Yesterday, today, tomorrow, the day after, … are terms used so commonly during daily conversation that they are imperative to communication, especially if you are traveling in a new country and want to convey details about when you arrived, what you plan to do today, or where you will be headed tomorrow.
In Hindi, you have to remember only 2 simple words to convey these 3 time periods:
yesterday = कल (kal)
today = आज (aaj)
tomorrow = कल (kal)
Today: आज (aaj)
The usage of आज is relative straightforward. Remember, an event could have already happened today, could be happening as we speak, or could happen in the future before the day ends. Thus, all three tenses could be used in conjunction with आज.
Here are some examples using आज.
Tomorrow: कल (kal)
कल is used in conjunction with the future.
Yesterday: कल (kal)
In Hindi, yesterday and tomorrow both share the same word कल. Only the past tense can be used in conjunction with कल (yesterday).
