    Considering threading i.e. of facial hair is a local practise happily adopted by the west it is an utter shame that most would think of it as one with western roots since the word threading is used by most urdophones. Therefore, I would like to know its urdu, farsi and hindi equivalents. In Arabic i believe the word is Khithe however, I am not sure of its pronunciation.

    Well thread is dhaga so whilst shooting in the dark I'd say dhaga-baazi since kaari would constitute work but than again even that may be correct any ideas for the urdu daans gathered here.
