It seems like we always miss each other. Whenever i'm online, nobody else is there.
For those who still would like to help me learn Hindi, i suggest we meet at a certain time on msn or yahoo or gmail or skype or ...
Right now, i don't have a job so i'll be online on msn almost every day, usually the whole day and evening.
Send me an e-mail here at voxswap and i'll give you my id (i'm not allowed to post it here)
Thanks a lot in advance for the help !
Take care !

I would like to share about History of Hindi Language
Although Hindi ranks fifth among the world's languages, it is the language of only one third of India's population. In southern India, where the languages are as different from Hindi as English is from Japanese, scores of people died in 1965 protesting the government's attempt to convert them to Hindi. Today, Hindi's official status continues in limbo.
Like most northern Indian languages, Hindi is descended from Sanskrit, the Asian cousin of Latin and Greek. Originating as a trade jargon which became current after the Muslim conquest of Delhi in the 12th century, it was used in the cities and the army camps and was known as Urdu, which meant "camp." For centuries, it coexisted with innumerable other dialects, absorbing many Persian and Arabic words during the Mogul period (1526-1707). These conditions continued through the early years of the British regime, until 1835, when a popular form of the trade jargon was developed as a standard language through a teaching program for British civil servants. Known interchangeably as Urdu or Hindustani, it was used by the schools and the government, although English still dominated. Hindus would not accept Urdu for other than official purposes, because, written in Arabic script, it represented the religion of Mohammed. A new literary prose style, Hindi, emerged, written in the Devanagari script of Sanskrit, and many Persian and Arabic words were replaced by Sanskrit words. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, special societies were formed for the propagation of Hindi in devanagari script and Hindi schools. In 1947, with independence from Britain and partitioning, Hindi and Urdu, essentially the same language, Hindustani, became the official languages of India and Pakistan, respectively. Under pressure from Hindu extremists, a special committee was appointed to purge Hindi of foreign words and create new Sanskrit-derived words, 300,000 of which were needed to bring Hindi into the 20th century. In place of "station," they recommended the absurdly long, synthetic agnirathyantraviramshan, which means literally "resting place for a chariot run by fire." Hindi is still a long way from standardization.
