Thanks for refreshing this!
Yeh topic bahut achchaa hai |
A decade or more ago I was taught to speak, read and write Hindi, and some Punjabi by Indian friends with whom I worked in a car factory in Luton, UK. I'm a white English fella, but I have always found Indian languages fascinating. In fact, my username is the Hindi word for "idiot" or "fool". LOL.
The posts by Shalini have been of particular interest.
Mujhe afsos hai, but I'm afraid I don't speak Marathi, nor read it - although I do read Devenagri script for Hindi - and I am told that Marathi uses that same script.
I have a friend from Mumbai who does speak Marathi, and I will show him that song when I next see him. Unfortunately, our paths cross too seldom these days...
I hope there will be more to come in this thread. :-)
