Please give me the second assignment, as I submitted the previous assignment about a holiday 3 days ago.


नवरात्रि जीवन और जीवन शक्ति का उत्सव है: एक नया साल। प्रति वर्ष बदलता है क्योंकि यह चंद्रमा की चाल पर आधारित है। शक्ति और पवित्रता की देवी दुर्गा को इस समय सम्मानित किया जाता है। इस वर्ष यह 17 अक्टूबर से 26 वें दिन है। कृपया इन विचारों को हिंदी लिपि में रखने में मेरी मदद करें, रोमानीकरण की नहीं।

Hi Ellysia,


Thanks for your question!


"kripayaa" doesn't have a "eye" sound.


The correct pronunciation is "krip-yaa".


All the best!

Quick question. The pronounce kripayaa as kripya.

Where as I was told in another Hindi Translator to say it like Krip(eye)yah

I hope that makes a strange sort of sense! 😁 They're just pronounced differently is all and I was inquisitive as to why
