Literally: the deflected cat scratches the post.

When you know you are in the wrong/have lost and so instead of accepting the blame/defeat you get aggressive and try other means to shift blame from yourself in your frustration.

Also commonly used in the sense of 'Sour Grapes'.

Usage

ranjeet and bittu are playing snakes and ladders and ranjeet wins (duh 'jeet'!)
Bittu: oh it's such a silly game anyway, you only won out of pure chance and because you rolled the die first at the start of the game...
Ranjeet: whatevz dude, i still won fair and square...khisiyani billu khanba noche!!!

looking good, looking sharp. doesn't mean clever/intelligent or necessarily formal or smart in the way the english word is used for clothes. Can just be looking good even if wearing jeans and t-shirt.

nb. smart used in the non-clothes sense can mean 'slippery' or sly!- like in the film Andaz Apna Apna where Bhalla called Amir Khan's character: 'smart boy'

Usage

'you're looking very smart today beta'
'eh he's a smart looking boy'
