पिला आकाश (pilaa aakash) = Yellow sky

  1. I didn’t understand one thing. you had using “Hara Phone” in masculine noun. But you had also using “Haree Kithab” in feminine noun. they are also things. how will you use masculine noun. the both are things so we have to use feminine nouns. Please Reply.

    1. Hi Balu,
      Thanks for learning Hindi at mindurhindi.com.
      Coming to your doubt,

      Gender is not decided by whether the noun is a thing or a place or a person. There are no specific rules to decide a gender of noun.You should not generalize that all things are either masculine or feminine. They can be anything.
      Phone is a masculine noun
      Kitab is a feminine noun

      Hence haraa phone and haree kitab

      1. Thank you for Reply.

        But object is always related to subject and verb(even masculine noun or feminine noun right?) especially things like kitab, phone, computer, pen how will we recognise them, is it masculine noun or feminine noun? reply with some examples. please.

        1. Sorry, I can’t be of any help. There are no specific rules to identify genders . You only have to memorize them.
