    Sandhya.sha

    Its an ill wind that blows nobody any good.


    What I understood is :

    Its a bad wind which does nothing good to anybody.

    But already someone explained me in this forum:

    it means (someone profits by ill wind). here (ill wind does good thing)


    So, I am confused.

    Could anyone explain it?

    It means that unexpected misfortune for one person (or group) usually means good fortune for another.
