Dear Foreros,

I was wondering in as few words as possible how can you state the following:

A) "Go back to your tractors, farmer"- a condescending comment to make to someone on the rise and deemed to be an upstart. Also a quote from the Lamborghini drama documentary.

My attempts, if any are correct do let me know.

1. Apne TrakTaroN ko/par/pe lauTo kisaan/kaasht-kaar/mazaare'.
2. Waapas TraktaroN ko jaa'o, kisaan/kaasht-kaar/muzaare'.
3. TrakTaroN ko zor do .....
4. Waapas apne TrakTaroN ko jaa'o ....
5. Apne TraktaroN ko/par/pe dafa'o/ ho....
7. Wapas TraktaroN ko chalo/chaRho.....

Any other suggestions will also be appreciated. Feel free to correct where deemed necessary.

B) "Go back to your wife/mother"- a comment that could be made in multiple situations.

With this one I'm struggling to keep it succinct so I'll allow you to take a lead.

For instance, other snide remarks like go back to your country or home are rather easy to translate pithily, the former would be Apne watan/mulk ( ko waapas) jaa'o/dafa' ho. The latter "ghar jaa'o/lauTo/dafa' ho. However, with a) and especially b) I could predominately concoct wordy sentences which I would like to avoid. So sticking to a 5-6 word limit per sentence I would much appreciate your suggestions.

    My take for (b) would be "(bas) apnii biibiii/mammii ke paas waapas jaa'o"

    I wonder for (a) if a less literal translation would be better? Something like "(abbe) raajnitii/politics pe kam aur apne tractors pe zyaada dhyaan dena hai"

    One does not have to use the same verb in another language. Different languages turn differently. Thus, in Hindi, (a) would be best served by "apne TraikTaroN ko sambhaal/dekh." As for (b), without context, it's hard to say, but "apnii bivii/maaN ke paas jaa" would fit some of the situations (there is no need to translate "back" in Hindi for such a sentence).
