There's a similar game we play in gatherings with Bengali idioms, 'bagdhara'. I thought it would be fun to try here!
So the rules are, I say an idiom/expression and it's meaning, and the next person says one starting with the last letter of the previous one and so on.
You can say an idiom of any language as long as you translate it and say what it means. Everyone can post as many times as they want . I know mostly Bengali ones so I'll probably give most of those 馃槈
I'll start with;
'Dudher machi'- (flies around milk) :means people/a person who is only around in your good times
So the next one has to start with 'i'
Good luck!
