  1. Copper- tamba.

    Brass- ‘pital’ @sunnyleone: ye dunia pital di, babby doll me sone di = the world is made up of Brass and shez pure gold..

    Bronze- kaasi. Kaansi ka sikka= bronze coin.

    Lead- ranga/raang. related to lead poisening. Some local made bullets used in ‘desi katta’ (gun) are made up of lead(raang) which cause toxicity, and hence highly fatal, nomatter where it enters.

    Zinc- jasta.

    Magnesium- (teez roshni se jalne waala) dhaatu.

    Sulphur- gandhak. used in gunpowder and explosives.

    1. Well, Ranga is often termed as ‘lead’ only. However, there are some scholarly debates that it is a different metal composition from Lead also. I can’t comment further on whether it is exactly lead or not.
