Hoovina Jote Naaru Swargakke Hoytu

Literal meaning - "Along with the flowers, the thread also made its way to heaven".

This one is used to indicate that someone free-rode his/her way to a benefit while the actual effort was by someone else. Trivial example - when someone just proof-reads a paper and gets credited as a co-author. Ok - bad example...but helps in appreciating the quotation!
