No, I think people who speak Hindi seem to think that even "home" Urdu is slightly more formal. All the words you list above are actually common Urdu words. I use waqt and akhbaar all the time without realizing that these are pure Urdu words.

Yup, people from Old Delhi speak Urdu well.
 
Yeah those common words are like the only flashes of Urduness you notice in day to day conversation. But he had a completely farsi type education so he knows a lot of the poetic urdu and remembers all these poems which is really lucky.

That is interesting. I don't know what khuraak is but I use waqt, akhbaar, daftar all the time. Never was aware of my Urdu word usage. Urdu is used so much in lyrics and there is so much crossover, its hard to know which is which. I think the actual Hindi words are samay, samachar patra and karyalaya. Not sure though.

I just say time, newspaper, office even in Hindi lol. But yeah the strict Hindi words would be samay etc. Khuraak is 'dose' or 'share' ... like your daily dose of food. LOL
