मद्यपीतः (Three sheets to the wind)

आङ्ग्लभाषायां अनेकानि लघुवाक्यानि (phrases) सन्ति। तेषाम् three sheets to the wind इति अस्ति एकं लघुवाक्यं यस्य अर्थो मया न ज्ञातः । तस्यार्थोऽस्ति येन मद्यं पीतम् (drunk – After the party he was three sheets to the wind.)।

  1. Hello

    Talking of being three sheets to the wind, reminded me of a chapter in Valmiki Ramayana…The Monkeys are returning after locating Sita…They are overjoyed….And they enter Sugrivas pleasure garden and they get three-times-three sheets to the wind…Some verses describing that state, are given below in iTrans format

    patanti kecit vicaranti kecit |
    plavanti kecit pralapanti kecit || 5-61-14

    parasparam kecit upaashrayante |
