'''Marathi''' is the masin official language of the state of [[Maharashtra]], in [[India]], and one of the 22 official "scheduled" languages according to the Indian constitution. Marathi is written in the [[Devanagari]] script, like [[Hindi]] and some other Indian languages. It is the 4th most widely-spoken language in India, after [[Hindi]], Bengali and Telugu. Regional literature in Marathi dates back to around 1000 AD.
Marathi grammar is largely based on Sanskrit and Pali. Around 60% or more of the nouns in Marathi are derived directly from Sanskrit. Also, Marathi shares many words with Hindi. Unlike Hindi but like Sanskrit, Marathi has not 2 but 3 genders: masculine, feminine and neutral. Figuring out the gender of a word can sometimes be difficult, especially for English speakers.
I want to go at XYZ place.
mala XYZ zaga var zayecha aahe.
