language that is used in the northern parts of India and Pakistan. It's very different from what we now know as Persian, in that it has many Arabic and Indic words mixed into it, unlike the modern version. Most people were speaking this until Arabic took over about 150 years ago. The reason for its popularity in Northern India was because it replaced Sanskrit, which was used to write Buddhist texts. This also coincided with Mughal rule in Northern India from 1526-1707.

However today most use Hindi, spoken by both languages native speakers, but not by Hindi only speakers. Yet even though they are practically mutually intelligible with no discernible differences between them if you spoke English they would sound completely different. They may have the same script but there are vast differences in vocabulary, pronunciations and sentence structures. For example there are a few ways to say I in Urdu depending on gender, age or social status while Hindi always uses मेरा (mera) I. There are four ways to say I in Hindi: मेरा (mera), मुझे (mujhe), हमारा (hamara), and انا (ana).


3) Hindi, Punjabi, and Urdu all share a common root language

Urdu is an Arabic word that means camp. It's important to understand this because it was created when Muslims immigrated to Pakistan. The idea was that these immigrants would be able to keep their Muslim identity alive by learning a language that spoke about the religion. When people learn Urdu, they are basically studying some Islamic tradition and its importance in Pakistani culture. There are two ways in which you can read texts in Urdu: a. from right-to-left as you do with Arabic or b. from left-to-right as you do with English and Hindi or Punjabi. I hope this helps clear up some confusion about what Urdu actually is! 

1) Urdu developed alongside another language called Persian 

2) In Indian schools, there is no difference between reading from left-to-right and reading from right-to-left 

3) A majority of Muslims don't speak Urdu fluently 

4) Urdū has been accepted as a lingua franca for centuries in Central Asia (even before India became part of British India). Though many dialects exist, the written standard does not vary much across Turkic languages 

5) If one person speaks to another person in Urdū on their mobile phone, both people will hear a translation on their end . For example, if someone asks How are you? in Urdū and the other person replies I'm fine then they'll get a translation back into their own language.

4) The English word 'curry' comes from an Urdu word

1. The word 'curry' is derived from an Urdu word that means a dish of dry-cooked, spiced meat or vegetables. 

2. The English word for 'wicket', a small gate to access a field, originates from another version of this same word, which came to Europe through Arabic. 

3. Arabic words such as 'kebab' and 'shawarma' have become important parts of Western culture as people who enjoy these foods visit regions where these dishes are popular. 

4. Indian and Pakistani cooks created a vegetarian variation on korma using yoghurt and spices with lentils or potatoes. This dish is called gajar halwa. A traditional version of this dish includes cooked carrots cooked in sugar syrup until they form a paste-like texture. Gajar Halwa is usually eaten during festivals like Diwali.


5) 'Shalwar Kameez' means 'wearing long clothes while sitting down'

In many cases, a Shalwar Kameez is also worn with a headscarf or a dupatta. It's true! In Urdu, Shalwar Kameez means wearing long clothes while sitting down. What you didn't know about this dress is that it's traditionally associated with farmers in northern India and Pakistan. Some farmers would be carrying their equipment on their heads for several miles, so they would wear these clothes to protect themselves from the sun and keep cool during hot months. The word 'kameez' has come to refer to any garment made of shirt and trousers or skirt, but originally it was an Indian-Persian word meaning 'a shirt'. A 'salwar' is a loose fitting pair of pants (like what you'd see in yoga pants). However, salwars were originally a type of tight-fitting trousers originating in Central Asia. When worn without kameez, the outfit is called pajamas or shalwar qamiz. The term qamiz can mean any type of shirt, including western shirts with buttons as well as tunics (which are like dresses without skirts). Salwars can also be called churidar because of the way they're folded around the waist. They're often paired with kurtas which are knee length tunics traditionally used by men in South Asia . But now, women all over the world love them too. One of my favorite things about this dress is how easy it is to mix and match different styles into one outfit. And best of all, I can still show off my feet!
