Word Search in Hindi – Family Relations

Posted on 15. Sep, 2012 by in Hindi Language

How about a word puzzle on an important and interesting topic?

I know that many of you really want to learn the vocabulary on this topic so today, I have made a word search puzzle on it. This puzzle will introduce to you to Hindi vocabulary of family relations. All Hindi words in this puzzle are using their romanized Hindi spellings so a Hindi word such as “पिता” is “Pita” in puzzle, so be careful!

Please note that when you greet or having a conversation with elder, it is formal to use “ji” at the end of some of these words. For example:  Pitaji, Maamaji, Bauji and so on. Cousins are not differentiated in the vocabulary and cousin(s) brother/sister is addressed normally as brother/sister.

All of the words are given in the hint section so as to make your search easier. The respective translations in English are also given in the brackets.
