Imagine a situation in which you're narrating some past incident to someone in which one of its sentence is "I went to a shop to buy a butter and all of a sudden I saw that two people were walking towards me."?
Now what will be its Hindi version ?
"mei shop me gya butter lene aur ek dum se mei dekha ki do log meri taraf aa rhe hai/the " Isme 'hai' aaega ki 'the' ? Since I'm narrating a past incident so it should be 'the' but at the same time usage of 'hai' sounds much more natural and 'hai' seems better ? So which would be correct ?
