    I don't understand the point of having oblique case in Hindi. There is no oblique case in English.

    For instance

    Example: केले में – In the banana

    Why can't is be केल में

    or

    Example: मेरे केले में – In my banana

    Why can't it be मेर केल में

    Hahaha nice question!!

    It is difficult to have a response to this... but if you're an Indian and know any Indian language well (well enough to speak is also ok) - then do not compare hindi with English while trying to learn it...

    Even if you're better with english, use the vocabulary and understand the meaning in english, but sentence structure, formation, grammar, sandhi, samasa etc - try comparing with your own language...

    Try comparing with your native language - you will learn much faster !!
