Hindi is one of the most auspicious languages in India. There are so many languages spoken in each state. For instance, in Gujarat, you will find people speaking in Gujarati, and in Maharashtra, people will be speaking in Marathi. Similarly, people in India in each state speak their native or local language. Now, people in India speak Hindi also. Hindi is not a tough language. Ramacharitmanas has been written in Awadhi by Goswami Tulsidas.
Before you start learning this language, please ask yourself these questions: why am I looking to learn this language?. What is my end purpose?.

One thing which should always come to our mind are there any Hindi phrases for surviving any situation. In this blog, I will try to answer this question:
Hindi phrases to remember
- Ye to mehenga hai thoda kam karo: This means this is really very expensive, please reduce some price. It happens in India. When you go to any market like Lajpat Nagar in Delhi, Janpath in Delhi, or in any other market of Mumbai or any metropolitan city of India, people always ask for a discount. This is quite natural to ask for a discount in a local market. You can use this phrase which is “Ye to mehenga hai thoda kam karo”. Now I cannot guarantee you whether the shopkeeper will reduce the price further or not.
- Kya aap meri madad karenge: It means will you help me?. When you travel or go anywhere, naturally people say if they can help them. Whether you are working in an office, self-employed or stuck up in traffic or anywhere, people often use this phrase to get help. To be very honest, I do not think that asking for help from anyone is not a crime. If we do not know, it is OK. So next time, when you are in India and stuck up in any situation please ask for help.
- Ye rasta kidhar jaata hai: Well it means about the path and where it will take us. Now we have Google Maps on every phone but still, people ask this question in India. Really? In remote areas, you will find this principle. They will tell you where this path will take you. So, it is also one of the surviving situation phrases.
- Aapse milkar acha laga: It means nice to meet you. When we meet any stranger anytime for the first time, then we use this phrase. We cannot say after the conversation, it was not a good conversation. Whatever be the result of the conversation, we always need to say that it was nice talking to you.
- Kaise hai aap: It means how are you?. Whenever we meet someone anytime we use this phrase. Well in India, whether you are meeting your neighbor or anyone, we often use this phrase.
