PREFACE. 



^w 



The Hindustdni language, from the extent to which 
it is spoken, and from the capacity which it possesses of 
expressing ideas on any subject with facility, deserves 
the attention of every European in this country. The 
design of the present publication is to supply a short and 
easy introduction to this popular tongue. 

It must be observed, that the Hindustdni or Urdii 
differs essentially from the Hindi or Hindui, the for- 
mer being derived principally from the Arabic or Per- 
sian, and the latter from the Sanskrit. The inflections 
of both being the same, and the strange admixture of 
them that frequently obtains, where both are spoken in 
the same city, have led some to the erroneous conclusion 
that they are the same language ; whereas the Urdu 
is peculiar in its application to the Musalman popula* 
tion in every part of India, while the Hindul applies 
only to the Hindus in the Upper Provinces. 

The work is divided into three parts, and contains a 
Grammar, a Vocabulary, and a select assortment of Read-* 
ing Lessons. 

The first part of this volume, though concise, will be 
found to contain all the important grammatical rules 
that are to be met with in much larger works. Conden-* 
sation, perspicuity, and arrangement have been the great 
objects at which the author has aimed. The Syntax of 
the different parts of speech has been intermixed with 
the Etymology, in order to save the multiplying of 
chapters, and with a view of comprising every thing 
necessary to be said on one subject in one place, which 



IT PREFACE. 



IS an important advantage, when it can be secured with- 
out creating confusion. Both the size and design of the 
work prevented the introduction of a regular system of 
Prosody ; this is not considered as a part of Grammar 
by the Natives, and if included in it, could be studied 
with profit only by those who are acquainted with the 
Arabic and Persian languages. 

The second part contains a Vocabulary of nouns^ ad- 
jectives, and verbs. In supplying the list of substantives, 
an attempt has been made to remove the difficulty aris- 
ing from their gender, which is confessedly a source of 
great perplexity to a learner, both in speaking and in 
writing. It is so, because the gender of the noun affects 
the final terminations of adjectives, pronouns, and verbs 
to such an extent, that it is impossible for a person, with 
certainty in his own mind, to speak or write a single 
sentence correctly without a knowledge of it. If the 
substantive is feminine, adjectives ending with a vowel 
must be changed to agree with it ; as hura admit a 
bad man ; hurt chiz, a bad Jthing. If the substantive 
is feminine, the possessive case of all the pronouns must, 
like the adjectives, be made to agree with it ; as merd 
gkar^ ray house ; meri kit/ih, ray book. In like man- 
ner the verbs must agree with their nominative case, not 
only in number and person, but also in gender ; as, ddmi 
dtdy the man comes ; (purat dti, the woman comes. This 
being the case, it is desirable that some plan should be 
adopted, by which the learner may be able to distinguish 
a feminine from a masculine noun. No rules of grammar 
are found sufficient for this purpose, as may be seen from 
the confession of the best grammarians. " Males and fe- 
males are naturally masculine and feminine, whatever their 
terminations may be : ee (i), /, sh, are in general feminine, 
while a (d)^ u (a or ah)y and all the rest, ^there being no 



PREPACB. V 

neuter in HindustaDi,) may be treated as masculine finals, 
till the scholar learns the reverse from practice, the 
grammar, and dictionary*." *^ Rules on the subject of 
gender are extremely vague in the Hindustani, and prac- 
tice in the language must be appealed to as the only sure 
guidef ." Committing the subject, however, entirely to 
practice, leaves the student in a labyrinth for a consider- 
able period, which, to a mind resolved on certainty, is 
far from being happy. With a view, therefore, to remove 
this difficulty, a list of the nouns contrary to, or not to 
be accounted for by rule, has been given in the second 
part : these being known, all others may be considered 
as regular, according to the rules of the grammar. To 
these a list of such regular nouns as occur in the Read- 
ing Lessons has been prefixed, by which addition the 
work is made complete ; and it is believed, the first and 
second parts now contain an explanation of all the words 
that occur in the third. 

The third part consists of Reading Lessons, and is 
divided into five chapters, each containing a number of 
sections. The first chapter is a collection of simple sen- 
tences, familiar and moral : the second, a selection of 
short and easy fables : the third, a collection of anecdotes, 
partly from the Hindi Story-Teller, and partly translated 
from English : the fourth, a selection of stories from the 
Khirad-Afroz : and the fifth, of argumentative pieces 
from the Ikhwan-us SufL Care has been taken that 
all the Reading Lessons should be pure Hindustani, 
without that admixture of Sanskrit words, which is some- 
times admitted ; and the chapters have been so arrang- 
ed, as to rise one above another in difficulty : so that, 
after being perfectly master of these, the student will be 
able to proceed to any other work in Hindustani.

Tl PRCrACE. 

The author is sensible, that there are persons in this 
country who might have executed the task which he has 
undertaken, in a much better manner ; but as their time 
is chiefly occupied in more important, or more pressing 
engagements, and as the want of an introductory work 
of the kind was once felt by himself, and he doubts not 
is still felt by many others, he thought himself justified 
in making this attempt, hoping that it might prove use- 
ful to such as are commencing the study of the Hindu- 
stani language. 

Since the printing of the second edition in the Arabic 
character was commenced, the propriety of writing the 
Hindustani in the Roman character has been warmly 
advocated ; and a systematic scheme, after the plan of Sir 
Wm. Jones, adopted for that purpose. The friends of 
that system having requested me to allow them to put 
this work into the Roman character, I cheerfully con- 
sented ; and a third edition of it, in the Romanized form, 
is now presented to the Public as the result of their 
labours.

HfVDUSTA^Nl^ grammar: 3 

That the learner may be able to pronounce the Hin- 
dustani language correctly by means of the Roman 
letters, it will be necessary here to explain the name 
and power of each letter. 

1. Of the Names and Powers. 

a akltr is pronounced like a in ahove^ adrifty adroiij 

&c. and never like a in ale. 

Short u as in but, would express the sound 

very well in English, and by many it is so 

employed; but it cannot be substituted for it 

without entirely destroying the analogy which 

exists between it and the next letter. 
k kkkr is the elongated sound of the preceding letter, 

and is uniformly pronounced like a in artj 

pardon, &c. 
i ikar has the sound oft in j'm, hegin^ &c. 
1 ik^r is the elongated sound of the preceding, as in 

the words antique^ caprice, police, &c. 
u uk&r is pronounced like u in bull, push, &c. 
6 6k^r is the long sound of the preceding, as in the 

words pure, rule, tube, secure, &c. 
e ek&r is pronounced like the first e in ere, where^ 

there, &c. This is the French i, as iti, bontS, 

or charactSre. 
o okkr is sounded like o in no, note, go, &c. 
ai aik&r has always the sound of ai in aisle. 
au auk^r has the sound of au as pronounced on the 

continent of Europe. It is like ow in English 

in cow, now, &c. 



4 HINOUSTA^M^ GRAMMAR. 

a } a* aign. When a dot is placed under any Yowel, 
it signifies that it is a guttural, and is to be 
pronounced as far as possible from the throat. 
On this arrangement and method of expressing the 
vowels, a few observations. may be offered, if the 
characters for expressing the long and short vowels are 
to correspond, as ihey must do to be systematic, then it 
is impossible to liave a simpler or more exact repre- 
sentation of them than is given in a d^ i i^ u A.^ Those 
who reject system for sounds express them by u if, i ee, 
oOy 00 ; by which representation the analogy existing 
between the letters is entirely destroyed, and the sound 
only preserved. Every scholar must acknowledge, that 

that representation which unites system and sound is to 
be preferred to that which sacrifices either: this happy 
union is completely effected in the case of the vowels a 
d^ii^ud; so that it may be fairly inferred that no 
improvement can be made upon this representation. 

It would be a felicitous circumstance if the same 
could be said of the diphthongs; but here exists a little 
discrepancy : e and o, which in Nagari and Persian are 
diphthongs, are represented by single vowels ; while ai 
and au, which properly represent diphthongs, have no 
unexceptionable words in the English language to con- 
vey their sound ; the word aisle being irregular. In 
the diphthongs, therefore^ a considerable sacrifice is 
made both in sound and system. If represented sys* 
tematically, they would be written ai di, audu^ the first 
two being composed of a and 2, and the second two of a 
and u ; by this systematic arrangement the whole of the 
vowels and diphthongs, ten in number, would be redu- 
cible to the three simple elements of a, e, u. This would 



HlNDUSTA^Nl^ GRAMMAR. 



be a great advantage as to system, but sound is not in 
its favour. The ai would be sounded as it commonly 
is in English, in laid^ paidtsaid^kc, and this would an* 
swer very well ; but au must be pronounced as in haui^ 
boy^ &c. which is irregular. The di and da would be 
sounded almost distinctly as separate vowels. Since 
therefore it is impossible to find such representatives 
of the diphthongs as will combine all the advantages 
of system and sound, we are laid under the necessity of 
abiding by those which Sir W. Jones and scholars on 
the continent of Europe have approved and adopted. 
The e, o, a/, an, have at least this advantage, that they 
express the sounds in the most concise way possible.

b ba has the regular sound of h in such words as 
bad^ bed, bid^ &c. 

bh bha is the preceding letter aspirated. Each letter 
must be distinctly pronounced, but both in 
one breath. The only method of giving a 
tolerable idea of this in English is to take the 
last letter of one word and the first letter of 
the next, and unite them together in one 
sound, as hob-house^ or dropping the first 
syllable b^house.

8 NOUNS. 



CHAPTER II. 

OF NOUNS. 

To nouns belong declension, gender, number, and 

case. 

The declensions in Hindust&iii are two. 

1 be genders are two, the masculine and the fe- 
minine. 

The numbers are two, the singular and the 

plural. 

The cases are eight, the nominative, the genitive 
or possessive, the instrumental, the dative, the objec- 
tive or accusative, the ablative, the locative, and the 
Tocative. The dative being always the same as the 
objective, is not repeated in the declensions. 

(l) Of the Declension of Nouns. 

After various attempts to reduce nouns to one or 
more regular declensions, according to their final 
letters, it appeared evidently more simple, and more 
conformable to the genius of the language, to class 
them according to their gender, and it is hoped that 
this classification will remove the obscurity arising 
from the total want of arrangement. 

That the division of nouns into two declensions is 
not merely artificial, is plain from this, that the 
second declension is distinguished from the Jirsty by 
its gender, by the formation of the nominative cases 
plural, and by its invariably ending with an immu- 
table letter. 



MOVNt. 

I. Declension. 

The first declension, consisting of nouns of the mas- - 
culine gender, varies according to the final letter of 
the word, which is either mutable or immutable. 

First, Mu tab lbs. 

Substantives ending with d and A are mutable, and 
change the d and hto e when inflected in the singular, 
and drop them in like manner after the nominative 
case in the plural ; as be\k a soUf bandah a slave. 



Singular. 
N. Bet& a «on. 
6. Bete \& ke, ki, of a son. 
I. Bete ne by a son. 
O. Be(e ko a son, to a son. 
A. Bete Be from a son. 
L. Bete men in a son. 



Plural. 
Befe sons. 

Befon k& &c. of sons. 
Baton ne by sons. 
BetoQ ko sonSf to sons. 
Befos se from sons* 
BefoQ men in soni. 



v. Ai Bete O son. \ Ai Befo O sons. 

Bandah a siave^ is declined in exactly the same man 

ner. 

Singular. 



N. Bandah a slave 

G. Bande ka of a stave^ ^e. 



Plural. 
N. Bande slaves^ 
G. Bandon k& ofslaveSf 4*c. 



The instrumental and vocative cases being peculi- 
arlj applicable to nouns of agency or animate beings, 
and comparatively seldom used to nouns signifying 
inanimate things, unless personified, may be omitted 
in the inflection of all such nouns: thus, rksik a road^ 
d&nah grain^ &c. may be declined precisely like the 
preceding, with the omission of these cases. This re- 
mark applies to all inanimate things, whether masca- 
line or feminine, and consequently to both the declen* 
sions.

nor drop the final ; as sing. nom. Khudii, gen. Khud&

11. Declension. 

The second declension, consisting of nouns of the 
feminine gender^ does not change or drop the last let^ 
ter of the Word, either vowel or consonant ; but sim- 
ply adds to it the different terminations. It differs 
however from the immutablesof the first declension in 
the formation of its nominative cases plural, as beti a 
daughter, aurat a woman.

N. Beti a daughter. 
G. Beti kiofa daughter.

daughter, and all others like aurat a woman ; conse- 
quently feminines ending with dor h do not change or 
drop them like masculines. Thus iza pain, makes

(2) Of Gender. 

The gender of nouns, as far as it can be ascertained 
by their meaning or termination, will be considered in 
this place ; nouns, the gender of which can be known 
by no rules^ will be enumerated in the second part of 
this work. 

Some nouns are recognized at once from their mean-* 
ing to be masculine or feminine ; as mard a man, aurat 
a woman ; b&p a father, m& a mother ; l;:hasam a hus-* 
band, joru a wife; malika king, malikah a queen; bail 
an ox, gke a cow. 

The Persian words nar a male, and m&dah a female, 
are sometimes used to distinguish the gender ; as nar 
gau a bull, m&dah gau a cow ; sheri nar a tiger, sheri 
m&dah a tigress. 

Nouns ending in t, sh, and i are feminine: as hkt 
a word, tal&sh search, roti bread. 

Nouns ending in any other letter besides those 
above mentioned are masculine; as bachcha a 
child, pardah a skreen, pagw afoot, tk} a crown, sir 
the head^ 

Denominatives, or words descriptive of profession, 
are masculine; as k&sibi, a weaver, kiighazi a paper^ 
maker, n^bi a prophet, darvesh a dervise. 



NOUNS. 13 

Di^^syllables of Arabic origin, beginning with t and 
ha\ing i before tbe last consonant, are feminine; 
as t&sir impressionj t&kir delay ^ t&dib correction^ tltri^h 
date^ &c. Tkviz an amulet^ is a solitary exception. 

Some nouns which are feminine in the singular, 
become masculine when they take the Arabic plural, 
or vice versa ; as tarf f. a side^ atr&f m. environs; mas- 
jid F. a mosque^ masijid M. mosques; waqt m. timCp 
auqitt F. time; walad m . a son^ aulltd f. offspring. 

All nouns of Sanskrit origin ending with A are fe* 
minine ; as ]gAX}pk favour ^ puj^ worship. 

Of the letters in the Alphabet, a,^, s^ sh, f, z, a, ^A, 
/, k, I, m, n, are masculine, and the rest are femi« 
nine. 

Compounds are of the same gender as the last word 
of which the J are composed, as daftar l^hltnah M. a 
book-room or office^ rustumg&h f. afield of battle. 

Feminine nouns are formed from masculine ones by 
the terminations i, n, or in ; as be^ a son^ be^i a 
daughter ; shlthz^dah a prince^ sh&hz4di ]a princess ; 
duiha a bridegroom, dulhan a bride; dhobf a washer* 
man, dhobin a washerwoman ; bany& m. bany&ifi f. a 
shopkeeper^ &c. 

Sometimes dni and ni are used for the same pur- 
pose; as mibtar m. mihtar&ni f. a sweeper; mor a 
peacock, moritni a peahen ; u&t m, untni f. a camel ; 
b4gh a tiger, bitghnl a tigress. 

A few are irregular in their formation ; as hhki a bro- 
ther^ bahin a sister ; beg or kh&n a lord^ begum or Ifhk-^ 
nam a lady; tk^k a king, rkuia queen; randi (obso- 
lete) a widower J r&n4 o, widow ; sassur a father^n4aw.

wild duck; gaur4 a cock-sparrow, gamriyk a hen^par-^ 
row ; b&tbi m. hathni f. an elephant. 

(3) Of Number. 

The general method of forming the plurals from the 
singular may be seen in the declensions : it will be 
necessary therefore in this place to state only the addi- 
tional methods that are occasionally adopted. 

The plural of many masculine nouns being the same 
as the singular, it is often necessary to add some such 
words as sab all, and bahut many^ to distinguish the 
plural, as ghar a house, sab ghar the houses. 

When the noun is preceded by an adjective of 
number or quantity, the plural termination is 
often omitted, as das aurat ten women, bahut hkt 
many words. 

The regular plural termination on is used not only 
with the cases, but with the prepositions when the cases 
are omitted ; ap ghoroQ par upon horses. 

Mouns derived from the Persian sometimes form the 
plural by an for the masculine, and ha or jdt for the 
neuter; as, s&qi, ^€{ikn cup-bearers ; s&l, sitlhli years; 
subah, subahjlit provinces. 

Nouns derived from the Arabic occasionally take the 
Arabic plural, for the formation of which no regular 
rules can be given ; as khat, l^hutut, letters ; ^habar, 
akhbar news; unsur, an£tsir elements ; klim, ulam4 the 
learned; nabi, ^rahijk prophets ; mauj6dah, mauj6d4t 
beings. To these plurals the regular plural is some- 



NOUNS. 15 

times needlessly added, as from hukm is formed 
ahkitm and ahk&mofi kk commands. 

Words of time and number may take the plural 
termination an in the nominative plural as well as the 
other cases ; so baras, barson yean ; din, dinon days ; 
mahjnah, mahinon months ; pahar, paharoB watches ; 
hazlir, haz&ron thousands. 

Words of two syllables with an initial short vowel 
followed by zabar, drop the zabar in the plural 
number, as kamar, kamren the loins. 

(4) Of Case. 

AH the cases are simple in their formation and also 
in their use, with the exception of the possessive and 
instrumental ; these being a source of great perplexity 
to learners, require more particular illustration. The 
following observations, it is hoped^ will simplify this 
subject, and show the proper application of all the 
csises* 

The nominative occupies the first place in the sen- 
tence, and always remains uninflected in the singular. 

When two nouns coming together signify the same 
person or thing, they are put in the same case ; but 
when they signify a different person or thing, the one 
governs the other in the possessive case, and requires 
that case to agree with it in gender ; as, Ahmad uska 
bhki his brother^ Ahmad ; ghar kk malik the master of 
the house ; mard ki poshltk the man's clothes. 

if the possessive is governed by a noun of the mas- 
culine gender in the nominative casCy kd is used ; but 
if governed by a masculine noun in any other case, or 
by a preposition, he is used ; as r&ja kk naukar the 



U,^f 



16 HINDUSTA^NI GRAMMAR. 

king^s servant ; rij& ke naukar ko to the kingU servant ; 
hkdshkh ke be^ the king^s sons ; naukaroQ ke s&th with 
the servants. 

If the possessive is governed bj a feminine noun» ki 
IS used in all cases ; as rkjk ki be^ the king^s daughter ; 
l^huda ki hkt wfrom thewordof God. 

The possessive case of nouns generallj precedes the 
word by which it is governed, though it may option- 
ally be put after it ; as shukar kk sijdah or sijdah shu* 
kar kk the worship of thanksgiving ; gbar ke p^ or p&s 
ghar ke near the house. 

The Persian and Arabic forms of the genitive are 
occasionally used in Hindustani; as ganje d&nish 
a treasure of wisdom ; talib ul ilm a seeker of know^ 
ledge^ a student. Persian words ending with either 
vowel or cousonant take e fox the sign of the genitive ; 
as bandahe Khud& a servant of God ; hauw&e bahr air 
of the sea. 

The sign of the possessive case is often omitted be. 
fore the prepositions, as kin&re pius to or near the shores 
nazdik darw&ze near the door. 

Instances sometimes occur in which a genitive cane 
is used ill consequence of a noun understood ; as 
tum uski suno hear ye him, i. e« uski b&t his word. 

The adverbs yah&n here^ and wah^n there, govern the 
possessive case like nouns or prepositions ; as, slthib ke 
y ab&n jko go to the gentleman^ s here^ 

The quality or universality of a thing is expressed 
by the possessive case; as, bayesir k4 clihokrk a boy with 
a great head ; khet kk khet the whole of the field. Hence 
also such expressions as, sabk& baf& greatest of all; 
sab kk sab all of them. 



NOUNS. 17 

The instrumental case is always used instead of the 
nominative, before iransiiive verbs in the perfect tense or 
itsformatives; the nominative case to the verb follows, 
and the verb which succeeds, thoug'b active in its ter- 
mination, is passive in its signification ; as, &dmi ne 
arz ki by the man a request was made, or the man re^ 
quested; aurat ne jaw&b dijii by the woman an answer 
was given, or the woman gave an answer ; uske bete ne ye 
b&ten sunen by his son these words were heard, or his 
son heard these words ; kauwon ne ghonsle ban4e the by 
the crows the nests had been built^ or the crows had built 
their nests how^. 

When the nominative follows the instrumental case, 
or when instead of a nominative a dative case follows, 
the verb is used impersonally, and is always of the third 
person singular masculine ; as, b&dsh&h ne ka\ik it was 
said by the king, or the king said; aurat ne kahk the 
woman said ; mardon ne auraton ko mkrk it was bea- 
ten to the women by the men, or the men beat the women. 

It is not uncommon for both the above forms to oc- 
cur even in the same sentence; as, unhuii ne b&dsh&h ki 
madah o sank ki, aur kah& they praised and commended 
their king, and said, &c. 

If the verb is not transitive, or being transitive, if it 
is not used in the perfect, &c. the construction is differ- 
ent : the nominative case is placed first, the objec- 
tive next, and the verb last ; as mkVik apne naukar ko 



* In the above instances k{ agrees ^ith ^rz as its nominative ; diyd 
agrees with jawdb, sunen agrees with bdten, and bande the agrees with 
ghonsle ; and this being granted, which it is supposed no one can deny, 
there is no possible way of accounting for the other words grammati- 
cally but by considering them as Instrumental cases. 



18 hindusta'ni' grammar. 

mkrik tha the master was beating his servant; sab in* 
^kn kpnk martabah baj&n karenge all men will relate 
their own greatness. 

The dative case is like the objective in form, and of- 
ten connected with it ; hence when by this position 
the termination ko would occur twice in succession, 
the ko of the objective is omitted, and that of the dative 
only retained ; as, yih larki hamko do give this girl ie 
me; wuh qaziyeko faisal kar degk he will put an end 

to the dispute. 

In nouns signifying inanimate things, the objective 
termination is often omitted, and the nominative forns 
used; as, rkstk taiykr karo prepare the way ; wuh tum- 
hen sub chizen dega he will give you all the things. 

When the objective termination of a noun governed 
by an active verb is omitted, the influence which its 
presence would have on the word in regimen with it, 
is lost, and it becomes a nominative, not only in its 
form, but in its government too ; as, b^p bete ka ghar 
ban&ta hai the father is building his son^s house ; but 
with ko thus, bap bete ke ghar ko banatit hai. 

When a postposition*, or another word is understood 
after a noun, and it is not governed by an active verb, 
the preceding genitive case, &c. are aflfected the same 
as if it were expressed j as, apne bete ke ghar gaya, he 
went to his son^s house; understand men after ghar. Ab- 
ke koshish karung^ now I will seek^ understand waqt 
men time. 



* For the sake of distinction, we call those postpositions which 
always succeed the noun, and those prepositions which often precede as 
well as follow. 



NOUNS« 19 

The ablative and locative cases, like the objective, 
generally precede the verb by which they are govern- 
ed ; as, we sab is kkm se hkz kye they all turned away 
from this business ; usne apne pet ko lazlz ghosht se 
bhara he Jilled himself with sweet meat ; mere sir meg 
dard hai / have a pain in my head; wuh us mulk mcQ 
gay a he is gone to that country. 

The ablative termination is also used with undeclin- 
able words^ and frequently both the locative and ab- 
lative terminations are used at the same time ; as, wuh 
&pne ghore parsegira he fell from, off his horse; un id- 
mion men se ek ne kaha one of the men said. 

When two or more nouns succeed each other, the 
terminations which form the cases are commonly ap- 
plied only to the last ; as usne bahut si arz o iltim&s ke 
b^d kaha he^ after exceedingly much praying and he-- 
seeching^ said; burhape ke sabab meri ankhon, kknon, 
aur hauw^s meQ khalal k gay& hy my eyes^ ears^ and 
senses have become injured through old age. 

To conclude these remarks on the cases, we may add 
as a general rule, that conjunctions connect the same 
cases ; prepositions govern the possessive case ; and an 
interjection is generally used before the vocative case 
of nouns ; as, ai zam&ne tere s&th kitna fitn& o fasad 
hai timCy how much perfidy and wickedness are with thee ! 



so hindusta'ni' grammar. 

CHAPTER III. 

OF ADJECTIVES. 

(1) Adjectives generally precede their substantives^ 
and if they end with a, undergo a change similar to 
that of nouns in the genitive case, to agree with the 
word which they qualify in gender ; as,achchh41ark& a 
good boy, achchhe larke ke s^th with a good boy, achchhl 
good larki a good girl. 

Adjectives of Arabic and Persian origin, ending with 
d or ah, particularly compound words, are not inflect* 
ed ; as, p&rsa aurat a chaste woman, shayistah miz&j hk 

' L w^- f ^f^ good disposition. 

^itk^xnaJi ^luor rpjj^ following are some of the principal common ones 

which follow this rule ; viz. those ending with sd and 
dnah, together with judi separate, r&ndah rejected, s&dah 
plain, i^mdah exalted, gandah fetid, mandah tired, kho- 
rindah gluttonous, sharmindah ashamed, alihidah separ- 
ate, kaminah mean, bech^rah helpless, nak&rah bad^ 
nadidah not seen, kar&niz^ah base bom, ek s&lah annual, 
do sitlah biennial. 

In Persian words, if the adjective follows the noun, 
according to the idiom of that language*, e is added 
to the noun ; as, marde nek a good man. 

If adjectives, ending with a vowel, are separated from 
the noun which they qualify, and united with the verb, 
they undergo no change; as uske munU ko kklk karo 
blacken his face. 

* In this instance, the construction of the adjective and noun is the 
came as of two nouns — see page 16.

go any change,; as, p&k ^mi a pure man^ p&k aur«it 
a pure womaUf p£tk cbiz a pure thing. 

There are a few adjectives of Arabic origin which 
form their femininesby ah; as, k4mil m. k&milah F.per^ 
ftci^ ^haffi'f M. khaffi'fah f. contemptible. 

Adjectives do sometimes, but very seldom, take t he 
floral form ; they never admit of the cases being add- 
ed, unless they are used substantively, or after the sub- 
stantive ; as, r&ten bh&re&Q heavy nights^ baghair kirdar 
nek ke without virtuous conduct, unhon ne us ko fkidah 
tam4m se baz rdkhk they deprived him of all the advan-- 
tage. 

If an adjective qualifies two or more nouns of the 
masculine and feminine gender, it is used in the mas- 
culine form ; but if the nouns are the names of inani- 
mate things, it generally agrees with that to which it 
stands nearest; as, usne bete beti ko mult dekhkar 
kah4 he seeing his son and daughter dead, said, &c. 
kapre bitsanaur kitliben bahut achchhi haio the clothes, 
plates, and books are very good. 

I'he adjectives are simple in their government ; 
those which retjuire of or to after them in English, for 
the most part govern the possessive case ; and those 
which require with or &y, the ablative, and most others 
the locative ; as, qatl ke l&iq worthy of death ; misl 
dary& ke like or like to a river ; \aiki se rk^ pleased 
with war ; aditlat semulzim convicted or condemned by 
the court ; aqlmandi meg sab se ziyluJah greater than 
all in wisdom ; mashwarat men Aknk wise in counsel.

22 HlNDUSTA^Nl^ GRAMMAR. 

(2) In Hindustani, adjectives do not admit of com- 
parison hy any regular inflections; the comparative 
degree is expressed by the ablative case of the noun, 
&c. and the superlative bj prefixing another word to 
the adjective ; as, sulh jang se behtar hai peace is bet^ 
ter than war; yih sab se kharkb hai this is worse than all; 
bara kharab larka a very bad boy ; nihayat buri jaghah 
a very bad place. 

The Persian comparative formed by affixing tar, and 
the Arabic by prefixing a, are frequently used ; as^ 
badtar worse, behtar better, buxurgtar greater ; azlani 
more unjust, ahsan more virtuous. 

llie word is sometimes doubled to express the su-- 
perlative degree ; as, achchhit achchh& very good ; but 
the words most commonly used for this purpose are 
aur more, bprk great, bahut much, had beyond bounds, 
ziy&dah more, nih&yat extremely, sa most, very. 

The particle sa is frequently used to express com- 
parison or intensity, and when so used, is inflected like 
adjectives ending withd; as, attkr s&hotu aur luharon 
ki bhatti sk naho be like perfume, and not like the fur" 
naceof the blacksmith ; thorask p&ni leao bring a little 
wateVyM^nt se hathyar wahan the there were many 
arms there. 

When the comparison made by «a alludes to one 
thing out of many, it governs the possessive case ; as, 
tumhar^ bhi unhi ka sa jism hai you have a body like 
theirs; usk& sk ad mi ham ne nahin dekha we never saw 
a man like him. 

(3) Numerical adjectives are not inflected ; as, b&rah 
^dmi twelve men, barah admi ke sath with twelve men. 



ADJECTITES. 23 

The ordinals are formed from the cardinals* after 
four, bj adding wdn to them ; as, pahl^ firsts dusra 
second, tisra third, chautba Jourth, pknchwkn^fth, 
chhath^ or chat^an sixth, sathwan seventh, kthwkn 
eighth, nuwan ninth, dasw^n tenth, &c. When these 
words qualify nouns of the feminine gender, the dn i s 
c hanged into in, as panchwan m. panchwin f. 

The aggregate or collective numbers used are gan- 
dah a four, gahi ajive^ bisia score, chalisi a forty, sai- 
kar& a hundred, hazkr a thousand, lakh a hundred thou^ 
sand, karor ten million. These are often used in the 
plural form, while the noun connected with them is in 
the singular ; as, wuh hazaron jan kandani se halak 
Yxdk he perished with a thousand agonies. 

Fractional numbers are expressed by pao a quarter, 
adha a half, pawn three-quarters, saw& one and a quar^ 
ter, derh one and a half, arh&i two and a half In com- 
pounds, saw& adds one quarter to the number, sarhe 
one half\ pawne decreases one quarter \ as saw& tin 3|-, 
s4rhe tin 3^, pawne charSf , &c. 

Distributives are formed by doubling the number ; 
as, do do two hy two. 

A doubtful numb er is expressed by adding ek to th e 
numeral ; as, ad mi das ek about tenim 



To signify /o/c/, chand or guna are added to nume- 
rals ; as, do chand two-fold, das gunlt tenfold. 

Figures are expressed by the following signs : | 1,

Un ne, unhon ne by them. 
Unko, unhen them, to them* 
Un Be from them. 
Un meg in them. 



PRONOUNg. 25 

When an inferior speaks of himself^ instead of maig 
/, the first personal pronoun, he uses some such word 
as, ghul&m slave, bandah servant, kjiz poor creature, &c. 
and when he addresses his superior, instead of the se- 
cond personal pronoun, he uses some such term as, 
&4hib master, khud&wand lord, ha^rat worship: as, 
ghulam h^ir hai, s&hib kk hukm kyk hai the slave is 
present, what are the master^s orders ? In like manner, 
when one friend addresses another in respectful terms, 
he uses instead of the first personal pronoun, the words 
dostd&r your friend, or JjfLhair-khwith your well-wisher^ 
or some such epithet. 

The pronoun tu thou, when used in addresses to 
God, is considered respectful ; but when applied to 
men, it is generallj reckoned disrespectful. 

No distinction is made in the third person wuh he, 
on account of gender; but in this respect it corre- 
sponds with the first and second persons. The language 
has but two genders, and all the personal pronouns 
may be masculine or feminine. 

The plural number of all the pronouns is frequently 
used instead of the singular, much in the same man- 
ner as you is in English. When A or hon is added 
in the oblique cases, the word must be understood 
as having a plural meaning; as, tumh se or tumhoii 
se from you. Log people, is used with the pronouns 
in conversation, to distinguish the real from the 
apparent plural ; as ham log we, tum log you, we log 
they. 



26 HINDUSTANI GRAMMAR. 

The cases of the pronouns are used in the same way 
as those of the nouns* ; tujhe, mujhe, and us, with their 
plurals turn, ham and un are often employed instead of 
their possessive cases, and often like adjectives ; as, 
mujh par on me, tujh.kane near youy us makan men in 
that place^ &c. 

The honorific pronoun £tp selfy thysdf, &c. is com- 
monly adopted instead of the second personal pronoun 
to express respect, and is thus declined : 

N. Ap self. 

G. Ap ka, ke, Id of self. 

I. Ap ne by self. 

O. Ap ko self to self 

A. Ap sefrom self 

L. Ap men in self 

The word dp is often employed emphatically with 
the other pronouns ; as, main kp 1 myself, tu ap thou 
thyself. The Persian word khdd self is used in like 
manner. 

The pronoun dp with as added to it, in the locative 
case, is used in a plural and reciprocal sense ; as, kpas 
men among themselves. We ^pas men qaziyah karte 
hain they are quarrelling among themselves. 

(2) Relative Pronouns. 

The relative pronoun in Hindustani is generally 
attended with its corresponding relative, which isthence 
called the correlative. 



* See Section IV. of the Nouns.

Tin ko them, to them. 


A. 


Tis sefrom him. 


Tin sefrom them. 


L. 


Tis men in him. 


Tin men in them. 



In English the correlative stands firsts and the rela* 
five immediately follows; as, he who, that which : in 
Hindustani it is just the opposite ; the relative generally 
stands in the former part of the sentence, and the cor- 
relative in the latter ; as, jo bad kam karegit so saz4 
pawega who does evil, he will suffer, i. e. he who does 
evil will suffer ; &khir jo main andeshah kart& thk so \i\ik 
at length which I suspected that happened, i. e. at 
length that which I suspected happened. 

The above, which is the regular order, may be, and 
frequently is, inverted, and the personal pronoun used 
instead of the correlative ; as, Aknk wuh hai jo larai 
se parhez kare; or, jo lar^ se parhez kare wuh dana 

hai he is a wise man who abstains from war. 

s 



98. HIMDUSTiCNt GRAMMAR. 

The relative, like the personal pronouns, are often 
used adjectively, as in this sentence ; jis kdmi ko wuh 
piy&r kart& bai use kuchh degit he will give something 
to the man whom he loves. 

The relative and correlative are sometimes coni'* 
pounded ; as, jis tisne kaha hai whosoever has said fit J ; 
jis kk tis kk bai whose soever (it J is. 

(3) Interrogative Pronouns. 
The interrogative pronouns are two: kaun whoj and 
ky^ which or what? The former is applied chiefly to 
persons, and the latter to things. 

Kaun Who? 

Singular. 
N. Eaun who. 
G. Eis ka, ke, ki whose. 



I. Eis ne by whom. 
O. Eis ko, kise to whom. 
A. Eis wfrnm whom. 
Jj. Eis men in whom. 



Plural. 
Eaun who. 
Ein k&, ke, ki whose. 
Kin ne, kinhon ne by whom. 
Ein ko, kenhen to whom. 
Ein sefrom whom. 
Einme^m whom. 



Ky k Which or What? 

N. & O. Ey&, which or what t 
G. Eahe ka, ke, ki of what f 
jy. Eahe ko to or for what 9 
A. Eahe sefrom what 9 
L. E&he men in what f 

In negative sentences, the interrogative is substitut- 
ed for the relative, as in this example ; wuh kaun hai 
ham nabin j^nte baiji we know not who he is. 

Kaun when usedadjectively may be applied to things, 
and kySt as an exclamation may be applied to persons ; 
as, turn kis chiz ko ch&hte ho what thing do you want ? 
ky& chor what a thief! 



PRONOUNS. 39 

Kyk is sometimes used as a conjunction ; as, kyk Hindu 
kja Musalm&n whether Hindu or Musalmdn; kyk 
hkgh kyk khet me]i whether in the garden or thejield. 
The compounds formed by the interrogative pro- 
nouns are, aur kaun who else ? aur kyk what else f kaun 
sa what^ and kiskis which ? expressive of variety or 
number. 

(4) Adjective Pronouns. 

These are of three kinds : the possessive* the demon- 
strati ve, and the indefinite. 

The Possbssiyk. 

The possessive apnit my, thtfy his, her, our, your, 
their, is inflected like an adjective ending in d, and is 
always substituted for the possessive cases of the pro- 
nouns, when they refer to the same person as the nom. 
or inst. case of the verb ; as, Khud& ne apne faf I aur 
ihsan se ham ko h^nkyk. God of his own goodness and 
kindness created us. If a different person is intended, 
the possessive cases are used ; as, usne unkk kam kiy& 
he did their work. 

ThS DEMONSTBATiyB, 

These are yih this and wuh that. 

Yih This. 





Singular. 


Plural- 


N. 


Yih this. 


Ye these. 


G. 


Is ka, ke,kiofthis. 


In ki, ke, ki of these. 


I. 


Is ne by this. 


In ne, inhoQ ne by these. 


O. 


Is ko, ise this, to this. 


In ko, inhen these, to these. 


A. 


Is se from this. 


In se from these. i 


I.. 


Is men in this. 


In men in these.

1 
1 



30 HINDUSTifNt GRAMMAR. 

Wub thatf is inflected the same when a demonstra- 
tive as when a personal pronoun*. 

As adjective pronouns, yih and wuh agree in number 
with their substantives; thus, yih bat this word, ye 
baten these words, wuh he\k that son. ^weheie those sons. 

Sometimes the singular is applied to an Arabic 
plural ; as, yih atwar these customs. 

In the oblique cases is and us are adopted for the 

singular, and in and un for the plural : is jahan men 

in this world, us jahan men in that world, or a future 

state, in kamon se front these works, un kamon se 

front those works. 

Yih this, and wuh that, are often used objectively 
without the addition of the objective case ; as^ yih 
karo do this, jo kuchh turn mangoge^ main wuhi kar- 
ung& whatever you a^k that I will do. If these sentences 
are taken elliptically, the pronouns may be considered 
as used adjectively, some such word as kdm or chiz 
being understood ; as, yih k4m karo do this work, jo 
kuchh chiz whatever thing, &c. 

The Indefinite. 

The indefinite pronouns are ek one; dusr& another, 
dono or donon both; ^uv other; (more;) ghair other 
(different); baze certain; bahut many; ^nh all ; har 
each; falanah a certain one; kai some, many ; koi any 
one, some one; kuchh an^ thing, something ; kitna or 
kitt& how many ? jitn& or jitta a^ many ; itna or ixtk 
so many. They are all regular in their inflections,

G. Kisu ka, ke, ki of something* 
I. Kisu ne by something. 
O. Kisd ko something. 
A. Kisu sefrom something^ 
L. Kisd men in something. 

When not used adjectively, koi is generally applied 
to persons and kuchh to things; as, koi hai is any one 
(there) ? kuchh mat karo don^t do any thing. When 
used adjectivelj, the application is indefinite ; as, jih 
kisi kam kit hai is this of any work or use ? wuh kuchh 
kam ka hai is that of some work or use ? ek one is often 
put after dusra another^ to express opposition of idea, 
and connected with it to express reciprocity ; as, ek to 
khiita hai dusra pit& hai the one indeed is eating and the 
other is drinking ; turn kyun ek dusre se qa^iyah karte 
ho why are you quarrelling with one another ? 

The compound adjective pronouns of the indefinite 
kind are ek aur, aur ek or dusr& ek another^ ek koi some 



^

forms ; as, n. jo koi p. jis kisi ka, &c. n. jo kucbh 
p. jis kisa k^^ &g* 



OP VERBS. 33 

CHAPTER V* 

OF VERBS. 

Verbs are of two kinds, transitive and intransitive^ 
or^ as they are commonly called, active and neuter. 
They are all, with scarcely any exceptions, perfectly 
regular, and therefore need no further subdivision. 

As in English to is prefixed to the verb in the in- 
finitive mood, so in Hindustani nd is affixed^ but 
does not form a constituent part of the root ; the word 
divested of this affix, is to be considered as the root. 
Thus the root of jank to go^ is j& ; of honk to he^ ho ; of 
karn& to do, kar ; and of mkrnk to beat, m&r, &c. 

To verbs belong conjugation, voice^ moodj tense^ 
gender, number, and person. 

There is only one conjugation, and every transitive 
verb may be conjugated after the example of m&rn4 
to beat. 

There are two voices, the active and the passive. 

The moods are five, the indicative, the imperative, 
the potential, the subjunctive^ and the infinitive. 

The tenses tire seven, the present, the present defi- 
nite, the imperfect, the perfect, the perfect definite, the 
pluperfect, and the future. 

The genders of verbs, like those of nouns, are twoj 
the masculine and the feminine. The masculine sin- 
gular is formed by d, and the feminine by i ; the mas- 
culine plural by e, and the feminine by in or idn. 
Any other termination may be masculine or feminine ; 
thus, wuh hai may mean he is or she is. When two or 
more feminine plurals occur in sfuccesifrion, the terminal 



34 HINDUSTANI GRAMMAR. 

tion n is most frequently applied only to the last 5 as, 
we m&re j^te hain they are being beaten^ instead of we 

mare j^ten bain. 

The numbers of verbs are two, the singular and the 
plural, and in each number there are three persons, 
corresponding with the personal pronouns. 

When one verb is employed to assist in the conjuga- 
tion of another, it is called an auxiliary j the words 
employed for this purpose are thawa*, hona/o be.^knk 
to go J and karn^ to do. 

Thk WaSy is thus inflected : 



Singular. 

1. Main tha / tvaa. 

2. Tu tha thx>u wast. 

3. Wuh tha he was. 



Plural. 

1. Ham the we were. 

2. Turn the you were. 

3. We the they were.

gated in the following manner :

Intransitives, when used in the passive voice, are 
conjugated in the same manner as mkrk }knk to he beai^ 
en. When, j&na to go^ is applied to the root of the 
verb, and not to the past participle, it has an active 
signification ; as, wuh ham ko mar ]k\k hai he is beat^ 
ing us* 



OF THE MOODS, TENSES, AND CONSTRUC 

TION OF THE VERBS. 

The moods and tenses of all regular verbs are form- 
ed in the same manner as those of mkrnk to beat. There 
are very few verbs irregular, and those only in the 
perfect tense and its formatives : jknk to go^ makes 
perfect gay& ; karn4 to do^ makes kiy4 ; marn& to diej 
makes vadk ; and bon^ to be^ makes h6a ; which being 
excepted, all verbs may be considered as perfectly 
regular* 

The indicative mood, as in English, simply declares 
a thing, or asks a question ; as, tu xxkkrik hai thou art 
beatingy or art thou beating ? The tone of the voice 
determines whether it is interrogative or not. 

I'he present tense of the indicative mood is employ- 
ed to express the act in a general sense, without spe- 
cial regard to any particular time ; as, sunnit bihtar 
hai kahne se to hear is (at any time) better than to 
speak. 



OF VERBS. 41) 

The present definite is generally used to express the 
precise point of time when the action takes place ; it 
is sometimes used with an indefinite and future signi- 
fication ; as, wuh ghar jktk hai he is (now) going home ; 
main jald kh&n^ l&ta hun / am bringing (shall bring) 
the dinner quickly. 

The imperfect tense represents the action as taking 
place at a particular time past ; as, sab us ke farm&n bar- 
Akr the all were (then) obedient to him. 

To prevent mistakes in the use of th& wa^^ and h6& was^ 
which are generally translated by the same word into 
£nglish/and which in many cases appear to be synony- 
mous in their application, it is necessary to pay parti- 
cular attention to the following rule ; thd is used in 
reference to simple existence at a distant time or parti- 
cular place, while hu& is applied to time or circum- 
stances less remote in the sense oi become; as, us mulk 
roen ek p&dsh&h th& there was a king in that country ; 
wuh hairan hiia he was (became) confounded. 

The perfect is like the past tense in English when 
applied indefinitely ; as, tum ne Mkhkyou wrote^ which 
though indefinite as to time^ conveys the idea of a com-* 
plete or perfect action. 

The perfect^ in addition to its common acceptation, 
is sometimes used with a present, and sometimes with 
a future meaning ; as, jo wuh mill, to hami^ri jan rahi ; 
nahin, to gayl if she is founds then my life remains; if 
not, then it is gone. Jo hojk so kk^ what he sows that 
he reaps. Pkni lao bring the water. Lkyk khud&wand / 
have brought it^ sir, (meaning / will bring it immedi- 
ately). 



50 HINDUSTAN? GRAMMAR. 

It h sometimes applied in an idiomatical mannet ; 
as^ hfik to h6& if it be so, why he it so. 
^^ii' Monosyllables ending in ^ or o take y before tlie 
>^^ ^ n of the perfec t, and change it to e before any- 
other vowels ; as, \kok to bring; perfect singular \kyk; 
\ fem. l&e. Bon& to sow; perf. sing, boy It ; plu. boe ; 
fern. boL 

Dissyllables having a consonant before n£t, and a 
penultimate short vowel followed by a, drop the 
a when the d of the perfect or any vowel follows ; as, 
]ipatQ& to cling to; perf* lipta. Samajhnii to under^ 
stand; perf. samjha ; fut. samjheg&. 

The perfect definite answers to the perfect tense in 
English ; but is sometimes used with adverbs of time iu 
a manner that it cannot be in English ; as, main ne 
\Aikjk h4i 1 have eaten; maiQ kal wah&Q gay& h6n / 
have gone there yesterday ^ for 1 went there yesterday. 

The pluperfect tense corresponds with the pluper- 
fect in English, and represents a thing not only a^ 
past, but as prior to some other event; as, us ke 
pahunchne ke iige main ne jkhat likhk ihklhad written 
my letter before he arrived. 

The future dejinitey or, as it is called by Gramma* 
rians, the Pau1o-post*futurum, is expressed by chlthn4 
to desire, with the past participle of the verb ; as^ wuh 
mar& ch&ht4 hai he is about to die, or will soon die. 
There are also other ways of expressing the same idea; 
as, wuh marne par hai, or wuh marne wallt hai. 

Rftots ending in a or o lake or omit we in the 
future; as, j&n& to go, fut. jligit, j&weg&. Hona to be^ 
fut. hog&, howeg&, hoega. The e of the roots de nk 



OF VERBS. 51 

tind leiA is dropped before uj as d6ng& I will give, 
16ng^ / will take. 

The imperative mood is confined in its application 
chiefly to the second persons singular and plural. The 
honorific form is often used impersonally ; as, chup 
rah be silent, idhar ko come hither, ham ko muaf kijye 
pardon me. 

The adverb mat is applicable to the imperative mood 
alone, naor nah is applied to it in common with the 
other modes, nahin is never used with it; as mat bhu« 
lyo, or bhulyo mat don^t forget, aisa na kar don^tdo so. 

The imperative mood is sometimes used idioma« 
tically, as in the following expressions : ho to ho per^ 
haps it is, or it must be, ko to ao come if you mean ta 
come, na kh& to mat kh& donU eat if you don^t like. 

The potential mood implies possibility, liberty, or 
obligation ; as &j jo kuchh ho sake wuhi karo whatever 
it is possible to do to^ay, that do ; hamen ummed hai kih 
yih k^m sararvj&m howe our hope is that this business may 
be brought to a conclusion ; jo badsh&h elchi kisi jagah 
bheje ch^hye kih wuh apne qaum men sab se dknk &ur 
zab^n&war ho if a king sends an ambassador to any 
place, it is desirable that he should be the wisest and the 
most eloquent man of his race. 

The c oni unctions kih and t&kih that, agar and jo if ^ 
agarcbih although, jab tak unttl, and mabad& lest, gene^ 
rally require the potential mood after them ; as, agar 
inais ch&hun kih jab tak main k&n wuh thahre to 
tujhe kya if I desire that he should stay till I come, 
what is it to thee? 

When the power of doing a thing is designed to be 
expressed, the verb sakna to be able, is used in all its 



5S HTNDUSTiCNY GRAMMAR. 

parts, with the root or infinitiTe mood of the principal 
verb ; as, wuh jk nahin sakt& bai, or wuh j&ne nabin 
saktit bai he cannot go. 

Obligation^ or necessity is co mmonly expressed by 
i/e in stead of the regular e of the potential mood ; as, 
tumko wah&n jknk chahye you must go there ; is rki 
makhfi ko kisi Aknk se kahye one for we J must tell this 
profound secret to some wise man. 

The verb bon4 to be, and other intransitive verbs, are 
also employed to express the same idea; as, turn ko 
jknk hai must you go ? turn ko j^na hogit you must 
gOj tum ko likhne hog& you must write, tu'm se likh& 
jaega must you write. ^ 

The future tense may be used definitely or indefi- 
nitely with respect to time, and it admits of no dis- 
tinction for shall ^nd will; as, wuh kwegk he will come, 
ham kal j&wenge we shall go to-morrow. 

In respectful language the future is often employ- 
ed instead of the imperative mood ; it is also occasion- 
ally employed for the potential mood ; as, s^hib in&yat 
karke mujhe ek kitab deng^have the kindness. Sir, to 
give me a book. Main samajht4 h6n kih jo kuchh we 
kahte hain hasad se hogk 1 am thinking that what they 
say may be from envy. 

The second future, or future completive, is formed 
by connecting the word chukn& to finish, with the root 
of the verb ; as, mk\n kh& chuk6nga I shall have eaten.' 
Wuh Wik chukegit he will have eaten, Sfc. 

When a future act is designed to be expressed doubt- 
fully, the present participle of the verb is used with 



OF VBABS. 53 

the future tense or potential mood of the verb to be; as, 
main mltrl^ hiing^ or hun perhaps I may beat. 

A more distant future of the same nature is express- 
ed by the perfect participle with the verb to be ; as, 
main mara gaja hiing4 or huQ perhaps I shall have 
been beaten. 

The subjunctive mood, as in English, represents a 
thing under a condition or supposition; it is in form 
the same as the present tense of the indicative mood, 
but is distinguished from it in being generally preced- 
ed bj agar or jo i/*, and followed by to then; as, 
agar wuh at&, to kuchh nuqs&n nah botit if he had com€,i\\>^3£^ 
then there would have been no loss; jo maig kaht& 
to meri bat na suntk if I had spoken he would not 
have regarded^ or if I should speak he would not regard. 

The conjunction is frequently omitted in the former 
or latter part of the sentence, and sometimes in both ; 
as, agar main jat& to use ^h6b marta, or main jat4 to 
use ^b6b marta had I gone I would have beaten him 
spundlff ; main hot& ghor& chhutne na ^ktk had I been 
present the horse would not have escaped. 

1 o express the subjunctive mood in a more remote 
manner, the past participle of the principal verb is 
used with the subjunctive form of the verb to be; as, 
agar main ne pinjr& khola hoik, wuh ur na jktk ? if 
I had opened the cage^ would it not have flown ? The 
other forms of the subjunctive are the same as the in 
dicative ; as in these examples : jo main piicbht^ th& wuh 
jaw&b det& th& had I asked^ he would have answered; 
agar main p6chh6ngli to wuh jawab degk if I ask^ he 
will answer. 



54 HINDUSTANt GRAMMAR. 

The infinitive mood is employed to express a thing 
in an unlimited manner, without any particular refer* 
ence to number, person, or time; as, main bolne 
nahin $akt& I cannot say; we sbor karne lage they be^ 
gan to make a noise. 

When the infinitive is applied as a nominative case, 
nd is used ; when it is governed by another word, ne; and 
often when it governs a feminine noun, ni ; as, sunnlfc 
nahin misl dekhne ki hearing is not like seeing, haai 
ko jane do permit us to go, nashtar par ungli rakhni 
mashkil hai it is hard to put one's Jinger on a lancet. 

The infinitive is often used elliptically for the im- 
perative ; as, hargiz qasm na kh&n^ swear not at all. 
Wah&n mat jan& donH go there, or you must not go 
there, (understand hoga). 

The infinitive is also frequently employed as a ver- 
bal noun ; and with ira, ko, &c. added as a gerund i 
thus, uskk jkn& munasib hm his departure is proper ; 
intiq&m lene k& yihi waqt \m this is the time of or for 
a I L> ^^^^S r^^^^g^9 wuh ghar dekhne ko kjk or wuh ghar 
tpc <^f^()[^ekhne ke w&ste kyk he has come to seethe house. 
i^y^^/^ The pre sent and perfect participles , when they 
^^^[^ allude to time, agree in gender with t he noun whic h 
the y quali^ ; but when they are employed to descri be 
^ the state of the agent or object of the verb , t hey are 
i^J. (It. used only in the inflected form ; as, chir&gh jalta rahli 
"^^"^^ the lamp remained burning ; wuh j^ti rahi she remained 
^iA)^i> or continued going ; we rang barang ki posh&ken pahne 
i^Jv^ h6e n&chti thin they having put on various coloured 
garments, were dancing ; main ne ghore par saw4r bote 
usko dekha / saw him mounted on a horse. 



OP VERBS. a 

The present participle is doubled, to express the 
€X>iitinuation or frequency of the act ; as, hamara 
k&m hote hote nah h6k our work being and being tva9 
notj i. e. continuing to be done was not completed. 

The present and perfect participles connected with 
other words are often applied adverbially ; as, subah 
bote when it w€is morning ; sh&m hote when it was even- Sp'^'- 
ing ; mere rahte while I remain; jinke dekhe at the c^^ 
sight of whom ; hmk samjhe without understanding ; c/L^ 1^ 
dete waqt at the time of giving. "^^ ^^iUZ 

The past indefinite participle, by connecting the 
members of a sentence, saves the use of conjunctions ; 
it commonly agrees with the agent, sometimes with the 
object of the verb ; as, 4j wah&n j&kar ham&ri kit4b. 
lekar phir &o going there to^ay^ and bringing my book^ 
return ; is kkm men jaldi karke mujhe yih pashemlmi 
b6i hai this disgrace has come upon me (through) makm 
ing haste in this business. 

We shall close these observations with a few general 
rules on the concord and government of the verbs. 

A verb must agree with its nominative case in 
gender, number, and person ; as^ wuh kahta hai he is 
speakingy yih khabar pahunchi hai this news has arrived, 
we gae hain they have gone. 

When several nouns of different genders occur in a 
sentence, the verb takes the masculine plural in pre* 
ference to the feminine ; as, uske m& b&p bhai tinos 
uski shkdi ki fikr men the his father, mother, and bror^ 
ther were all three meditating the accomplishment of his 
marriage; uske h^hi, 6nt, gari \kde jkte haig hisele^ 
phant, camel, and carriage are loaded. 



56 HINDUSTiCNt GRAMMAR. 

Two nouns in the singular number^ coupled by a 
copulative conjunction, take a verb in the singular 
number agreeing with the one to which it stands near- 
est ; as^abhi bail aur ghori pahuncha hai the bullock and 
horse have just now arrived; klfhir k&r fareb ka zillat o 
rusnai hai the end of deceit is ruin and infamy, 

A number of inanimate things, taken collectively, 
may have a singular verb, whilst one rational being 
spoken of with respect may have a plural; as, usne 
sau riipiyah diyk by him a hundred rupees were given ; 
kp kah&n tashrif lej&te ha in where are you going? 
hkdshkh yih denge the king will give this; munasib 
nahie kih jahkn panlth kjiii karen it is not proper that 
your majesty should submit. •^ 

Sometimes a verb singular agrees with an infinitive 
mood or member of a sentence for its nominative case ; 
as in the following example: dunyli ke witste bahut mih« 
nat karnk filw&qi ziy&dah daurnit hai na chiz par to do 
much for this world is in fact much-ado about nothing. 

Sometimes a verb plural is used without a nomina« 
tive case, some such word as they or men being un- 
derstood ; as in this example : ek talw^r se saikron ko 
mkrte hain men kill thousands with one sword. ^ 

W hen two different persons occur in a sentence, the 
verb agrees with the first person in preference to the 
second, and with the second in preference to the third ; 
as, ham turn j^wenge we and you will go j turn we 
j&oge you and they will go. 

In quoting any phrase, or relating any circumstance, 
the pronouns are not changed, as in Englisli, but are 
given as they were stated or spoken at the time; as^ usne 



OF VBRB8. A 7 

kah&, kih main nah jhAngk, he saidi ^ I will not go.* 
In English it would be, he said he would not go^ 

In negative sentences the nominative case commonly 
a|orrees with the verb understood; as, zulm teri sh&n Ice Ab 
l&iq nahin cruelty (is) not becoming your dignity. 

The verb to he^ and verbs of naming or calling, may 
have two nominative cases before them ; as, wuh sard&r 
hai, he is the chief , wuh Sikandar kahl&t& hai, he is called 
Alexander. 

Active or transitive verbs govern the objective case ; 
aSy usko mere p&s llto, bring him to me ; main usko 
tarbiyat kardnga, / will educate him. The preposition 
tain with the genitive is often used in conversation 
after active verbs instead of the objective case; as, us- 
ke mush ke tain dekho, see his face. The genitive too 
without the preposition is often used instead of the 
objective before a compound verb; as, is b&t ki yad rakbo 
remember this word. 

Causal verbs, verbs of clothing, givinjif, &c. may be 
considered as governing two accusative cases, or the 
accusative and the dative^ both being alike ; as, larke- 
ko khknkkhilkk^iT ghnr jko^ having given the child food 
go home; use yih kapr& pahn&o, put on him these clothes; 
usko ek rupiyah do, give him a rupee. 

Some neuter verbs, as knk to come^ bann& to become^ 
to Jit^ \A\kxkk to suity parna /oy<i//,'pahunchn& to arrive, 
phabnii to become, ch^hnlt to be desirable, rahn& to re* 
main^ sdjhn& to appear, lagna to unite, milna to meet, 
and honk to be, govern the dative case, and are fre- 
quently used impersonally; as, mujhe rahm ktk hai, 
/ feel compassion; mujhe is blit mcQ shubhah hai, / 



A8 HINDUSTitNt GRAMMAR. 

have some doubt in this matter; hamko chlthye kih wa- 
hkn jiwen, it is desirable that we should go there. 

Verbs meaning to sell or implying gain have hkth 
f hand J connected with them; as, tumne kiske hkih 
becha hai, to whom have you sold it? Wuh kkm bahut 
mihnat se hkih kjk, that point was gained with great 
difficulty: us kk ek ph61 tolifah hkth kyk he gained a 
Jlower as his prize. 

Verbs which in English require with^ ffomy or by^ 
after them, govern the ablative, and those which require 
in^ within^ into, the locative case; as, bihtar jih hai, 
kih uski dosti ke wasile se dushmanoQ ke h&th se 
chh6t6n, this is better, that by means of his friendship I 
should escape from the hand of the enemies; wuh kpne 
ghar men j&kar dil men sochne lag^ going into his house 
he began to think within himself. 

Verbs of fear and caution require the ablative case; 
as, sh&yad wuh tum se dart& hai^ perhaps he is afraid 
of you.

Of Derivative and Compound Words. 

(1) Of Nouns. 

Derivative and compound nouns are principally 
those of agency, instrumentality^ and locality ; ver- 
bals, abstracts^ and diminutives. 

Nouns of Agency. 

These are formed by adding wdld or hdrd to the infi- 
nitive mood of verbs, or to nouns; as, lakarh^ra a 
wood'Cuiterj kh&new41a an eater, sunnewala a hearer. 

They are also formed by adding to nouns the fol- 
lowing terminations : _ ^ 

Ban to dar a door, darban udoor-keeper. /^ c^^ 

Baz to murgh a cock, murghbaz a cock-fghter. 

Bar to rah a road, rahbar a guide.

An as bd to roll, belan a rolling pin. 

Na as ram to play or sporty ramna a park. 

Ni as katar to clip^ katarni a pair of scissors. 

W as jhay to sweep^ jhiru a broom.

Abstracts. 



67 



Abstract nouns are formed chiefly from adjectives 
bj affixing some termination to them ; as, 



A to garm warm, 
Ta, ti <o kam little. 



garmi warm^weather. 
kamti deficiency. 



Pa, pan, or pan& to la; kd a cAtM, la^kapan childhood.

Gi /o tazah fresh^ 

N ^0 lincha At^A, 

I to bura 6ad, ^'Tj^^^^,, y 

Hat ^0 karwa frt^^er, \^ r ^^1^^^^^ bitterness. 

To nouns ^ is frequently added to form abstracts 
as, kdtui a man, adoiiyat humanity ; hukm a command^ 
hukumat dominion. 

• Some abstracts are formed by a repetition of the 
word^ i/vith a slight alteration in the last ; as, jhutb mfith 
falsehood. 

Verbals. 

Verbals are either the same as the verbal root ; as, 
bol speech, chkh desire, &c. ; or they are formed from it 
by adding other terminations ; as, 

kahi a saying. f 

bo&i a sowing, ^T ^ ^ 

milap a mimng or union 



A to kah speak, 
Ki to ho sow, 
A-p to mil miWf 
As to, pi drink.

Wat to saj& preparCf 
Ki to khel feed^ 
Hat to bali cally 



bhul&wa a deception. 
sajawat preparation. 
khelii a feeding. 
balahat a calling. 






The infinitives of the verbs are commonly employed 
as verbal nouns ; as, karnii a doings boln& a saying. 
Some are formed by doubling the perfect tense of the 
verb, and altering the last syllable ; as, kah&kabi alter^ 
cationj m&r&mari scuffle^ &c. 

Diminutives. 

These are formed from other nouns, by adding to 
them various terminations ; as, 



A to beti a daughter ^ 
j^f^Lr^*^^^ ^^ chah to deg a cauldron, 
tk^ ^jjL Ri to palang a bedstead, 
Ak to top a cannon,

baghichah a kitchen garden. 



(2) Of Adjectives. 

Derivative Adjectives are of two kinds, negative and 
positive. The negative ones are obtained, by prefix- 
ing to different words these terminations : 

An to bona to be, anhona impossible. 

Be to sabr patience, besabr impatient. 

Bad to nam a name, badnam infamotis. 

Ghair to hizir present, ghairhazir absent.

HINDUSTANF GBAMMAR. 



shah hexagimal^ &c. Wa$h and wdr are added to ex- 
press likeness ; as, barq wash like lightnings mard&nah 
w&r like brave men. 

In addition to the compounds included in the 
foregoing sections, there are various other compound 
nouns and adjectives, which are formed chieflj bj the 
union of two nouns, or of a noun and adjective ; as, 

Bamin aecurityj m&lz&min a bail* 

dan a container, qalamdin a pen ca9e. 

qatar a row, 'Jj shutarqat&r a camel 

' herd. 

b&til vain,

m&lmast pureeproud*

To compound nouns a participial adjective is some- 
times added^ and the word formed by it may be consi- 
dered as an adjective^ or as a denominative noun ; thus, 
mal mardam khor eating the property of another man, 
or one who borrows and never pays. 

(3) Of Verbs. 

Derivative verbs are formed from nouns, adjectives^ 
and other verbs ; as, 

,^ J HbUi^ argumentatumy h^UxBAxA to dispute* 

J/ "^ Thuk spittlcy thukni to spit. 

Samajh understanding^ samajhni to understand. 



HINDUftTANF GRAMMAR* 7l 

Tars fwerojr, r>^/^ tarasna to long ; to pity. 

Jurna to be joined^ jorna to join. 

Katna to he cutj kitni.to cut. 

Bandhna to be bounds bandhna to bind. 

The most useful class of derivatives are those deno- 
minated causals: they are formed by adding k to the 
verbal root ; as, 

fiolnd to speaks bolini to call. 

Dauina to run^ daurana to make run. 

Sunna to heavj sunnana to cause to hear. 

Chamakna to shine^ chamkana to make to glitter. 

Samajhna to understand, samjhina to cause to under* 

stand. 

Latakna to hang up, latkana, to make hang. 

Roots ending with a long vowel take Id and shorten 
the vowel ; as, 

* Ehana to eaty kh3&n& to feed. 

Dena to give, dilana to cause to give. 

Dhona to wash, dhul&na to make wash. 

llona to weep, rulaaa to make weep. 

Kabn4 to speak, makes kahl&n4/o he spoken or called. 

Sometimes Id is changed to a/, and in neuter verbs 
wd is occasionally inserted, to give the verb an addition* 
a! meanings as, pai^hni to enter, pai^h&lnii to cause to 
enter; jaln& to be /lo^, jal4n4 to 6Mrn, jalw&na to cause 

to burn. 

From the above examples it will readily be perceiv- 
ed, that monosyllables become dissyllables when made 
causals, and that dissyllables remain such by dropping 
the (0 or last vowel of the verbal root when d is added. 



72 HINDUSTifNY GRAMMAR. 

A is the in6exion most commonlj used in the formation 
of causal yerbs : Id and wd seem to be substituted 
chief! J for the sake of euphony. 

Compound verbs are of various kinds ; the follow- 
ing are the principal ones, ^hen the compound is 
formed^ onlj the last part of it admits of conjugation, 
and this is the same as in simple verbs. 

1. NOMINALS. 

These are formed by uniting with the verb a noun 
or adjective ; as, b4t karnk to converse^ mol len& to pur- 
chase, chbot4 karn& to shorten. Ex. U.sne babut hurk 
k&m kiy4 hai, he has done a very bad thing. 

3. Imtbnsitives. 
These are obtained by uniting one verb with the 
root of another ; as, khkjknkto eat up, hojknk to become, 
ixkkxAkhikto destroy totally, gir parna /oy*a// down. 
Ex. Wuh h^thi par se gir par& he fell from off the e/e- 
phant. 

3. Potentials. 

These are formed by adding saknk to be able, to a 
verbal root, or to the infinitive mood of the verb ; as, 
kh& sakn& or kh&ne sakn& to be able to eat, chal sakn& 
to be able to walk. Ex. Maig &j kuchh kh& nahifi sak- 
tk I cannot eat any thing to^ay. 

4. CoMPLETIVES. 

These add chukn& to be^nished, to ^ verbal root; as, 
khit chukna to finish eating, pi chukn4 to finish drinking, 
kah iAi\xkji\k to finish speaking. Ex« Wuh khitna kha 
chuk& bai, he has finished his dinner. 



BINDUSTifNt CKRAMMAR. 73. 

5. Desideratives. 

These are formed by adding the verb ch&hn& to desire^ 
to the past participle of another verb ; as, likhlt ch&hn& 
to wish to write, jkjk chahn&;/o desire togo^iMLrk chahnii, 
to desire to die. In compounds, Jay^ and mardare em- 
ployed, instead of the irregular forms gayd and miid. 
Ex. Wuh tumblire pas jaj4 chahta bai, A^ desires, oris 
upon the point of going to you. 

6. Frequentatives. 

These add karn£t to do, to the past participle of 
another verb, and generally signify the habit of doing 
a thing ; as, kyk karn&, to make a practice of coming, 
ja}& karn&, to make a practice of going, chauki kiylt 
karna, to make a practice of watching. Ex. Wuh hame- 
shah mere p&s kyk kart& hai, he is constantly coming to 
me. 

Sometimes another verbis employed instead of kar* 
nk to do ; as, is kam men |^hub tammul kiy& ch&hiye> we 
must think seriously on this subject, 

7. CONTINUATIVBS. 

These are formed by adding jan& to go and rahnli to 
remain, to the present particle of another verb ; as, ro« 
tkjknk, to continue weeping, parhtlt rahn&, to continue 
reading. Ex. j^ui*at qabrist&n men rotf j&ti thi, the 
woman was going to the burying^ground, weeping. 

8. Statisticals, 

These prefix the inflected form of the present partici- 
ple to another verb ; as, rote daurn&, to run weeping, 



74 HINDD&TAN? GRAMMAR. 

1. e. in a weeping condition. Ex. Wub warqon ko 
ultate j^ta bai, he is doing nothing but turning over the 
leaves. 

9. Reitkratites. 

These are a repetition of the same verb, with some 
trifling alteration in the last: they are an exception to 
the general rule, being conjugated alike in both parts; 
as, boln& ch&ln&, to converse, dekhna bhalna, to see. Ex. 
Wub apna hisab dekhta parht4 hai, he is examining 
his accounts. 

10. Double Compounds. 

These are formed bj adding to two verbal roots tbe 
verb karn& to do; as, khk pi karn&, to eat and drink. 
Ex. Wuh nah& dhokar kyk^ he having bathed and 
washed himself, came. 

What are called Inceptives» Permissives, Acquisi. 
tives, &c. are not properly compound verbs, since they 
consist regularly of two verbs, the one governed hy 
the other in the infinitive mood; as, sikhne laglt, he be^ 
gan to learn, jkue diy&, he gave permission to go^ jane 
p^ya, he obtained perrnission to go.

The Darvesh and the Confectioner. 

Naql hai, ki ek darvesh dana, jis ka (ariqah qina^t tha, bazar 
men gaya. Ek ^alwai ne, jo faqir ki chdshni se kuchh bahrah 
rakhta tha, us §ziz se iltmas ki, ki Ek dam meri dukan men 
thahare, ta apki nasihat amez baton se main faidahmand hon. 
Wuh mard i l^huda, shinas dil nawazi se, wahan baitha. Halwai 
ne ek tasht shahd se bharkar darvesh ke age rakhi. MakkhiydQ, 
jo taur un ka hai, ki mithai par jam% hoti hain, ekbargi us par 
girin ; b^ze kinare par baithiij, aur baze darmiyan men. Halwai 
ne chauri hilai, ta makkhiyon ko hanke, we jo kinare thin sahaj 
se up gayin ; aur we jo bich men thin, jab unhon ne chahd ki 
uren, shahd unke paron men lipat gaya, aur dam halakat men 
phansin. Darvesh is a^wal ko dekhkar khush hua, aur Khuda 
ke shukr men mustaghriq, jab ba^al aya ^alwai ne us se sabab 
khushi ka puchha. Us ne kaha, A\ bhai, main is tasht ko 
dunya, aur shahd ko dunya ki niamaten, aur makkhiyon ko, 
shikam parwar ni^mat khwaron ki manind samjha. Aur unheij 
jo tasht ke kinare baithin thin, mardan i azad, ki taqdir ke Ibiukra 
se dunya men ae, par is men ji na lagae, aur thoie par qinaat ki, 
aur dunya ko nachiz jdna : aur janiyo, ki jab chauri maut ki hile, 
jinhon ne apne dil ko thorasa us ke ishq men aludah kiya hai, 
we samjhen is bala ke dam se chhutenge. Aur jinhon ne tamam 
himmat apni dunya men sarf ki hai, aur us talkh mithas ne un

Naql bai^ki agle zamane men ek zalim tha ki gharibon ki lak-

kam detd, aur ap mahangi karke, daulatmandon ki sarkar men

afsanon se ranjidah na kar; aur kha^ hokar apne ghar gay a. 
Azbaski, mal-k&r zalimon ka achchha nahin hai. Qaza ilahi se,

Naql hai, ki agle zamane men, koi Badsh&h ek baz ko bahut 

piyar karta thi^ aur wuh hameshah B4dshah ke hath par baitha 

raht4 tha. Ek roz baz ko hath par baithakar shikar ko gaya ; 

ittifdqan, ek hiran samhne nazar aya. Bidshah ne kamal shauq 

se us ke pichhe ghora dala aur us ko pakra. Mulazimi dargah, 

agarchih piehhe lage ehale ate the, par koi Badsh&h talak na 

pahuncha tha. Is men Badshah piyasa hokar har taraf p4ni ki 

talash men ghora daurata tha. Akhir ek daman i koh menpahunch- 

kar dekha, ki pahar par se pani tapakta hai. Tarkash men se 

piyalah nikal niche rakha, ki qatre jo tapakte hain, us men jamu 

hon, aur piydlah bhar j&we. Jab piyalah bhar chuka, chaha ki pie, 

baz ne wunhin par mara, tamam pani gir gaya. Badshah ne is 

^arkat se khafa hokar phir piyale ko usi patthar ke niche rakha ; 

der ke bad, jab bhar chuka, chaha ki munh ko lagawe. Biz ne phir 

wahi ^arkat ki, aur us p&ni ko bhi gira diya ; Badshah ne kamal 

tishnagi ke sabab be taammul biz ko zamin par patak diya, 

aur wuh mar gay&. Is men rikibdar apahunchi, baz ko mua 

aur Badshah ko piy&sd pay a. Filfaur chhagal shikar band se 

khol, piy &Ie ko khub dhodhdkar, chaha ki Badshah ko pani piUwe. 

Us ne farmaya, ki mujhe is khalis pani se, jo pahar se jharta 

hai, kamal raghbat hui hai. Tu pahar par charh, aur is chashme 

se pini ka piyalah bharkar le i, kyunki, phir yih tab nahiu hai, 

ki jab talak piyale men qatrah, qatrah jama ho, main intizar 

karun. Rikabdir, jab chashme ke kinare pahuncha, dekhta

piyalah thande pani ka chhagal se bharkar Badshah ko diya, 

wuh piyalah munh se lagakar rone laga, aur rikabdar ko biz ke 

mijre se igih karke, apni jaldi aur iz^iribi par bahutsi nafiriu

ikhtiyar ki bag bad andesh nafs ke hath na de, ki tujhe Khuda

Bewaquf chor ne jaw4b diyi, Ki yahan ke r&is ke tawilemen ek

diya, Ki maig chor hun, aur chahta hun ki shahr ke riis

kar ghap ko le jaun. Kotwal ne hanskar kaha, Chof us ko kahiye, 
ki ek gadhe ke liye, jo mazbut bandha rahtd hai, aur kitne 
nigahbdn us par muqarrar hain, aur un shishon ke waste jo take

khatarnak kam, agar rae ke khazane chur^ne ke liye karta, to ek 
bat thi. Yih kahkar hath bandh pandit khane men bhejd. 

Dani chor ko al^maq chor ki baton se nasihat hui, aur kotwal

mere haq men nadin dost tha, aur kotwal dani dushraan. Ud 
dost ne bewaqufi se mujhe halak kiya tha, agar yih dana dush-

kuchh a|iyab nahin pahunchi hai, nahin jante ho, to aql ke nazdik 
turn m^zar ho ; lekin jiniyo, ki daulat punji nekoQ ki, aur 
wasilah khushiyon ka ho sakti hai. Dunyadar tin chiz ke 
khwahin hain; khush gufrani, jah ki taraqqi, Khud4 kiraza:

aur (lattal maqddr bad chizon se parhez kami. Pas, susti 
chhoro, aur kasb ki ^hwahish karo ; aur itni muddat se ham&re 
jo atwar dekhte ho un ko ^mal men lao. 

Bape bete ne kah4, Baba jan, &p to mujhe kasb ke liye farmate 
hain, par yih tawakkul ke khilaf hai. Main yaqin j&nta hun ki 
jo rozi mere liye muqarrar ho chuki hai, harchand us ki taldsh meg 
koshish na karun, tab bhi mujhe pahunchegi ; aur jo meri rozi 
nahin, us ki talash men kitnehi s^i karen kuchh faidah na karegi. 
Fas, jo chiz qismat men hai, turt milegi, aur jo nahin, so hargiz 
muyassar na hogi. Pas, jo chiz milne ki nahin, uske w&ste 
befaidah mi^nat na kiya chahiye, aur behudah ranj uske w&ste 
kyun ? Main ne kisi buzurg se suna hai, ki jo meri rozi tbi, us

nasib ki na thi, jis qadr ki us ki koshih ki, wuh mujh se pare

hone se bache, choron, batparon, ganth katton ke h&th us par

CHAPTER V. 

CONTROVERSY BETWEEN MEN AND ANIMALS, 
RESPECTING THEIR NATURAL RIGHTS. 



Pahli Fasl. 

The original state of Men and Animals^ and the beginning of 
the Controversy between them before the King of the Genii, 
in an Island where the Men had been shipwrecked. 

Likhne wale ne a|^wal ibtidae suhur bani adam ka yuQ likha 
h&i, ki jabtak ye thore the, hameshah haiwanoQ ke dar se bhagkar 
ffharon men chhipte, aur darindon ke khauf o khatar se (ilon 
8ur paharon men panah lete ; itni bhi, itminan na tha, ki do 
char idmi milkar kheti karen, aur khawen ; is ka kya |ikr ki 
kapra pahineg, aur badan ko chhipawen ? Gharai, phal, sag, 
pat jangal ka, jo kuchh pate khate, aur darakhton ke pattoQ 
se tan ko chhipate; jaron men garm jagah men rahte, aur 
garmiyon men, sar zamin sard ka rahna ikhtiyar karte. Jab us 
^alat meQ thori muddat gu|ri, aur aulad ki kagrat hui, tab to 
andeshah dam o dad ka, ki har ek ke ji men samaya tha, bilkul 
nikal gayi. Phir to bahut se qile, shahr, qare, nagar basakar, 
chain se rahne lage; zira^t ka saman rauhaiya kar, apne apne 
kar o bar men mashghul hue, aur haiwanon ko dam men giraftar 
karke sawari aur barbardari, zira^t, aur kisht-kari kd kam lene 
lage. Hathi, ghore, unt, gadhe, aur bahut se janwar, ki hameshah 
jangal biyaban men shutur i be-muhar phirte the, jahan ji 
chahta, achchha hara sabz^h dekkar charte, koi puchhne-wala 
na tha : so un ke kandhe, rit din ki mij^nat se, chhil gae ; pithog

se durdast jangaloi) men bhage. Tair bhi, apna baser& ehhor, 
bal bachchon ko sath le, in ke mulk se uranchhu ho gae. Har 
ek bashar ko yih |chiyal tha, ki sab {laiwdnat hamare ghulam 
hain, kis kis makar o ^ile se phande, aur jal bana bana un ke 
darpai iiue. Is d&rogir mea ek muddat gu|ri.

giraftar karke, badastor, apne karobar men mashghul hue.

Badshah ne haiwanon se kahd, Ab, tum is k& kya jawab dete

Badsbah ne Kalelah se kaha, ki Adam ki ibtidae khilqat ka

Hukm ilahi yih tha, ki Tamam darakht ke mewe khawen, magar

darind un ko nahin cbherte. Pas, agar darind turn se bibtar

Aur dusri dalil yib bai, ki tumbare jEalim Badsbabon ko, agar

mutaaiyin hain ; aur b^ze, ki kurah i zamahrir ki was^t men rahte 
bain, we jinuat aur guroh shayatin haig. Fas, agar turn ub 
i^halaiq ki kasrat ko daryaft karo, to m^luin ho, ki insan aur 
^aiw&n un ke muq&bale men kuchh wajiid nahin rakhte ; is waste 
ki kurah i zamahrir ki was^t darya aur khushki se dah chand hai, 
aur kurah i falk ki was^t bhi, kurah i zamahrir se das hisge ziyadah 
hai. Isi tarah kurah falk i qamar sab kuron se das hisge ziyadah 
hai ; gharaz, bar ek kurah fauqani ko, kurah ta^tani se, yihi nisbat 
hai, aur ye sab kure khalaiq rdf^ani se bhare hain ; ek balisht 
bhar jagah baqi nahin hai, ye arwa^ mujarradah waha^ rahte 
halQ. Fas, Ai insano, agar tum un ki ka§rat dekho, to malum 
karo, ki tumhara guroh unke age kuchh martabah nahin rakhta, 
aur tumhari kagrat o jamaiyat is par nahin dalalat karti, ki tum 
malik ho, aur sab tumhare ghulam ; kyunki, sab bande Alia ke, 
aur us ki fauj o rayat hain ; b^zon kei b^zon ke waste musakh- 
jkhar aur tabi kiya hai. Gharaz, jis t^^&^ us ne chaha, apni 
^ikmati bali^hah se un men a^kam intijsam ke jari kie ; bar jbial 
men us ka ]^amd o shukr hai. 

Hakim jinni jis waqt is kalam se farigh hua, Badshah ne 
insanon se ka^a, Jis chiz par tum apna fakhar karte ho, us ka 
jawab ^aiwanon ne diya, ab aur jo kuchh kahna baqi ho, use 
bay an karo. Khatib i hijazi ne kaha. Ham men aur bhi fazilatei) 
hain, jin se yih sabit hota hai, ki Ham malik aur Taiwan ghulam 
hain. Badshah ne kaha, unheij bayan karo^ 

Us ne kaha, AUat^la ne ham se bahut ni^maton ka w^dah kiya 
hai : qabar se nikalna ; tamam rue zamin par muntashar bona ; 
^isab qiyamat ; pul sarat par chalna ; bihisht men dakhil bona ; 
fardaus, jannat annaim, jannat khuld, jannat ^dan, jannat mawa, 
dar-us salam, dar-ul qarar, dar-ul maqam, dar-ul mattaqin ; da« 
rakht tuba, chashmah i salsabil, nahren sharab aur dudh, shahd 
aur p4ni se bhare howen ; makanat buland ; hdron ki mulaqat ; 
Khudi ka qurb : in ke siwa aur bahut si ni^mateij AUat^Ia ne 
hamare waste muqatrar ki hain, |;kaiwanon ko ye chizen kahag 
muyassar hain ? Yihi dalil hai, ki Ham malik aur Taiwan 
hamare ghulam hain. In ni^raaton aur faziiaton ke siwa, aur 
bhi buzurgiyoQ ham men haig, jin ko ham ne mazkur nahin kiya.

Tairou ke wakil hazar dastan ne kaha, Jis (arah turn se Allat&l& 
ne w^de nek kie hain, isi tarah tumhare azab ke waste wade bad 
bhi kie hain. Chunanchih azab i qabar, sawal i munkar o nakic, 
dahshat i roz qiyamat, shiddat (lisab, dozakh men dakhil bona ;

aj4b o aq&b hain. Aur ham un se bare hain, jaisa ham se w^dah 
gawab ka nahin kiy&, waisahi w^id ^ih ka bhi nahin kiyi. 
Khuda ke t^km se ham razi o shakir hain ; kisi f^l o ^arkat 
se ham ko na faidah hai, aur na nuqsan : pas, ham tum dah'l 
men barabar hain, tum ko fauqiyat ham par nahin. Hijazi ne 
kaha, Ham tum kyunkar barabar hain, kyunki ham bar hal men 
hameshah baqi rahenge ; agar Khuda ki ita^t ham ne ki hai, to 
ambya aur auliya ke sath rahenge aur un logon se suhbat rakbeij* 
ge. Jo ki said, ^akim, fazil, abdal, autad, zahid, 4bid, sali^. arif 
hain ; aur mushibahat un logon ko maUikih muqarrabtn se hai, 
ki neki karne men sabqat karte hain, laqa irabbani ke mushtaq 
hain, aur apne jan o mal se usi ki taraf mutawajjih hain, aur 
usi par tawakkul karte hain, usi se saw^l karte aur ummed 
rakhte hain, aur us ke khauf se darte hain ; aur agar ham guna- 
gar hain, ki uski itaat nahin k%rte, to ambiya ki sbafa^t se 
hamari makhla^i ho jawegi. Khasusan, nabi barhaq, rasul beshak 
ki shafaft se sab gunah hamare afu ho jawenge. B^d us ke 
ham hameshah jannat men rahenge, aur firishte ham se yih 
kahenge, Salam tum par, khush ho, tum, aur jannat men 
dakhil ho, hameshah us men raho. Aur tum, jitne guroh 
^aiwanon ke ho, sab in niamaton se ma|^rum hokar dunya ki 
mufaraqat ke bad bilkul fana ho jaoge, nam o nishan bhi 
tumhara na rahega. 

Is bat ke suntehi sab l^aiwanat ke wakilon ne, aur jannat ke 
^akimoij ne kaha, Ab tum ne bat (laq ki kahi, aur dalil mazbut 
bayan ki, fakhar-karnewale aisi chizoo se fakbar karte hain: 
lekin ab yih bayan karb, ki we log jin ke ye ausaf o ma^amid 
hain, akhlaq o khubiyan, aur nekiyan unki kis (aur par hain ? 
agar jante ho, to mufassal bayan karo. Sab insanon ne ek saat 
mutafakkar hokar sukiit ki. Kisi se bayan na ho saka.
