My confusion with Mera and MeriMembers, especially Members expert in Hindi,
I am from the south. I have a doubt about the usage of Hindi words Mera and Meri. As per my learning and understanding of Hindi, Mera is for males and Meri is for females. Also, Thumhara and Thumhari, Thera and Theri. But I see females using the word Mera, Thumhara and Tera.
What is correct? Should a man ask a woman -
Thumhara Naam Kya Hai? (or) Thumhari Naam Kya Hai?
Should a woman reply -
'Mera Naam Anamika' (or) 'Meri Naam Anamika'
@ This doubt came in my mind when I saw a celebrity woman using the word Mera. My doubt might look silly but need clarification.
