Noncompoo - Ni - kamma

Noncompoo - Incompetent

Ni-Kamma or Ni-Camma (which gets corrupted as Ni-Comma and then Ni-Compa), means someone who undertakes work in Sanskrit. But in Urdu it means Useless or Incompetent person. Here it is a good example where the word has taken an opposite meaning, a pattern often found and shown here.
