Present perfect continuous tense examples in Hindi to English translation

The present perfect continuous tense in Hindi is often formed using the auxiliary verb "है" (hai) along with the present participle of the main verb and the auxiliary verb "रहा/रही/रहे" (raha/rahi/rahe) depending on the gender and number of the subject. This tense indicates an action that started in the past, has been ongoing, and is still relevant to the present. Let's explore a few examples:

1. हम तुम्हारी यात्रा का इंतजार कर रहे हैं।

   - English: We have been waiting for your journey.

2. तुम यहाँ कितने समय से खड़े हो रहे हो?

   - English: How long have you been standing here?

3. मैं यह किताब पढ़ रहा हूँ।

   - English: I have been reading this book.

4. वह तुम्हें बहुत देर से प्रतीक्षा कर रही है।

   - English: She has been waiting for you for a long time.

5. हम यह नई योजना पर काम कर रहे हैं।

   - English: We have been working on this new plan.

6. तुम्हारी माता जी बच्चों का ख्याल रख रही हैं।

   - English: Your mother has been taking care of the children.

In these examples, the present perfect continuous tense indicates actions that started in the past and are still ongoing or have just been completed. The present participle (like कर रहे हैं, खड़े हो रहे हो, पढ़ रहा हूँ) and the auxiliary verb "रहा/रही/रहे" (raha/rahi/rahe) convey the continuous aspect of the action. These examples showcase the versatility of the present perfect continuous tense in Hindi to describe ongoing actions with a connection to the present moment.
