Some Important Hindi to Learn
On my last trip to India, I found a marvellous book for learning Hindi! Yes I thought, finally I can speak the language of the country I love so much.
Saying Namaste to the King of Udaipur, The Maharana
I was proud as punch of my new purchase and couldn’t wiat to test it out on my friends….. Apparently it wasn’t to be quite as useful as first thought.
My friends in Mumbai having a good giggle at my hindi attempts. Namaste!
Here are a few of the phrases from the book:
ba skae agae, bin ba jana
The buffalo is as impressed with your flute playing, your playing a flute in front of a buffalo.
My friend Priyo laughing hysterically at my hindi book
kanghali mae, ata jilah
– a poor mans flower is always wet
The princess of Hilariously Spoken Hindi
Note, If you do want to learn Hindi – make sure to ask your trusted Indian friends. Or do a lesson in Hindi with actual teachers – don’t spend $8 on a book….my bad!
