Hi, I have three bits of dialog in Hindi, in all cases a female speaking to a male, and am hoping if we have any Hindi speakers here they could validate them for me. My main concern is if they'd be modified based on gender of speaker or subject. They are as follows (warning: the second is a curse in Hindi):

1) Namaste = standard greeting, meaning "I bow to you."

2) Jhant ke pissu = a curse meaning "bug of a pubic hair."

3) Mera ashish tumhare saath hai = "My blessings are with you"

Sad to say I can't help you there. Although if you want to find a Hindi speaker you could always call customer support for any major company .

Well, though Hindi is the major official language of India, there are 21 others, such as Telugu, Marathi, Nepali, Telugu, Tamil, Bengali and so on. Even films made in Hindi are sometimes remade (not just dubbed) in other Indian languages.
