Don’t ignore Indian languages just because they don’t look glamorous. They are Indian too, just like you and I.

Whether you are a simple grocery shop owner in Kolhapur, negotiating with hundreds of customers or a TV journalist in Nagpur, questioning people on daily basis. Your business requires deep trust and loyalty from your customers .If you don’t speak the local language then you are not the main actor in their country; you are just a bewildered guest. Your business strongly depends on the strength and quality of your local relationships.

3. Daily use

Do you find difficulty in reading Marathi Signboards ?You embarrassingly ask a Taxiwala to repeat what he just said to you.You struggle to communicate with your housemaid.State government officials are not friendly with you and neither are the traffic cops.You wait for the English announcements on Railway platforms. You require agents to decode municipality bills, house agreements, electricity bills and even RTO forms. Break away all these daily hassles. Learn Marathi; make your life easy and comfy.

    Hey, this looks like a very useful website. I am from Europe and have never been exposed to any Indian language apart from just a few words reading novels such as “Shantaram” or randomly meeting Indian people.
    I am now drawn to Marathi through spiritual teachings that originated in the Maharashtra state. I feel I need to learn Marathi to deepen my understanding of the material I have read in English. I have no idea whether I will ever live in India, especially whether it would be in Maharashtra. Could you give me your opinion on whether I should learn Hindi and then Marathi, if I might end up in India some day? Is it much load or just a little more than learning Marathi alone? Thank you.

      Hi Gemini,

      I suggest you to go for Hindi. Hindi is spoken all over the India including Maharashtra. Most of the Maharashtrians speak Hindi as their second language.You won’t have any trouble communicating with them in Hindi.

      We have another website and a mobile app for learning Hindi. : http://www.mindurhindi.com. This will help you in learning Hindi.
