Rani Datai Advocates Proper Pronunciation When Doing Hindustani, Hindi, Punjabi Covers in the following statement:

One thing that bothers me very much.. “PRONUNCIATION”.

I noticed that more and more artists among us cover songs or make songs in Hindustani, Hindi, Punjabi and you name it; but really, the pronunciation is often completely incorrect! In some cases I don’t even understand what is being sung anymore.. That level of bad pronunciation.

We live in a different time, so I can imagine some of you are not fluent in the languages. However, I believe that you can ALWAYS listen to the original song and learn more about the song and the grammar for your own pronunciation.

Be critical of your own singing skills!!!

I said what I said cause I had to. Also, I think there are more people who noticed this so please don’t feel attacked, let’s just work on it. 🙏🏽

Is Caribbean Hindustani a corrupted form of Hindi

Caribbean Hindustani and its variants; like Trinidad Bhojpuri, Sarnami and Guyanese Bhojpuri, have too often been a subject of much scrutiny. After indentureship and the independence of India. Khari Boli or Modern Standard Hindi (MSH) slowly replaced the older standards of Braj Bhasha and Awadhi. This all Hindustani was compared to this new standard.
Because Caribbean Hindustani was more a spoken Hindustani  it was deemed inferior to MSH. Further, because of the high degree of lexical similarities between the two languages in contrast with their grammatical differences, Caribbean Hindustani was seen as a “broken” or “corrupted” variety of MSH. However, Bhojpuri, which formed the critical mass of Caribbean Hindustani, is of much greater antiquity than MSH. Even the famous poet Kabirdas of the 15th century composed in Baranasi Boli, a variety of Bhojpuri.
Here is an example of a Caribbean Hindustani word that is quite popularly used in the Caribbean. “Tāwā” (a flat metal griddle used to make roti) is the word known by most of the descendants of the Indian indentured laborers’ descendants. However, when they attend Hindi classes and learn the MSH cognate, “tawā”, the impression is that the Indo-Caribbean version is a corrupted form.
