I wanna know what this mean in English :
तुम्हारे घुटनों पे जीने से तुम्हारे पैरों पर मरना बेहतर है
(tumhare ghutno pe jeene se tumhare pairon par marna behtar hai)

Pleasee help.!

ANSWER: Carolina

The syntax of this phrase is incorrect. Grammatically, the sentence is
incorrect, though it means :

It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees

Hope this helps :)

Thanks & Regards

QUESTION: How can I say that phrase correctly? all in a line


Here's your phrase :

Apne ghutnon par jeene se behtar hoga ki apne pairon par hi mar jaayein

अपने घुटनों पर जीने से बेहतर होगा कि अपने पैरों पर ही मर जाएँ

अपने = your
घुटनों पर = on your knees
जीने से = to live
बेहतर होगा = better
कि अपने पैरों पर = on your feet
ही मर जाएँ = die (on something)

Hope I was able to assist you to your satisfaction.
