Pronunciation Basics Tips

New words, lessons and essays; when read for the first time pose a certain degree of problem. For instance, when you read a pamphlet or leaflet selling tiles or a washing machine, you might come across new words, technical in nature; often difficult to speak or pronounce. And, you end up classifying the text as tough or difficult. Why get discouraged?
Here are a few common points that help you simplify pronunciation:
1. Know the difference between ‘p’ and ‘b’ (Put and But)
2. Know the difference between ‘b’ and ‘v’ (Ban and Van)
3. C is pronounced as Cat (sound of Ka) as well as Cell (sound of S)
4. Ch sound comes from stion or ture (Question) and (Picture)

Well, there are plenty of them; try adding them here.

बिना: without

I have heard this word almost a thousand times on the Radio with every song being played. The expression "tere bin" signifies the deep intent of "without you".
