To indicate the continuity of action we use “To keep doing” form of sentence.

e.g I keep trying evein if I fail.

He kept speaking until all slept.

Do not stop, keep doing

 

In Marathi sentence formation is “-

                            

Doer of action         

verb+  (t)              

form of “राहणे” (rAhaNe) as per subject and tense

मी

बोलत

राहिलो

 

Like few exceptions the verb राह” changes to “राहि before creating its simple past tense.

 

Below example will clarify concept :-

I keep speaking  :- मी बोलत राहतो (mI bolat rAhato )

I kept speaking   :- मी बोलत राहिलो (mI bolat rAhilo)

I will keep speaking  :- मी बोलत राहीन  (mI bolat rAhIn)

 

You keep speaking  :- तू बोलत राहतोस  (tU bolat rAhatos )

You kept speaking   :- तू बोलत राहिलास   (tU bolat rAhilAs )

You will keep speaking  :- तू बोलत राहशील  (tU bolat rAhashIl 

Keep speaking !!     (Imperative statement)      :-  बोलत राहा  (bolat rAhA)
