No that is duhaai...duhaai means request if I am not wrong!? 
 
Actually ikai (1), dahai (10), senkda (100)...... is used while teaching number system (in Hindi medium atleast) to young kids.
 
What system is used in Marathi, Tamil, Bengali, Assamese, Oriya, Kannada, Telugu, Malyalam and other Indian languages? Anyone?
 


In punjabi its:


1-ek
10-dus
100-so (dont know how to type it out )
1000-Hazaar
10000-Dus Hazaar
100000-Lakh
1000000-Dus Lakh
10000000-Crore


etc.

Ahh..! one of those conspiracy theories.. LOL.. for  some reason i always had a hard time believing that.. Ermm.. just like when they say everyone was hindu in the olden days and they later converted to different religions.. LOLLOL..

like every other hindu i meeet..LOLLOLLOL..

thanks.. i'll need that..LOL
I'm a hindu, and I still say that's a bunch of crap....mankind didn't have a religion in the beginning...religion is really a belief and not a certainty. It's based on fiction and myths and folklore, not facts. There's no evidence of a Supreme Being existing. And then came iin the Scientologists...........I was laughing for a whole hour afer reading about their beliefs, my mom had to slap me left and right to calm me down.

seriously.. all that stuff gives you a good laugh..LOLLOL..  its really far-fetched..

I am a Hindu.. i follow Hinduism..Tongue

Well, you're an Indian-American, right? So, this religion stuff shouldn't mean anything to you. I just laugh my head off when I see those foreigners wearing sharwanis and talking in Hindi at the Iskcon Center.
