    What is the context? What makes you think it is not to be understood literally?

    It might be an idiom in Indian English, it doesn't mean anything in other variants. I have no idea what it's supposed to mean.

    Where did you encounter this sentence? Who said it?

    Please don't use texting abbreviations like 'u' on the forum. A single question mark is enough.

    This is not an English idiom as far as I know.
