Hello Harumi,


You would say 'mere dosT ko aaTif aslam bahuT pasanD hai.


'pe' is the shorter pronunciation for 'par' which means 'on' or 'in' depending on the context of the sentence.


'Jo' can have many meanings too like 'if','that' and more.


Hope this answers your question.


Cheers,

Neha

2- Sapna dekha jo tum ne woh mera ho gaya - Hona tha pyar

3- In raaston pe anii walii - kinara


Whats meaning 'pe, jo':flushed:

Hi Harumi,


You can say either of them. Bombay or Mumbai both are correct and indians will understand that.

As this city falls in Maharashtra state of India on Western side of the country. So, Marathi is the native language of the people of Maharashtra so they speak Marathi as well as Hindi because hindi is the National Language.


Thank you for your comments and posts harumi.

Cheers!!
