Haath kangan ko Aarsi kia

kangan and Aarsi are sansikrit words

Kangan is gold bracelet ( mostly ) Aarsi means something delicate, fragile, (glass mirror, drinking glass, bangles etc)

In subcontinent, traditionally girls wear bangles and artificial jewelry before marriage, but after marriage A girl is supposed to wear jewelry made of Gold and other precious metal ( a sign that she is married )

So this mohawara means that once you got gold kangan then immitation jewelry or glass bangles are no more valuable for you.

General meaning : If someone has advanced qualification / skills then he would not be interested in something basic or elementary.

Another phrase often accompanies

Parhey likhey ko farsi kia

Again in subcontinent, in Mughal time, the most important language was Persian (farsi). It was the official language, language of kings and royalties.
And anyone who wanted to atain a higher post in kingdom then it was pre-requisite for him to polish his persian and make it flawless.

But it was not the language of common folks they used to speak local languages. So anyone who was considered parha likha (educated ) it was assumed that he must know farsi very well. Just the same way it is the status of English now in Indo-Pak

URDU IDOMS Reply with quote
HAATH KANGAN KO ARSI KIA
The simple meaning of this idom is:-

IT IS OF NO USE FOR A POOR TO WISH FOR A VALUABLE BANGLE WHEN HE OR SHE CAN NOT EVEN AFFORD TO FEED HIS HUNGER.

JAHIL KO FARSI KIA

MEANING: AS A DIOMAND IS USELESS FOR A HUNGRY HEN AT THE TIME OF HUNGER OR THE BEAUTY OF A FULL MOON IS USELESS FOR A BLIND MAN
SO IS FARSI FOR AN ILLITERATE PERSON.
