मेरी कल मेरे भाई के साथ लड़ाई हुई थी।

English Translation

I had a fight with my older brother yesterday.

Why is it मेरे भाई instead of अपने भाई ?


If you made the same mistake as me, you thought the first word was the Hindi translation of “my”. In fact, it’s a transliteration of the English name Mary. Mary is fighting with “my” brother. I believe you wouldn’t use अपने unless Mary fought with her own brother.
