bor hoNA/uktAna


Explanation:
Bore has become quite common in Panjabi and Hindi and there is no harm in transliterating the same.

Your sentence may be translated as follows:

Maein bot bor ho gayA hA(n)

Maein bot uktA gaya hA(n)

If this is to be spoken by a female, gayA should be replaced by gayii.

neutral  chopra_2002: In my humble opinion, Akna or Ak Jana means becoming fed up of something rather than getting bored.
