Do you know that the Khasi translation of "Stop Crying" is neither "Wat ïam" nor "Ynnai ïam"? "Wat ïam" or "Ynnai ïam" is translated to "Do not cry". Then what is the correct Khasi translation of "Stop crying"? Do not puzzle over the answer. Have you heard of the word "En"? Yes, "En" is the correct Khasi translation of "Stop Crying" Therefore, when kids cry, mothers would respond: "En noh khun ïoh wan u Khla". "Stop crying child lest the tiger comes".

"En" sent by @manbha.syiemlieh Khublei Shibun for an interesting entry! 😄
