10 Shakespearean Insults That Sound Even Fancier In Hindi!

For years, William Shakespeare has been much celebrated for his plays and sonnets, but not enough for another valuable contribution to English Literature  – the most savage burns ever.

And while they’re absolutely excellent in the Bard of Avon’s original words, they’re somehow even fancier in Hindi (courtesy of Google Translate) and so much more hilarious.
So if I must employ a language to save my life – I might as well learn some of these choicest terms instead.

1. “A most notable coward, an infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality.”

All’s Well That Ends Well (Act 3, Scene 6)

2. “Away, you three-inch fool!”

The Taming of the Shrew (Act 3, Scene 3)

3. “Come, come, you froward and unable worms!”

The Taming Of The Shrew (Act 5, Scene 2)

4. “I am sick when I do look on thee.”

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Act 2, Scene 1)

5. “I’ll beat thee, but I would infect my hands.”

Timon of Athens (Act 4, Scene 3)

6. “More of your conversation would infect my brain.”

The Comedy of Errors (Act 2, Scene 1)

7. “Your brain is as dry as the remainder biscuit after voyage.”

As You Like It (Act 2, Scene 7)

8. “You are as a candle, the better burnt out.”

Henry IV Part 2 (Act 1, Scene 2)

9. “Thou damned and luxurious mountain goat.”

Henry V (Act 4, Scene 4)

10. “Thou art as fat as butter.”

Henry V Part 1 (Act 2, Scene 4)

After spending pretty much all of my teen years waiting for a Hogwarts letter that never came, I gave up and settled for being a wizard with words instead. A hopeless romantic, when I’m not penning down short stories, I’m busy imagining my own happily ever after.
