Conversation in Hindi – Guest & Host Family Posted by on Jun 27, 2011 in Hindi Language

Lets have a interesting topic on conversation in Hindi. Many of you might have been invited by your Indian friends living in India whose family speaks Hindi. If you know little bit of Hindi or wish to converse in Hindi, you might have always wondered how to proceed with a conversation.

Let me show you, how we usually carry out our conversation when a friend comes as a guest to our family. Conversations are in Hindi and translations are given in English.

Maria is from Chicago and she has been invited to visit her Indian friends, a couple from New Delhi. The couple, Rakesh and Lalita already know Maria for a long time as they used to work together in Chicago for 5 years. Maria can talk Hindi and she usually talk to them with a familiar form of you, “tum” as she knows both of them since a long time.

मारिया: नमस्ते!
Maria: Namaste!
राकेश और ललिता: नमस्ते मारिया!
Rakesh and Lalita: Namaste Maria!
मारिया: तुम लोग कैसे हो?
Maria: How is going with you guys?
राकेश और ललिता: हम सब ठीक हैं और तुम कैसी हो? तुम्हारी यात्रा कैसी रही?
Rakesh and Lalita: Everything is fine here. How are you? How was your journey?
मारिया : मैं भी सही हूँ. मेरी यात्रा लंबी थी मगर अच्छी रही.
Maria: I am also doing fine. The journey was long but it was good.
राकेश: तुम लंबी यात्रा से आई हो, तुम चाहे तो रिफ्रेश हो ले तब तक ललिता गरमा गर्म चाय और कुछ और बना लेगी.
Rakesh: You came doing a long journey so if you like you can get refreshed/take a bath and by then, Lalita would have made tea & snacks.
मारिया: हाँ, यात्रा बहुत लंबी थी… मैं जरुर स्नान करना चाहूंगी.
Maria: Yes, the journey was long…I wish to get refreshed.
राकेश: ललिता जरा मारिया को बाथरूम दिखा देना i
Rakesh: Lalita, would you please show the bathroom to Maria.
ललिता : मारिया, आओ मैं तुम्हे बाथरूम देखा देती हूँ.
Lalita: Maria come, I will show you the bathroom.

Maria get refreshed and come back after a while. Till then, Lalita has already made some traditional snacks along with Tea.

ललिता: मारिया यह लो चाय.
Lalita: Maria, here is your tea.
मारिया: धन्यवाद
Maria: Thank you.
राकेश: और सुनाओ मारिया, घर पर सब लोग कैसे हैं?
Rakesh: So Maria, hows everyone in your family?
मारिया: घर पर सब लोग सही हैं.
Maria: Everyone in family is doing very fine.
मारिया: ललिता, तुमने यह पकोड़े तो बहुत अच्छे/स्वादिष्ट बनाये हैं!
Maria: Lalita, these snacks are very delicious!
ललिता: धन्यवाद. अच्छा लगा की तुम्हे यह पसंद आये.
Lalita: Thank you, I am glad that you liked it.
मारिया: अब मैं यहाँ आ गयी हूँ तो तुम से इस बार यह सिख कर ही जाउंगी.
Maria: Now I am here, I’ll learn how to make these snacks before I leave.
ललिता: हाँ, क्यों नहीं. मैं तुम्हे जाने से पहले यह सिखा दूंगी, तुम बिलकुल चिंता मत करो.
Lalita: Yes, sure. Don’t worry, I will teach you how to make them.

Maria & her host family enjoy a cup of tea and chat a little bit.

राकेश: मारिया, अगर तुम थकी हुई हो तो आराम कर लो. कल हम लोग तुम्हे दिल्ली में कुछ प्रसिद्ध जगह दिखाने चलेंगे और फिर परसों हम लोग ताज महल के लिए जा सकते है.
वो यहाँ से जाएदा दूर है भी नहीं, सिर्फ 300 किलोमीटर है…3-4 घंटे की ही यात्रा है, क्यों ललिता?
Rakesh: Maria, if you are feeling tired you can rest for a while. Tomorrow, we will show you some famous places in Delhi. And, maybe day after tomorrow, we will go to see Taj Mahal. It is not very far from here, just 300 kms…around 3-4 hour of journey, right Lalita?
ललिता: हाँ, बिलकुल.
Lalita: Yes, sure.
मारिया: यह विचार/आईडिया तो बहुत सही है!
Maria: This is a wonderful idea!
मारिया: हाँ, फिर में आज आराम करती हूँ.. मगर श्याम को तुम लोग मुझे दिल्ली का बाज़ार/मार्केट दिखाने जाओगे, सही है ना?
Maria: So, today I will rest for a while…But, you guys have to show me the famous market in Delhi in evening, right?
राकेश और ललिता: हैं, बिलकुल…क्यों नहीं.
Rakesh & Lalita: Yes, sure…Why not.
राकेश: अगर तुम्हे कुछ चाहिए तो, मुझे या ललिता को बोल देना.
Rakesh: If you need anything, please let me know or Lalita.
मारिया: हाँ, बिलकुल. धन्यवाद.
Maria: Yes, sure. Thank you.

Then Maria goes to take some rest while her host family move on to their daily chores.
