Notes:
1. No end of troubles = unending troubles = ƢŌÕ-©äE ®¾«Õ-®¾u©Õ

Now look at the following expressions from the conversation above:

1. Jam tomorrow
2. Electing them would only be a recipe for disaster
3. It was really a rib tickler

1. Jam tomorrow = A happy time in the future (which never comes) =«Íäa ªîV©Õ ¦Ç’¹Õ¢-šÇ-§ŒÕE ­J¢-ÍŒœ¿¢ (Æ©Ç¢šË ªîV©Õ «Íäa ‚¬Á ©äŸ¿ÕÐ ‡¢œ¿-«Ö-N©ð F@Áx©Ç) (X¶¾L¢-ÍŒE «ÕŸµ¿Õ-ª½-®¾y-¤Äo©Õ)

2. A recipe for disaster = NX¾ÅŒÕh/ ‚X¾-Ÿ¿Â¹× ͌¹ˆšË ®¾Ö“ÅŒ¢/ «Öª½_¢
(Something that may cause a sudden danger/ trouble)
