Laloo, the whole world is friendly.Although you can communicate with millions of illeterate in Hindi,rest of the world outside India seldom knows Hindi.So I think we should ask our eldest son in law who is a software engineer working at Bangalore to start LalooRabdi Ranch.We can also ask his firm to make Hindi keyboard although Devnagri fonts exist.
So see you in Patna again

According to you the person who knows hindi and does not know english is illeterate.
Then the people who only knows french or chinese or russian or any other language and does not know english are also illeterate.

Did I hear some one saying that Pakistan is in India? And Bangladesh?
This Link says "More than 180 million people in India regard Hindi as their mother tongue. Another 300 million use it as second language. Outside of India, Hindi speakers are
  • 100,000 in USA;
  • 685,170 in Mauritius;
  • 890,292 in South Africa;
  • 232,760 in Yemen;
  • 147,000 in Uganda;
  • 5,000 in Singapore;
  • 8 million in Nepal;
  • 20,000 in New Zealand;
  • 30,000 in Germany.
  • Urdu, the official language of Pakistan, spoken by about 41 million in Pakistan and other

  • countries, is essentially the same language.

    Rabdi, Laloo made a mistake selecting you as his partner

    Your sum according to 'that link' constitutes not more than 11 million .Also considering Urdu as a subset of Hindi does not seem to have any basis.

    It has a basis. To understand that, you need to have some thing called 'commonsense' - No you can't buy it on Internet or elsewhere.

    I re-read your statement, but still means that being able to speak Hindi makes you eligible to speak millions of illiterates, and that?s all. So, that implies that all who knows Hindi or uses Hindi are illiterates! Well, I didn't know we have more than 2 billion Hindi speaking illiterates in the world.

    Hi Laloo
    seeing you after long time..
    But good point raised..
    AW who is this Rabdi Debi to interfere and give statements abt people who speaks Hindi
    AW as she is your wife I am not saying other things ..
    but nice to see two famous personalities together on ranch
    Keep it up ..
    Language is just matter of communication and love has no loanguage .. so we must go for love ... where communication is much easier and you dont have to look for correct words and grammer

    Just an FYI....There are 1600+ language dialects in India. And here is a list of more than 1000 mother tongues (languages) spoken in India...not sure why only HINDI receives so much attention...i have no complaints though

    I think there is alot of scope related to language software, I am not a expert on the subject , but natural language processing software can play important role in India.and we can do that here in India, no need of immigrant visas,H1/H4 etc
    Can anybody has a suggestion ?
    similar to what CDAC(www.cdac.org) developed(I think SHREE or something), any suggestions?
    Ingeneral to what extent domestic Indian software market could be developed? I don't see much players other than some initiatives taken by Infosys/state Govts.

    Absolutely right I agree with you, but it also need some finance, which poor software professionals like me dont have so please ask people like your father to give us some finance (after all he is chara king) so we can commence some good projects

    I agree that making a software requires a lot of money ,but I am asking your view about how software professionals in India can help deomestic market grow.Ideas/views/suggestions don't require money
    Making the software is the next step,but whats the problem in stretching the heads for the cause of our people?What do you say?

    It shows real frustation of Misa? (as she was trying some meaningful talk)
    AW how is your nursing home now, Misa
    Misa ... In India domestic market after 10 yr will be great but right now I dont think it has a good market.
    Reason one , computer comes under luxry item.
    Reason two, users are very less(I read some where .2 OR 2%), agree that they are increasing.
    Reason three, we need some good laws for piracy.
    But if someone wants to be pioneer in the Indian market then he should be able to survive for atleast 5 yr without profit or say with loss. Then I am sure India is a potential market for s/w
    If you are planing for some open source project then ...All the best .. I might try to contribute ..

    Here's my version of a translation:
    The laughter of Hindustani is alot,
    Causing many ongoing amusing "chewing overs"
    Directing legions towards amusing sounds
    The soul of the many for my amusement
    Eenie Meenie Miney Mo
    Of course it is more difficult to translate since I don't speak Hindi. :roll:

    Sigh! I expected this. OK. Here it comes.
    Here's a hindi poem to cheer you up.
    Is a false statement. This contains nothing but English. I shall go over the words one by one. The meanngs are taken from Webster's online dictionary.
    Hum
    Main Entry: 1hum
    Pronunciation: 'h&m
    Function: verb
    Inflected Form(s): hummed; hum�ming

    It must be English. How else could it creep into the JLS ?
    to
    Main Entry: 1to
    Pronunciation: t&, tu, 't�
    Function: preposition
    Etymology: Middle English, from Old English tO; akin to Old High German zuo to, Latin donec as long as, until

    Eenie Meenie Miney Mo
    Er... Here comes the tricky part. I could not find this in the dictionary. So I decided to refer this to an expert. The expert turned out to be my 10 year old Jenny.
    <pre>
    Self : Honey! If said said "Eeenie Miney Miney Mo" what language would I be speaking.
    Jenny : It depends.
    Self : It depends on what ?
    Jenny : It depends on where you are.
    Self : What do you mean "where you are"?
    Jenny : Well. If you are in the bathtub you would be singing in your bath.
    Self : [suppressing an urge to strangle the little genius] Shall I repeat
    the question ?
    Jenny : I heard you the first time.
    Self : So what language would I be speaking?
    Jenny : There is no need to shout.
    Self : OK. I am sorry. Now will you please answer the question?
    Jenny : What question?
    Self : What language am I speaking ?
    Jenny : You are speaking English now.
    Self : I dont mean now. I mean when I say "Eenie Meenie Miney Mo"
    Jenny : Depends on who you are saying it to.
    Self : What do you mean by that ?
    Jenny : Well. If you are saying it to a Japanese man, you would be speaking Japanese.
    Self : I see. What if I were saying it to a Korean?
    Jenny : Well then you would be speaking Korean.
    Self : I fail to see the logic in this.
    Jenny : What does "logic" mean?
    Self : [grinds his teeth] That is neither here nor there.
    Now will you please answer the question?
    Jenny : Stop shouting, will you ?
    Self : Ok. I am sorry. What if I said this to a penguin?
    Jenny : [giggles] Well, then you would be a silly goose.
    </pre>

    I give up. Can we make a deal? Could you just delete the last line and leave the rest?

    Oh no Lalooprasad! You are wrong! I thought that it was English also at first . But then when I went to translate it - I found each and every one of those words has a meaning in Hindi . . . well except for Maria and that Eenie Meenie Minie Mo part .
    Of course many of the words had LOTS of meanings in Hindi - so I got to PICK which interpretation I likes best .
    Yep - I like my translation MUCH better than yours.
