  1. Thank you!!! This is so helpful ^_^

  2. Have you taken food what we will say that in mainpuri

    1. Chak Charabra? (Informal) / Adom Chak Chabirabra (formal)?

  3. How do we say "Have a good day darling"?

    1. There is no manipuri sentence so nuance or exactly similar to "have a good day" but it can translated as " Afaba/Yaifaraba Numit ama oiyu". Hence, people usually wish " Have an awesome/good/fabulous day, Nungshiba ". Nungshiba/Nungshithoiba meaning Darling. Hence, putting them together, it will be like " YAIFARABA NUMIT AMA OIBIYU, NUNGSHIBA"

    1. Ningol Chakkouba is one of the biggest festivals of Manipuri particularly the Meetei community where in brothers invite their married sisters at their natal home for a big lunch. After the lunch, exchange of gifts, sweets and blessings take place. Here is the details : http://www.e-pao.net/epSubPageExtractor.asp?src=leisure.EI.A_Ningols_Chakouba_Wish

  5. I want to know the meanning of this word "nungairebro"

    1. "Nungairebro" means "Are you happy?" basically asking "How are you?". It is an informal use for "What up? " :)

  6. Nice, keep it up!.. By the way, I think there's a small typo there - My name is Thoitonbi :: Eigi ming Thoithoibi kou_ee ; the names are different.

    1. Thank you for pointing out the mistake. looking forward...

  7. How do i say "you are looking good" in manipuri

  8. Manipuri pick up lines please?

    1. Keigi means Why. Kari Enjang Chadoino means What should we have for lunch / Dinner?
