Paschatap means Penitence after forbidden act (pascha+tap). The english equivalent would be RePentance.

Re: English equivalent of Hindi/vernacular proverbs/idioms

Difference between 'mohabbat' and 'pyaar'?

From the Talat Mehmood song in Parchaiin (1952):
Mohabbat hi ne jo samjhe, woh zalim pyaar kya jaane
Nikalti dil ke taaron se, jo hai jhankar kya jaane

Is there just a noun/verb kind of difference, or is the shayar hinting at something deeper?

Perhaps you mean 'infraction' which is on the right of 'reputation' (and to the right of 'infraction' is 'report'). And, if what I said is true, perhaps you just need to zoom-in before clicking.

Infraction is only for the mods, admin. On my iphone whenever I try to rep without zooming the safari app crashes.
