Another list of unique concepts. For now simply copied from one of my files are twenty more Hanian terms to increase your vocabulary….

A solitary moment of danger when you life flashes in front of your eyes, that’s thruble.
who you know, influence and political power – konra [kon ; ra]
This term which is generally used to mean caste, it is that only in caste societies. Otherwise it’s a word to mean you have power by who you know.
So it can be used for networking power as well. And to demean influence and political power too. Arabian culture, specifically in Dubai has a similar concept called wasta. Today when everything depends on social networking and who you know, it’s ever important.
