Next time also write the english version of your paragraph.

मैं वास्तव में भारतीय टीवी की तरह
This sentence makes no sense to me. :(

यह मेरा हिंदी बहुत मदद मिलती है.
इस से मुझे हिंदी सीखने में बहुत मदद मिलती है.

lali एक सर्वेक्षण अच्छा चरित्र है.
Again it makes no sense to me. Even when I know the meaning of सर्वेक्षण and चरित्र. :(

मैं इस शो में उसे बहुत पसंद है.
मैं इस शो में उसे बहुत पसंद करती हूँ.

मैं भी इस शो प्यार छोटी बहू.
I can make no sense here. :(

Rest of your paraghraph is also very confusing. :(

It is spelled as लाली. And it means redness/glow.

The following are its Hindi and Urdu version: (Words not used in Urdu are highlighted)

मैं वास्तव में हिंदी टीवी शौस को पसंद करती हूँ. इस से मुझे हिंदी सीखने में बहुत मदद मिलती है. मेरा पसंदीदा शो "अगले जनम मोहे बिटिया ही कीजो" है. मुझे वास्तव में लाली और शो में उस की भूमिका बहुत पसंद है. मुझे "छोटी बहू" भी पसंद है. मैं उसे स्कूल/विद्यालय जाने से पहले देख सकती हूँ क्युनके वो जल्दी आता है. मैं सच में इन शौस को देख के बहुत आनन्द लेती हूँ.

میں واقعی ہندی ٹی وی شوز کو پسند کرتی ہوں۔ اس سے مجھے ہندی سیکھنے میں بہت مدد ملتی ہے۔ میرا پسندیدہ شو "اگلے جنم موہے بٹیا ہی کیجو" ہے۔ مجھے واقعی لالی اور شو میں اس کا کردار بہت پسند ہے۔ مجھے "چھوٹی بہو" بھی پسند ہے۔ میں اسے اسکول جانے سے پہلے دیکھ سکتی ہوں کیونکہ وہ جلدی آتا ہے۔ میں واقعی ان شوز کو دیکھ کے بہت لطف اٹھاتی ہوں۔

All Urdu words are used in hindi and can be understood by hindi speakers because Bollywood and Indian songs use neutralized version of the language in which we don't listen to Sanskrit words or heavy persian/Arabic borrowings. But that is not the case in Pakistan, for example when listening to BBC Hindi, it is very difficult to understand it because they use "Pure Hindi" which in not understood by Pakistani Urdu Speakers.

I would recommend you to use neautralized language i.e you shouldn't use sanskrit and heavy persian/arabic words, because in some parts of India like in Delhi, Lucknow and Amroha people almost speak Urdu. "Shudh Hindi" is not used in conversation, it is just for formal meetings and for newspapers.

[flag]hi[/flag]आज बहुत मज़ा था. मैं हिन्दुस्तानी की रेस्तुरांत में खायी मेरा दोस्त के साथ. ये खाना बहुत अच्छा था. मुझे पनीर मखानी खायी और मेरा दोस्त तन्दोरी मुर्गी खाया. मैं गोश्त नहीं खाती. रात का खाना के बाद मैं और मेरा दोस्त "रंग दे बसंती" देखा. फिल्म बहुत अच्छा था. और आब मैं आराम से रही हूँ और मैं संगीत सुन रही हूँ.

[flag]hi[/flag] आजकल मैं बहुत व्यस्त हूँ. लेकिन मैं हिंदी और उर्दू अद्ब्व्यास रही हूँ. मैंने उर्दू की ग्राम्मर की किताब ख़रीदा. यह किताब बहुत अच्छी है.

[flag]ur[/flag]آج کل میں بہت مصروف ہوں. لیکن میں اردو اور اردو نادبویاس رہی ہوں. میں نے اردو کی گراممر کی کتاب خریدا. یہ کتاب بہت اچھی ہے

Not knowing Devanagari, I can't help you with your Hindi, but here are my corrections for your Urdu paragraph.

آج بہت مزا تھا.
آج بہت مزا آیا.

The latter is how Urdu speakers would say, "Today was a lot of fun."


میں ہندوستانی کی رےسترانات میں کائےن میرا دوست کے ساتھ.
میں ایک ہندوستانی ریسٹورنٹ گئے اپنے دوست کے ساتھ.

Notice how I spelled restaurant using the retroflex «ٹ» instead of «ت». To me, it also looks like you're using «ک» where you should be using «گ».

You also used merā «میرا» when you should have used apne «اپنے». This post provides an explanation of when to use which.


یہ کھانا بہت اچھا تھا.
انکا کھانا بہت اچھا تھا.

You wrote, "This food was good," when it should be written as "Their food was good."


مجھے پنیر وکانی کائےن اور میرا دوست تنفور مرغی کھایا.
مینے پنیر مکھنی کھایا اور میرے دوست نے تندوری چکن کھایا.

I have no idea what paneer wakānī «پنیر وکانی» and tanfoor murghī «تنفور مرغی» are, but I assume you were referring to paneer makhanī «پنیر مکھنی» and tandoorī chicken «تندوری چکن» :wink:

Even Urdu speakers in Pakistan don't say tandoorī murghī «تندوری مرغی»
Tandoorī chicken «تندوری چکن» is the widely used term.


میں گوشت نہیں کھاتی.

Perfect! :)


رات کا کھانا کے بعد میں اور میرا دوست "رنگ دے بسنتی" دیکھا.
رات کے کھانا کے بعد میں اور میرے دوست نے "رنگ دے بسنتی" دیکھی.

Both «رات کا کھانا» and «رات کے کھانا» mean dinner, but in this specific sentence, the latter sounds more natural in speech.


فلم بہت اچھا تھا.
فلم بہت اچھی تھی.


I'll correct your other post when I have more time, but feel free to continue posting paragraphs in this thread :)
ख़ुसरो दरिया प्रेम का उल्टा वा धार । जो उतरा सो डूब गया जो डूबा सो पार | अमीर ख़ुसरौ दहलवी
O Khusro, the river of love runs in strange directions. |
The one who enters it drowns, and the one who drowns, gets across. |
Amīr Khusro of Dehlī (1253–1325 CE)
