    Sorry for the morbidity today dosto, I've been reading too many news papers. Anyway, onwards with my query:

    Are these two phrases related? The latter of the two I recognize from poetry, <kartā hu.n jigar ko lakht lakht>, a awesomely gruesome image (and result of the inconsiderate beloved) of someone ripping the liver to shreds and the first one I understand to be scattered bone fragments. Any other usages of these two where overlap might occur?

    Yes they both mean <small bits / pieces>. Same as پارہ پارہ paarah paarah. All used generally.
