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’
