    I´m having a problem how to translate this word into English. What is meant by the word chuuRiyaaN of which the translation is required, is the spiral-like carving around a screw... I can't remember how it is called in English so it's going to be a short thread!

    Thank you.

    Thread : is a helical structure used to convert between rotational and linear movement or force. A screw thread is a ridge wrapped around a cylinder or cone in the form of a helix, with the former being called a straight thread and the latter called a tapered thread.

    Well, as soon as I read the title of your post, I thought of "bangles"...So, you should have kept it singular!:) One can say "chuuRii kii misaal" as an adjective to imply "nihaayat naazuk". As a plural, one can also take the meaning "bhaNganeN"! And if your nose is blocked and you are saying "chuuRiyaa", it would mean a type of striped cloth!

    After having read the whole of your post, I thought of "chuuRii-daar paa-jaamah"! So, this need not be a short thread (no pun intended)!

    ^I agree and by saying ''a short thread'' my intention has been just the opposite! BTW, you meant to type 'nihaayat' I believe. So, let's continue!
