Consider sentence “I will finish it tomorrow”. Now if you want to emphasize about the time you will say “I will finish it tomorrow it self”.

Consider sentence “He told me that he got lottery”. Now to emphasize on who told you, you will say “He himself told me he got lottery”.

Sometimes Indian tend to create such sentences as “He only told me”, “You only asked me close door” etc.

In Marathi we use च(ch) to emphasize on word. च(ch) is one-size-fits-all kind of suffix. You can add it कर्ता (kartA) i.e. doer of action, कर्म (karm) noun, verb or any other word which you want to emphasize.

Let us see examples :- 

I myself did it -> मी हे केले (mIch he kele)

I did this itself -> मी हे केले (mI hech kele)

I will come tomorrow itself -> मी उद्या येईन (mI udyAch yeIn)

I will surely come -> मी येईन (mI yeInach)

I have seen India only -> मी भारत बघितला आहे (mI bhAratach baghitalA Ahe)

Is this the result of my efforts ? -> माझ्या मेहनतीचा हा परिणाम का (mAjhyA mehanatIchA hAch pariNAm kA)

He kept on talking -> तो बोलत राहिला (to bolatach rAhilA)

He kept on staring that car ->तो ती गाडी बघत राहिला (to tI gADI baghatach rAhilA)

I want only sedan car -> मला सिडान कार पाहिजे  (malA siDAn kArach pAhije )

I must go there -> मला तिथे जायला पाहिजे (malA tithe jAyalAch pAhije )

Why just me ? -> मी का (mIch kA)
