Hi all:
I am Chinese and when I was a college student,my major was Hindi language and modern Hindi literature,I studied Urdu for one year too,because I thought that Hindustani is actually ONE language but not two separate languages,though some religion-nationalist may argue that these two languages represent two contradictive cultures and Hindi is India while Urdu is Pakistan.
I want to make friends with those people who study/speak Hindustani or have interest in Hindustani Literature.

Kyaa Haal Chaal Hein? (What's up?)

I speak Urdu as a native language and can communicate easily with Indians. Urdu and Hindhi are mutually intelligibe languages when it comes to speaking. Drop your email address. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Shukariyaa. (Thanks).
