Read That Sign! round 3

The more Hindi I learn, the more I see in my photos from India (summer 2006). Here's a detail from a picture of a street in Agra. I'm proud to say I got this one right away. If you click on the photo, you'll be taken to the original, full photo, where I put the transliteration and some notes. You'll also see what was really the subject of the photo....

Awesome site!! I'm glad I found you through Sheets, I'm an American with a huge passion for Indian Culture. Some of you may remember me as the former Drake Cyanide (long story as to why my blog got cut). Anyway, I love Bollywood, and have tried to pick up on as much Hindi as I can. I generally do this by watching movies over and over, and checking out books in the Library. I also dream of doing a backpacking tour of India someday. (sigh) Keep up the blog and I'll keep reading!

Hey kp! Good to see you again! What books have you tried? Let us know if you want a study buddy. And send your learning trials and triumphs!

Hey! Mostly I checked out over and over and over a Rupert Snell book on beginner's Hindi. Oh, and I buy song CD's, print out the lyrics with translation on bollywoodlyrics.com, and study those (and sing, I love to sing even if it's in Hindi and I don't understand it half the time) I would love a study buddy. What's my first assignment? I will go back and read all of this sites entries to get up to speed. Talk to ya later

Hi kp, I think that Snell beginner's Hindi must be the same book I have!

Hey Maja,
How are you coming along with it? I thought it was a really good book. I also love to memorize quotes from films. One of my favorites, which I wish I could say to an Indian girl someday, is: "Mujhe tumse pyaar ho gaaye"
