Expressing Thanks – Hindi


Wherever your destination may be, manners are a must! And in this respect, India is no different. We'll be teaching you a simple phrase that is bound to come in handy throughout your trip to India.

In Hindi, "Thank you" is dhanyavaad. You can emphasize dhanyavaad by adding bahut, which literally means "very much." You could say bahut dhanyavaad, which would be equivalent to "Thank you very much," or "Thanks a lot."

In Hindi, there are other ways to express one's gratitude. Dhanyavaad derives from Sanskrit, and it's felt as quite formal. That's why some people prefer to use Urdu expressions, which are felt as more colloquial. A more colloquial expression for "Thank you" in Hindi is shukriyaa. Also, shukriyaa can be preceded by bauht, which means "very much.
