MG, NG (E05 website) back in India after US visit
bare satya bolaa yathaatathya ch'aalaa
bahu maaniti lok yen'e tumhaalaa.
disaamaaji kaahitari te lihaave
prasangi akhand'it vaachit j'aave.
Poem in 1670 briefly - Speak truth, act truthfully.
That would bring you respect. Daily read & write.
Some scripture verses may clash with scientific
truths. ( See website E10, M08 page 3). Certain
English spellings may not be true to the sounds.
(website E02). Marathi in Roman deals with that.
Marathi script is good, use it. It makes compact
words. Thus 2 letters (pre)(m) for 4 Roman (p)(r)
(e)(m). Special signs of (r) (e) are mixed with (p)
at special levels. Signs and places of (r ) vary in
raj, tray, prem, rhine, arka. Linear (a -z) Roman,
made phonetic enough, is better for dictionaries,
phone-books, internet-searches, e-discussions.
(sarkaar), in Roman, is as per true sound. Word
sarakaara ( = current script) has silent (a) in (ra)
M12 has 8 proverbs ( two scripts, 3 dots). Media
may kindly give some jokes, poems etc likewise.
(A test - Translate into Marathi, in Roman script).
Cricket is popular in India. It rained heavily today.
Try. Answer is at end
bharataat kriket' lokapriya aahe... aaj' khup paaus
pad'laa. (No capitals, 3 dots bet sentences. Allow
temporarily Cricket, with capital-starter). Circulate
Do you Yahoo!?
Everyone is raving about the all-new Yahoo! Mail.
