With globalization at its peak, English has quickly become a global language. We have already forgotten our क, ख, ग(s), remembering just the abc(s). Remembering Hindi grammar classes always tends to nostalgia but never to knowledge anymore. So, here is a shoutout to our mother-tongue: where the words are so unique that other languages don’t come close to having an exact translation.
- I personally don’t blame any other languages to not have an exact translation of this word; after all, they’ve never danced in a Baraat, have they?
- Do you think this is why we never had the likes of The Plague epidemic here? Maybe that’s why British had to come here personally to do the job.
- It is a mix of oblivious, ill-informed, silly. So maybe English language does have the word for it – President Trump.
- This is what you do to your mother when your sister steals laddo but doesn’t give you your rightful share.
- Indian kids, according to our parents, don’t “hang out” with our friends. Instead, we do this, which basically means ”having fun when you’re not supposed to.”
- We were feminists before it was cool, giving the wife an equal position in the marriage.
- It’s that ghungroo sound, those running feet adorned with payal. It is the memories of dance performances where the dance provides its own music.
- The rhythm of the word that defines the urgency of the task it needs to be done. It rolls off the tongue, as should the task that’s being rushed.
- Namoona isn’t just a weird person, it’s a person like no other, in a bad way, obviously. The sample of weirdness, if you will.
- Hindi, being a musical language, has a lot of words employed for musical sounds. Some words are musical enough to work as baby names too. True Story.
