Tura nga!

In Khasi, the word for being in a hurry is "kyrkieh".

"In Ri Bhoi District Umroi area, where I am from, if we are in a hurry we say 'Tura nga'.

People misunderstand this and think we are going to Tura."

"Ha Ri Bhoi District Umroi area, da ngi 'kyrkieh' ngi ong 'Tura nga'. Ki briew ki bakla beit, ki mut ba ngi mut leit Tura.

There are so many dialects present among the Khasi people. This is one from Ri Bhoi District. ๐Ÿ˜€ In this instance, people think it means "Tura" in the Garo hills. Thank you @adele__miss_dreamy for sending this!
