There is a tradition in English to express thanks and sorry on every small things and using polite phrases. Common Polite words/Phrases are:
English meiN har chhoTee-chhoTee baat par thanks aur sorry aur shishTaachaar shabdoN/vakyo ko bolane kaa riwaaj hai. Prachlit shishTaachaar shabd/words :
Please, Kindly - When you are to ask time, pen or any thing, then you are to use ‘please’ or ‘kindly’. If somebody has asked you and you are giving pen or anything or you are replying, you should say ‘please’ while giving anything. ‘Kindly’ is normally used in writing and for seniors.
Kripayaa (Please, Kindly) – Jab hame kisee se time poochhanaa ho yaa koi vastu maanganee ho to ‘kripayaa – please-kindly’ kahate hai. Agar kisee ne aapase maangaa aur aap vah vastu de rahe ho yaa jawaab de rahe ho, tab bhee appako ‘please’ kahanaa hai. ‘Kindly’ aamtaur par likhane meiN aur seniors ke liye istemaal hotaa hai.
Thanks - If someone has done even a small thing for you or gives you something, you should say ‘thanks’ or ‘thank you’ in your response. Use of words 'thanks or thank you' appears a bit informal hence some other words may
be joined with it like - Thanks a lot / Many thanks / Thank you very much / Thank you very much indeed / Thank you so much / Thank you very much for your help / for your guidance / for the present.
When someone thanks to you, you should again respond and say ‘It’s all right’, or ‘it’s fine’, or 'That's okay', or '(Oh) Not at all', or 'Don't mention it', or ‘it’s/that's my pleasure’, or ‘welcome’ or ‘you are welcome’.
Dhanyavaad (Thanks) - Agar kisee ne aapakaa chhoTa saa kaam kiyaa ho yaa jawaab diyaa, tab aapako dhanyavaad in shabdoN ke saath kahanaa hai - ‘thanks’ or ‘thank you’. Kewal 'thanks or thank you' kaa prayog anaupachaarik
maanaa jaataa hai isliye inake saath kuchh aur bhee shabd joDe jaa sakate hai jaise - bahut dhanyavaad, bahut bahut dhanyavaad, vaastav meiN aapakaa bahut dhanyavaad, aapakee madad ke liye / maargdarshan ke liye / upahaar ke liye bahut dhanyavaad.
Dhanyavaad ke jawaab meiN aapako ‘theek hai’, ‘isame meree khushee hai’, 'swaagat hai’ aadi in shabdoN ke saath kahanaa hai -‘It’s all right’, or ‘it’s fine’, or 'Thant's okay', or '(Oh) Not at all', or 'Don't mention it', or ‘it’s/that's my pleasure’,
or ‘welcome’ or ‘you are welcome’.
Sorry, Excuse Me, Pardon -
If you are late or you forget something or you have come across of others or your body/things touched somebody, you should say ‘sorry’ for everything.
If you want to attract someone’s attention or you are to pass in between of some persons or you are sitting in a group and you are to go out for a while, you should say ‘excuse me’. On sneezing in front of others, you should say "Excuse me". On this 'Excuse me' others can say "Bless you"
When over phone you do not hear clearly, please say ‘pardon’ or ‘I beg your pardon', to hear again.
Maaf kijiyegaa (Sorry, Excuse Me, Pardon) -
Maafee ke liye alag alag avsar par alag alag shabd boleN jaate hai. Aamtaur par kuchh bhool jaane per, kisee ke beech meiN aane par, kisee se Takraane par, ‘sorry’ kah kar maafee maangate hai.
Agar aap kisee kaa sabhyataapurvak dhyaan aakarshit karanaa chaahate hai, yaa do logo ke beech se gujaranaa chaahate ho, yaa kisee group meiN baiThe ho aur kuchh samay ke liye uThanaa chaahate ho to aapako ‘Excuse me’ bolanaa hai. Doosro ke saamane chheenk aane par aap kahate hai "Excuse me". Is "Excuse me" ke jawaab meiN saamane waalaa "Bless you" bol sakataa hai.
Phone par baat karate samay agar aapako Theek se sunaai nahee detaa hai to aapako kahanaa hai 'pardon please' or 'I beg your pardon', saamane waalaa vyaktee samajh jaayegaa aur baat ko dobaaraa kahegaa.
Allow me – If you want to render small help to other like you want to carry the bag of senior, you should say – 'Allow me to carry the bag, please'. In place of 'Allow me'
you may also use 'May I help you?'
Ijajat Dijiye -
Agar aap kisee kee chhoTee see bhee sahaayataa karanaa chaahate ho –jaise kisee senior kaa bag uThanaa chaahate ho to aap kahate hai – aapakaa bag uThaane kee ijaajat dijiye. 'Ijaajat dijiye' ke sthan
