    This is response to Sammamish Scene 2010’s article, “It takes many languages to create a diverse community,” Page 20. Enlightening article, I must say! Cultural diversity is the key to a great community where everybody lives in harmony and Sammamish sure is one such community that we have come to love.

    The “Common Phrases” section of the article is very informative. However, I would like to correct some of the Hindi phrases that are mentioned in the article:

    1. “Hello” in Hindi is not “Hailo,” but “Namaste.”
    2. “My name is” in Hindi is “Meraa Naam Hai.” (Guess this is almost correct)
    3. “How are you?” in Hindi is “Aap kaise ho?” The phrase mentioned in the article sounds completely different and definitely not Hindi!
    4. “Goodbye” in Hindi is not “Alvida.” Alvida is an Urdu word. In Hindi it would be “Namaste” again.

    On the whole, nice article!

Got something to say?
