मै करता था  ( mai karatA thA  )

मी करायचो  ( mI karAyacho )

 

वह लडकी बोलती थी ( vah laDakI bolatI thI  )

ती मुलगी बोलायची (tI mulagI bolAyachI ) 


वह लडका रोज नाचता था ( vah laDakA roj nAchatA thA  ) 

तो मुलगा रोज नाचायचा ( to mulagA roj nAchAyachA  )

 

वे लडके आम खाते थे  ( ve laDake Am khAte the  
ते मुलगे आंबे खायचे  ( te mulage AMbe khAyache  ) 


वो वहा होता था ( vo vahA hotA thA  ) 

तो तिकडे असायचा (to tikaDe asAyachA)


वो शांत रहती थी ( vo shAMt rahatI thI  ) 

ती शांत असायची (tI shAMt asAyachI )
