This book includes all aspects of Hindi language required by Hindi Learning Students.
‘Sanskrit for English Speaking People and Hindi for English Speaking People, by Dr. Ratnakar Narale, are excellent introductory texts for reading and writing these two most important languages of ancient and modern India. The books are practical, comprehensive and easy to understand. They would make good reference manuals for classroom study.’
-Dr. David Frawley, Director, American Institute of Vedic Studies.
Dr Narale has been careful to draw most of the examples in his book from words and concepts that are familiar to Westerners. This emphasizes that Hindi is a world language, and not merely an Indian one. At the same time, Hindi Tutor for English Speaking People does not shirk the task of introducing some aspects of the culture in which the Hindi language developed. For example, one reading exercise not only provides practice in Devnagri, “The Hindi World” discusses the Hindi-speaking people of India, Trinidad, Guyana, Surinam and Fiji. Hindi for English Speaking People may be used either as a classroom text under the guidance of a teacher, or by students who are studying Hindi on their own. It represents hundreds of hours of careful thought and hard effort by Dr Ratnakar Narale, who is to be felicitated for his work. I heartily commend this book to any person who already knows English and wishes to learn Hindi.
