13 Hilarious Literal Illustrations Of Pakistan's Favorite Urdu Mahawray

By Marria Khan | 28 Jan, 2018

We all use mahawray to convey sass and sarcasm in the Urdu language. Some of us may use them more than others but that doesn’t mean these mahawray mean anything less or aren’t as “cool” as some other things.

We did literal illustrations for some of your favorite ones (even if the last time you’ve ever used these are from your Urdu classes back in school). Can you guess these without the names at the bottom of the illustrations?
