Extending the same concept we will learn how to say phrase “have to” in Gujarati.

In Gujarati, sentence formation is :-

Form of subject with suffix એ(e) object Main verb + form of વો(vo) as per
gender and multiplicity of object
form of “પડવું" (paDavuM) as per object and tense
મારે (mAre ) કેરી(kerI)ખાવી (khAvI ) પડે છે (paDe Che)

In the lesson for “should” we have seen form of pronouns with suffix એ(e) and form of વો(vo).
