    You have used “main kursee par baithaa hoon” for “I am sitting on the chair”.

    Please clarify : is sitting = bait ragtha (present continuous tense).
    That should be “main kursee par bait ragthaa hoon”. Am I not right here. Please clarify.

    Dear Sir:

    Minor correction suggested. है | Hai should be used in lieu of हैं= hain, as the following two sentences are in singular form . I mean dot and nasal sound will not be used when written/pronounced hai .

    टेबल पर (table par)on the table कुर्सी टेबल पर हैं(kursee table par hain)
    Chair is on the table.

    हाथी पर (haathee par)On the elephant पीटर हाथी पर बैठा हैं |(peter haathee pe baitha hain)
    Peter is sitting on elephant.

    If you agree, please amend.

    Thank you.

      You are right Suresh. I know at many places I have used “hain” where “hai” is needed. I’ll correct these mistakes soon. Thanks
