Ke Pas and Ke Sath Confusion!

I am confused - sometimes ke pas is translated as ‘with’, and sometimes as 'have'. How does this work?

i.e हमारे पास

hamāre pāsa

we have

but surely this is 'we have’.

Can someone explain?

Thnk you.

Hi Akashamitra, 

 

Our apologies for the delay in getting back to you in regards to this. I have gone ahead and forwarded the question to our Language Department for review, as soon as I get a reply, I will let you know.

Hi Akashamitra,

Thank you for this question.

The translation of the word depends upon whether the sentence has been constructed in active voice  (for eg. I am doing) or passive voice (for eg. this was done by me). For eg. the sentence हमारे पास घर है (hamāre pāsa ghara hai) “We have a house”. Here it gets translated as “we have”. If the sentence was वह हमारे पास है (vaha hamāre pāsa hai) “That is with us”, then it would get translated as “with us”

In short, it depends upon how the sentence has been constructed. Let me know if this makes sense, otherwise I will try explaining it again.
