To indicate that some action is mandatory we use “must”/“have to” phrase in English.

e.g. “He has to complete it today” ; “you must follow rules” etc.


In Marathi sentence formation is :-

Form of noun/pronoun in form like “to me”,”to him” etc.  

verb+ “आयला “ (AyalA) OR

Verb+ form of “आवे” (Ave) as per object


form of लागणे


as per tense and objective



जायला / जावे





By “form of आवे (Ave) as per gender” we mean depending on gender and multiplicity of object the suffix will change as per आ-ई-ए-ए-या-ई (A-I-e-e-yA-I) rule  

आवा-आवी-आवे-आवे-आव्या-आवी (AvA-AvI-Ave-Ave-AvyA-AvI)

e.g. for verb जाणे(jANe) form will be 


Masculine singular  जावा (jAvA)                   Masculine plural जावे (jAve)

Feminine singular जावी (jAvI)                      Feminine plural जाव्या (jAvyA)

Neuter singular जावे (jAve)                         Neuter plural जावी  (jAvI)
