This thread is a continuation from the closed thread whose link is given below. http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=2386867&highlight=past+for+future In this thread I have argued that in Urdu, a form that in appearance resembles a past tense, can in fact give future meaning. A number of examples were provided there. Urdu speakers agreed that this formation exists in Urdu but most Hindi speakers were of the view that this type of sentence is wrong. Today, I was watching a short Youtube video (1.22 minutes) in which Imran Khan was speaking. At 1.07 there is a caption in Urdu which says... jis din Supreme Court ne 4 HalqoN kii tasdiiq karvaa'ii, taariixii dhaaNdlii saamne aa'e gii. The day Supreme Court verifies/will verify the four constituencies, a historical rigging will come to light. Fortunately, we have several new arrivals to the Forum from Hindi speaking background. It would be good if they are able to take a quick look at the linked thread and offer their views here. Is the sentence quoted in this thread correct as far as Hindi grammar is concerned.
