    What is the difference between “माझ्या आई” and “माझे आई”?

    • Akshay says:

      माझे आई is incorrect.
      My mother is माझी आई.

      but when you say My mother’s name you’ll have to say माझ्या आईचे नाव.
      Hope you got it. :)

      • sudha says:

        I was wondering why didn’t we use mazya patni or mazya mulgi?? why are they mazi patni and mazi mulgi? tia

        • Akshay says:

          unless there is a postposition in front of the noun, possessive pronouns will not be modified.

          example : maazi patni = My wife
          maazyaa patni sathi = For my wife

  2. sowmya says:

    In previous lessons you said Tho- he Thi- she and The-It

    But here for “He works in Bank Of India” ,you have written “ते बँक ऑफ इंडिया मध्ये काम करतात” ….Why is “The” used here???It should be “Tho” na?

    • Akshay says:

      Hi Sowmya

      Your doubt is very obvious but if you see the first lesson, there is a category of pronouns i.e. honor pronouns. So, whenever we describe abt someone older than us, we use plural form of the pronoun.

      For example
      te maaze baabaaa aahet.(he is my father)
      te mahaatama gaandhi aahet (he is Mahatma Gandhi)

  9. Rahul says:

    My question was related to ‘la’ and ‘madhe’.
    While saying ‘I work in TCS’, we say ‘Mi TCS madhe kaam karto’.
    Can we not say ‘Mi TCS la kaam karto’
    Similarly the same question goes for ‘I live in Pune.’
    Can i not say ‘Mi Pune madhe rahto.’?

  10. Rahul says:

    One more similar question.
    Please explain the use of ‘यात’ also.
    As in we also say, “Mi Punyat rahto.”
    And you used in the daughter example where you said, “Ti shalet shikte.”
    Couldn’t we use, “Ti shala madhe shikte.” there?
