namaskaar Laura There is a difference between maiM and mujhe. maiM = I / Me whereas mujhe = for me / to me "mujhe" is formed by adding "ko" to maiM. maiM+ko= mujhe. "ko" is called "kaarak", which helps to form objective case. Let us have a look *I will have tea.* This English sentence can be translated to Hindi in two ways _maiM chaay looAOgaa_ Here , _maiM_ , the subject is given importance. The same idea can be expressed giving importance to the object ( here , chaay). Then the Hindi sentence becomes _mujhe chaay chaahie_. ( I want tea) Or, to make it easier, we shall try to make a rule: I want becomes "mujhe ... chaahie" and I will becomes "maiM ... karooAOgaa". Whenever object is given importance use "mujhe" otherwise go for "maiM". This is a simple rule made to make things easier for you! Hope this helps :D aapkee Nikita

Nikita, Do you do any internet conversational tutoring (live chat forums to practice conversation). The only reason I ask is for conversational practice, since the course is great for listening and repeating, but when it comes to understanding spontaneous conversation(in for instance a movie) the speed makes it difficult to understand. And it also allows it easier to spontaneously speak phrases. Do you have any advice? Thank you. Krishna

I have just completed 'Booking a Room' and was rather confused when twice, the phrase we were practising was changed suddenly when they returned to the conversation. We are repeating 'hamara nijee' after Nikita in the phrase 'our own', and then in the conversation it becomes 'hamheM', but that is never explained. Later we repeat with Rohan 'Yahaar subhi kamro ke saahit' but in the conversation it is 'Har kamare ke saahit'. I would like to know why - what happened to the subhi?!! And finally - we practised kismat for cost, and then the sentence stuck in a kiraaiya and a couple of stray kaas and I can't work out which bit means cost, and why both room and night have a kaa after them. What relationship is kismat to kiraaiya? Please excuse my spelling - I haven't the transcript in front of me and am doing it from memory. I'm really pleased to understand why mujhe or maiM are used - I was puzzling over that for ages. I am in India, and loving learning Hindi this way. I'm using everything I learn whenever I can, and people are pleased, and rather surprised!

I think I can help with one a couple of these - kiraaya means literally rent, but in this context would mean room rate, so it's a synonym. If they were saying room ka kiraaya, the ka is possessive, which is understood in our term room rate. It would equate to literally the room's rate (eg. per night). Also, sabhi and har are both words for 'all'. I think har equates more to 'every' - in that there's a term har ek din - every (single) day. I hope that helps! Kind regards PJ

What is the difference between maiM and mujhe? मैं Main= I ( A nominative case). Subject of a sentence. मुझे mujhe comes from मुझ mujh(oblique form of मैं Main) plus postposition को ko to. मुझ mujh + को ko= मुझे mujhe= to me(a dative case). Example 1 using मैं main as a subject of a sentence: मैं यह फ़िल्म पसंद करता हूँ Main yah film pasand karataa hun. I like this film. मैं main is a subject of a sentence. Example 2 using मुझे mujhe as a dative case: मुझे यह फ़िल्म पसंद है Mujhe yah film pasand hai. This film is pleasing to me. Film is a subject of a sentence. Mujhe is in an oblique case. I hope this helps to clarify the difference between main and mujhe.
