"Saw ka tyngab" is a Khasi phrase which refers to the earliest time of the morning. The word "phyrngab" means the time before the arrival of dawn or the sun's rays. We may say that "saw ka tyngab" is when the night sky is just beginning to see a sliver of light, when the blue of night is coloured by the red of the sun's rays.
Another explanation of "saw ka tyngab" is that the phrase refers to doing something early or while there is time and not procrastinating.
The Khasi phrase "Saw ka tyngab" is one which we hear often but have not really read an explanation of. "Saw" means the colour red (or four) and "tyngab" means crow. Perhaps these also have a meaning but we have yet to know what they might signify. 🌄🌄 Khublei Shibun ïa baroh ki nongbud jong ka page kiba la phah ïa ki jubab bad ki jingmut jong ki shaphang kane ka jingong! 🙏🙏 🟡 Khasi and English explication by @speakyourroots
