“Jai ho” lyrics in Devanagari Script

Posted by ilearnhindi on March 16, 2009

जय हो, जय हो
आजा आजा जिंद शामियाने के तले, आजा जरीवाले नीले आसमान के तले
जय हो, जय हो

रत्ती रत्ती सच्ची मैने जान गवाई है, नच नच कोयलों पे रात बिताई है
अखियों की नींद मैने फूंको से उड़ा दी, गिन गिन तारे मैने उंगली जलाई है
आजा आजा जिंद शामियाने के तले, आजा जरीवाले नीले आसमान के तले

चख ले हो चख ले ये रात शहद है चख ले, रख ले हाँ दिल है दिल आखरी हद है रख ले
काला काला काजल तेरा कोई काला जादू है ना, काला काला काजल तेरा कोई काला जादू है ना
आजा आजा जिंद शामियाने के तले, आजा जरीवाले नीले आसमान के तले

जय हो, जय हो!! जय हो, जय हो!!

कब से हाँ कब से जो लब पे रुकी है कह दे, कह दे हाँ कह दे अब आँख झुकी है.. कह दे
ऐसी ऐसी रोशन आँखे रोशन दोनो भी है है क्या…
आजा आजा जिंद शामियाने के तले, आजा जरीवाले नीले आसमान के तले

जय हो, जय हो!! जय हो, जय हो!!

gussaa: anger (masculine)

Posted by ilearnhindi on February 7, 2009

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

5.  Anger: gussaa:   masculine

Tip To Remember: It is a well-known fact that women tend to be more patient than men, therefore their tendency to jump up and down in anger is less compared to that of men.  So, ‘gussa’ is categorized as masculine. gussaa is a “HE”
 

Sentence Formation:

(1)    Sheela ko gussaa aayaa                      (Sheela got angry.)

(2)   mujhe gussaa aa rahaa hai.         ( I am getting angry.)

(3)    Mary ko bahut gussaa aataa hai.               (Mary gets angry a lot)

 baakii phir. (more later)

Learn Hindi Online

Posted by ilearnhindi on January 24, 2009

Why should I join online Hindi classes?

1. If you always wanted to learn but never found a teacher or time to commit yourself, now is a great time to start.
2. If you do not like driving. This course is taken online. No need to find parking, commuting or even change your pajamas.
3. You tried learning on your own but have a lot of questions and get lost occasionally.
4. You are great at reading vowels but get all confused when it comes to dependent vowels.
5. You are simply eager to learn.

Requirement: You are at the right place. Interactive online Hindi classes for adults are currently in session.  We start new groups when we have a minimum of 2 students at almost the same level.  If you have another friend who might be interested in learning Hindi, I would be happy to set up a 30 minute free trial class for both of you.  You would need a skype id to be a part of the session and we will use an online classroom by acrobat.com.  The class set-up is extremely simple. Send us your skype id and I will send you the link for the online classroom.

Trial Classes are held every 1st and 3rd Monday at 8.30 pm PST.

We teach Reading, Writing, and Conversational Hindi.

Headset Required: For all online classes, we request that each participant to use a headset. This is very important because

  • In-built computer sound systems catch subtle background noise that can cause static.
  • They also tend to loop in the sound from the speakers to the microphone, causing an echo effect.
  • The sound quality sent to other participating students is not optimal

Any simple headset would work. Here are some suggestions as well-

Hindi Lesson 7 ( How is………?)

Posted by ilearnhindi on December 19, 2008

Today we introduce the word “HOW”. 

Hindi Lesson 7 ( How is he, how is she, how is everyone……)

How: kaisaa ( कैसा)

therefore

1. How are you?           changes to  You how are?    following the SOV language rule.

subject + Other (object, modifier etc) + Verb

with formal you (आप, aap) aap kaise hai^? आप कैसे हैं?

with familiar you (तुम, tum) tum kaise ho? तुम कैसे हो?

2 How is he?  

vo kaisa hai?  वह कैसा है? (remember he = ‘vah’ and  ‘vah’ is pronounced as ‘vo’)

3. How is she?

vo kaisii hai? वह कैसी है? 

4. How is everyone/everybody?

sablog kaise hai^?  सबलोग कैसे हैं?  (remember, everyone takes the plural form verb ending) refer to lesson 6 if not clear.

5. how is everything?

sabkuchh kaisaa hai? सकु्छ कैसा है? (remember, everything takes the singular form of verb ending)

6. On the same lines?

How is Ram? 

Ram kaisaa hai? राम कैसा है?

Practice for you.

1. How is Sheela?

2. How are Arvind and Radha?

3. How is the movie “Dostana”?

Try to do these and leave in the comments section. I will correct the first three entries if they need correction. 

धन्यवाद,  Keep practicing.

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.
