What does ‘No Nazar’ mean, anyway?

Nazar roughly translated means ‘gaze’ or to ‘look’ in hindi/urdu.

Colloquially, it can also mean ‘evil eye’.  Here’s an example of how it might be used in a conversation:

 

Anita: “Wow, Aisha- your new tattoo looks amazing!”

Aisha: “Omg, Anita! You can’t compliment me without saying No Nazar!”

Anita: “You are SO right! No Nazar, Aisha!”

 

And that’s the essence of what we here at NN want for you guys. To gas you, make you believe in your wave, and celebrate your you-ness with no evil eye, no bad vibes, and definitely no nazar.
