phuul: flower (masculine)

Posted by ilearnhindi on February 23, 2009

To see the list of all the words with my twist on remembering their gender please visit Is it a HE or a SHE.

7. Phool: flower (masculine)

Tip To Remember: One of the main offerings to God in a Hindu temple is flowers. And for reasons unknown to me; we all most often address God as ‘He’. He is loving and merciful. He is my shepherd and will take care of me.

That’s one way to remember that this offering to God is classified as masculine in Hindi. Thus, ‘phool’ flower is categorized as masculine. Phool is a ‘HE’

Sentence Formation:

(1) ye baRaa phool  hai.                              This is a big flower.

(2) ye meraa manpasand phool hai.           This is my favorite flower.

(3)  kyaa aapne kaalaa phuul dekhaa hai?               Have you seen a black flower?

Hindi Lesson 6 (Everything is…… )

Posted by ilearnhindi on December 15, 2008

Hindi Lesson 6 (Everything is……….. Everybody (everyone) is………..)

Everything: sabkuchh (सबकुछ)

Everything takes ‘is’, ‘hai’  just like in English.  

therefore,

1. Everything is good.                    sabkuchh achchhaa hai.                 सबकुछ अच्छा है |

2. Eveything is fine.                        sabkuchh THiik hai.                      सबकुछ ठीक है |

3. How is everything?                   sabkuchh kaisaa hai.                       सबकुछ कैसा है |
 

Let us talk about ‘Everybody’ now.

Usage in English is : Everybody is happy. 

Hindi considers it a plural word since we are talking about  more than one person). Therefore the plural ending “hai^” is used.

Let’s make some sentences.

1. Everybody is good.                            sablog achchhe hai^.              सबलोग अच्छे हैं|
2. Everybody is fine.                              sablog THiik hai^.                     सबलोग ठीक हैं|
3. How is everyone.                                sablog kaise hai^                      सबलोग कैसे हैं|

Try what you have learnt so far by practicing these quizzes. Let me know your feedback. 
phir mile^ge.
