Writing a Letter is always helpful and interesting, whatever the language may be. Hindi is no different but are you aware of all the right greeting and vocabulary that you need in Hindi letter, how to place the address and subject?

Let me show you, how to write a Letter in Hindi for various occasions.

Types of Letter :
1) निजी पत्र – Personal Letter
2) प्रार्थना पत्र – Request Letter
3) व्यवसायिक पत्र – Business Letter
4) सरकारी पत्र – Official Letter

Part of a Letter

Part of typical Hindi Letter is similar to English Letters with date & place, salutation, main message, compliementry closure, signature and address. Please not that there are specific words for salutation (मान्यवर, महोदय) and closure ( भवदीय, आज्ञाकारी etc) just like dear sir, yours friend/sincerely etc in English. Also, each Letter is different than the other i.e. position of address or date.
