Definition

A Hindi proverb that is 99.99% accurate when it says: 'Kutte ki dum, tedhi ki tedhi'. The English talk about a leopard & it's spots..

All in all, if someone is a proven crook, understand that that's what he is - a proven crook. Even putting his tail in a bottle for 10 years to straighten it out wont help; it'll still come out wagging like crazy, but crooked all the same!

Usage

''A dog's tail is crooked forever''. Like that only you use.
