Is there an English equivalent of the Hindi phrase
Iss Desh mein (In this part of the world) ulti ganga bheti hey (Reverse flows the river ganga).
It is often shortened as "ulti ganga bheti"
A river wherever it may be located on earth should follow physical laws but in this part of the world at least the world revolves reversely which To go against the law of nature meaning Things which go against the law of nature or humanity are accepted.
Example would be
Even when good-to-use free calling services and accepted at both ends and all conditions are meeting, a quirky person fully aware of the fact would still go down 1 mile to a shop and make an overseas call to speak to the other party out of his eccentricity.
While the above example given is for a person but the Hindi phrase is used commonly to societal or group behavior of such kind yet loosely used for a person too.
Second and more apt example would be
Instead of talented and productive employees getting the reward, poor and powerful placed empty suits are being offered new positions and rewards during the ceremony.
This would be mockery so adversely affected talented employees would say "here the ganges follows in opposite" as in there rules of nature here are reverse
Gravity is not applicable in this part of the world
