Can somebody who speaks Punjabi tell me the colours? I work in my dad's shop sometimes and a lot of Pakistani customers come, but i only speak Urdu/Hindi and Gujarati. Although they speak in Punjabi, i can understand a lot of it, and i just reply back in Urdu.

Anyway, just to help me, i need to know the colours (it's a fabric shop)

So, anyone? I think "frozi" is pink, right? "safayd" is white, and "kaalaa" is black? i think that's all i know.

    I dont know any colors that are different in Punjabi and Hindi/Urdu, but try this dictionary and see for yourself...I dont know the Pakistani dialects that well
    its on ijunoon dot com (I cannot post a URL) and then look for punjabi dictionaries

    oh brilliant! thanks for that. i haven't actually figured them all out.

    i know "laal" is red (or is that strictly urdu/hindi?)

    if you know any more, i'll be happy to hear them.
