    This week's learning word/phrase/sentence:

    1. What is your name?
    2. My name is .............
    3. How are you?
    4. Fine, Thank You

    My mother tongue is Telugu. The Telugu translations are as follows.
    1) What is your name? - Ni peru emiti? (INFORMAL) & Mi peru emiti? (FORMAL)
    2) My name is … - Naa peru …
    3) How are you? - Miru ela unnaru? (FORMAL) & Nuvvu ela unnavu? (INFORMAL)
    4) Fine, Thank you. - Most people don't use this in Telugu. People who use it say it in English itself. Anyway, the literal translation is "Manchidi krutaghyatalu".

    My mother tongue is Hindi. The Hindi translations of the given sentences are as follows -
    1. What is your name? ('Aap ka kya naam hai?'). Formally, instead of the word 'naam', the phrase 'shubh naam' is used.
    2. My name is .............('Mera naam Kailash Kumar hai.')
    3. How are you? ('Aap kaise hain?' or 'Kaisa chal raha hai?' or 'Aap ka kya hal-chal hai?')
    4. Fine, Thank You ('Sab thik-thak hai, dhanyabad.' or 'Thik hai, dhanayabad.')

    Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.

    Very pleased to see the translation from English to few Indian languages, mainly Hindi, Tamil,Telugu,Kannada, Odisha, Bengali , Nagamese and Kumouni.

    Sorry to see No Malayalam and Marathi here. I wish some members from Kerala and Maharashtra to respond to this thread. Even if no member some editor or Web Master from Kerala too can respond, not to leave Malayalam and Marathi blank. Would like to know Punjabi too.
