    LOL! well thats why i said

    trustee would more specifically be a person whom you entrust with something :p
    as per the definition that you provided, it is used more often as a noun than a verb (4:1) :d

    and secondly as the word trustee ends up with "ee" as a suffix, just like employee, lessee etc. etc. so automatically your mind takes it as a someone (i.e. a noun) rather than an activity ( verb)
    What have you been grateful for today..?

    @ TE
    ..now see what i wrote first..

    not sure if they have precisely the same meanings as we do but i think trustee can be used somewhat...
    :p.. it meant that the word should use with some tactful combination not just like that where it can be misconstrued..

    .. :d

    noor would be light

    jaman would either be black current or black berry, i guess

    and jinn would be Jinn in english too, although you may call them spirits or ghosts etc.

    having said that, now who would tell me what a "Kinoo" (fruit i.e.) is called in english? i know it but just want to test you guys' knowledge :d

    There is no exact English word that directly translates into amaanat. As Nauman has mentioned, Trustee is the one holding the amaanat; it does not mean amaanat itself.

    Jaman is a local fruit. I don't think there is an English word for it either. Black berries and black currents are different fruits altogether.

    Shahtoot=Mulberry

    There is a nursery here that sells Pakistani mulberry trees. The local ones are those little red berries; you have to eat a pound before you feel satisfied.

    [quotePakistani mango idher naheen milta[/quote]

    I wonder why that is?

    We get mangoes from Mexico, Peru and other South American countries. I know Pakistani mangoes are exported to Middle East in large quantities, why not the US?

    Good question. Americans are missing out on a great tasting fruit.
