A sad day for Urdu at The University of Washington

 It looks like no one wants to take Urdu at the University of Washington. I was at the bookstore the other day with my son and noticed that the shelves were full of Urdu workbooks.

urdu alphabet- प वर्ग और च वर्ग

ज और ब के बीच भी confusion होना स्वाभाविक है क्योंकि दोनों के नीचे एक बिन्दु लगता है,लेकिन धीरे धीरे प्रयास और पढने से आप दोनों में अन्तर करना सीख जायेंगे। च वर्ग के सारे अक्षर ऊपर की और से मुडेहुए होते हैं , अब देखिये:

प=پ پـ
च=چ چـ


ب بـज=ج جـ
अब देखिये इनमें अन्तर कैसे देखेंगे , एक शब्द है " जला" जिसका अर्थ है निकल देना , तडीपार या देश से निकल देना, और दूसरा शब्द है बला -जिसका अर्थ है विपत्ति,संकट।

बला -بلا
जला -جلا

झ =جھ

You probably thought I would not approve this comment, but being the quirky gal I am...I thought that everyone should see it.

I am amazed that you actually created a blogger account just to get my attention here. I mean, blocking you was not enough.

To think that I should not learn a language because I do not follow your superstition is just...well...weird.

It would be like me telling you to stop using a computer because Bill Gates is an atheist.

I hope you like the video I made for you.

If you did not know this about me, I have a very mean side when people mess with me.

You got me. Ok, I concede that it was not the best thing to do. All I have to say is that I only want to offer you my sincere unconditional apology and have deleted the message (I clicked the delete button). I am sicerely sorry and have no excuse to doing such a thing.

Hello Naomi. I am Mansoor . I am a native speaker of urdu. I just want to thank you for promoting different languages and especially urdu. Please make one change on the urdu page. The numerals that you have posted are arabic and not urdu. there is a link for urdu numerals.

I go to UW and that is normal to see until they get the number of students they want and then it usually disappears, usually.
