Re: English equivalent of Hindi/vernacular proverbs/idioms

I needed the translation of "नौ सौ चूहे खाके बिल्ली हज को चली" .. googled and found this thread but no phrase that comes close in English.

Talking Re: English equivalent of Hindi/vernacular proverbs/idioms

Okay, here is one from Mumbaiyya colloquial language

Gaand Me Nahi Gu, Hagne Chaley Juhu

Absolutely word by word translation - No shit in ass, but gone to shit on Juhu beach.

This one is in Marathi.

"Vasrat langdi guy shahani"
Meaning - In a flock of calves, even a lame cow APPEARS wise.
