DIALOGUE
प्रणव : हम आज जिस विषय पर बात करने के लिए इकठ्ठा हुए हैं, उस पर आते हैं। पहले करन, हम आपसे इस बारे में सुनना चाहेंगे कि हमारे प्रतिद्वंदी की दिशा क्या रही है, वो कैसा कर रहे हैं, और क्या तरकीब इस्तेमाल कर रहे हैं।
प्रणव : फिर मनीषा, हम आप से सुनेंगे हमारे मार्किट शेयर्स के बारे में, और आगे की स्ट्रैटेजी पर चर्चा करेंगे। तो अब करन आप से शुरू करते हैं, हमारे प्रतिद्वंदी के विश्लेषण को लेकर।
करन : जी सर। जानकारी को प्रस्तुत करने से पहले मैं आप सब से कुछ पूछना चाहूंगा।
करन : मुझे लगता है हमारी जानकारी इकठ्ठा करने की प्रक्रिया से सभी वाकिफ हैं, और यह हम पहले की मीटिंग में कई बार कवर कर चुके हैं|
करन : तो अगर किसी को आपत्ति न हो तो प्रक्रिया की बात से हम आगे बढ़ें?
प्रणव : हाँ बिल्कुल। मुझे नहीं लगता है किसी को आपत्ति होगी। आप आगे बढ़िए।
मनीषा : प्रक्रिया के विषय पर सवाल हो तो अंत में ज़रूर पूछ सकते हैं।
प्रणव : हाँ यह तरीका सही होगा, क्यूंकि हमारे पास वक्त भी कम है।
करन : जी। तो जैसा कि आप जानते हैं, हमारे कॉम्पिटिशन में से प्रधान प्रतिद्वंदी यह तीन कम्पनी रही हैं, क्यूंकि यह तीन कम्पनी हमारे सारे मूल क्षेत्रों में बिज़नेस करती हैं।
करन : मैं सिर्फ इन तीनो की बात करना चाहूंगा, एक एक करके और फिर उनकी तुलना करके। मैं कम्पनी ए से शुरुवात करना चाहूंगा।
Eric: Listen to the conversation one time slowly.

Eric: Listen to the conversation with the English translation
Pranav: Let's get to the matter that we're gathered here to discuss. First, we'd like to hear from Karan about how our competitors are faring, what their approach has been, and what strategy they are employing.
Pranav: Then, Maneesha, we'll hear from you about our market shares, and will discuss strategy after that. So, Karan, we'll start with you, now, with the competitor analysis.
Karan: Yes, sir. Before presenting the information, I would like to ask you something.
Karan: I think everyone here is familiar with the process we follow for gathering the information, and we have covered this in previous presentations.
Karan: So if no one objects, can we move past that section?
Pranav: Yes definitely. I don't think anyone will have a problem with that. You can go ahead.
Maneesha: If anyone has any questions regarding the process, we can address them at the end.
Pranav: Yes that sounds reasonable, especially since we have limited time.
Karan: Okay. As you all know, amongst our competition, these have been our three main competitors, because these companies are doing business in all our main business areas.
Karan: I will only be focusing on these three companies, one by one and then comparatively. I would like to start with company A.
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Eric: We were talking about business this time.
Udita: The most well-known industry in India at the moment is the IT industry.
Eric: Why is the IT industry so strong in India?
Udita: Indian schools teach basic programming and software to students early, rather than teaching how to use computers, so that is an advantage.The industry boomed in the 2000s, as companies in the US offshored work to India, and the time difference helped.
Eric: The IT industry is relatively new, so that must have been a big shift for India.
Udita: It was. Before IT, the industry that was particularly strong in India was the steel industry.
Eric: Oh, I’ve heard of Tata Steel. That’s an Indian company, right?
Udita: Yes. The Tatas are early pioneers. They set up industrial towns around their factories and provided full welfare services to all of their employees all over the country.
Eric: Tata Steel also has operations in many other countries.
Udita: Yes, it’s pretty famous for steel worldwide, and has expanded into other industries.

KEY VOCAB AND PHRASES
Eric: Let's have a closer look at the usage of some of the words and phrases from this lesson. The first word is..
Udita: प्रतिद्वंदी praTiDvaNDii
Eric: meaning "rival,” “competitor". What can you tell us about this?
Udita: This is a noun. It can be used to refer to any team or person that is in opposition to you.
Eric: Such as in sports tournaments or other competitions?
Udita: Yes. Outside of competitions though, it has a negative connotation, as it can refer to those who are in opposition to you.
Eric: Can you give us an example sentence using this word?
Udita: Sure. For example, you can say.. मेरे प्रतिद्वंदी सभी बहुत मंजे हुए खिलाड़ी थे। mere praTiDvaNDii Sabhii bahuT maNje hue khilaadii THe.
Eric: ..which means "My opponents were all very accomplished players." Okay, what's the next phrase?
Udita: प्रस्तुत करना praSTuT karNaa
Eric: meaning "to present". What can you tell us about this?
Udita: प्रस्तुत praSTuT is a noun that means “present” and करना karNaa is a verb that means “to do”.
Eric: So together they mean “to present” or “to show”.
Udita: Usually प्रस्तुत करना praSTuT karNaa is used to talk about showing presentations, but it can also refer to producing a presentation.
Eric: As in, creating the presentation?
Udita: Yes, creating and showing altogether. It can also be used to talk about showing things, such as an ID.
Eric: Can you give us an example using this word?
Udita: Sure. For example, you can say.. कक्षा नौ और दस के छात्रों ने मिलकर नाटक प्रस्तुत किया। kaksaa Nau aur DaS ke chaaTron Ne milkar Naatak praSTuT kiyaa.
Eric: .. which means "Students from grades 9 and 10 presented a play together." Okay, what's the next phrase?
Udita: से वाकिफ होना Se vaakif hoNaa
Eric: which means "to be familiar with, to be aware of." Can you break this down for us?
Udita: से Se means “from” or “with”, वाकिफ vaakif means “familiar,” and होना hoNaa is the verb meaning “to be”.
Eric: It literally means “to be familiar with”.
Udita: The subject that you are familiar with should go before this phrase.
Eric: Can you add in extra words to say that you are “very” familiar with something?
Udita: Yes, you can. You can add qualifying words such as बहुत bahuT, meaning “very” before वाकिफ vaakif.
Eric: What’s an example using this word?
Udita: You can say.. क्या आप कैंसिल करने की प्रक्रिया से वाकिफ हैं? Kyaa aap kaiNSil karNe kii prakriyaa Se vaakif hain?
Eric: .. which means "Are you familiar with the cancellation procedure?" Okay, now onto the lesson focus.

Lesson focus

Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn about using the future tense of the verb “to want” for formal public speaking and presentations.
Udita: “I would like to” is used commonly on formal occasions, using the future tense, first person singular or plural, such as in business meetings.
Eric: How is it used in business meetings?
Udita: Instead of saying something blunt such as “do this”, it’s best to say “I’d like to ask you to do…”
Eric: Can you give us an example?
Udita: मैं आपके नये उपक्रम के बारे में सुनना चाहूंगी main aapke Naye upkram ke baare mein SuNNaa caahuNgii
Eric: “I’d like to ask you about your new venture”. How do you make that sentence?
Udita: मैं main, meaning “I”, followed by the object - such as ‘your new venture’, followed by the verb -ना Naa-form, followed by चाहूंगा caahuNgaa. Remember that the feminine singular form is चाहूंगी caahuNgii.
Eric: Can you give us an example of another sentence using this pattern?
Udita: मैं इस विषय पर चर्चा करना चाहूंगा। main iS visay par carcaa karNaa caahuNgaa
Eric: “I’d like to discuss this topic.” How about another example?
Udita: मैं आपसे X के बारे में सुनना चाहूंगा। main aapSe X ke baare mein SuNNaa caahungaa
Eric: “I’d like to hear about X from you”.
Udita: In this sentence, X is whatever you would like to discuss, and सुनना SuNNaa means “to hear”. We can also use other verbs such as पूछना puuchNaa.
Eric: Which means “to ask”.
Udita: Another tool is the first person plural, which we use in formal speech as well.
Eric: When would you use this?
Udita: It’s usually used by Masters of Ceremony and hosts at big events. It’s also used in meetings and conferences.
Eric: What is the sentence pattern for this?
Udita: हम ham, meaning “we”, followed by the object, followed by the verb -ना Naa- form, followed by चाहेंगे caaheNge.
Eric: How is this pattern used?
Udita: It’s similar to “would like to”. You can use it for requests, such as हम आपसे कुछ शब्द सुनना चाहेंगे। ham aapSe kuch sabD SuNNaa caaheNge
Eric: “We’d like to hear a few words from you”.
Udita: There are many examples of things that a Master of Ceremonies may say in the lesson notes.
Eric: So be sure to check them out!

Outro

Eric: Okay, that’s all for this lesson. Thank you for listening, everyone, and we’ll see you next time!
