Using “because”

Often we find ourselves giving excuses to people around us. Whether they are to the boss for bunking the office or to the Mom for not taking the milk  :P. Of-course, our excuses are backed by some kind of rational reasoning to make them look like the truth. While doing so, we use English conjunction “because”. In Marathi, you don’t do anything different. You just replace “because” with “कारण”,  very similar to the way we use kyun ki  in Hindi.Lets go through the following examples because that’s the easiest way to quickly absorb the new word.


मी ऑफिस ला आलो/ली नाही कारण मी आजारी होतो/ते. (mee office la aalo/li naahi kaaran mi aajari hoto/te)

I didn’t come to office because I was not well.


भारत हारला  कारण सचिन खेळला नाही.  (bhaarat haarlaa kaaran sachin khelalaa naahi)

India lost because Sachin didn’t play.


आज सुट्टी आहे कारण आज रविवार आहे. (aaj sutti aahe kaaran aaj ravivaar aahe)

Today is holiday because today is Sunday.


मी नापास झालो/ली  कारण मी अभ्यास नाही केला. (mee naapaas zaalo/li kaaran mee abhyaas naahi kela)

I failed because I didn’t study.


  कारण  =  because
