    Re: Uses of "BEING" word.

    Welcome to the forum, ashita sonkar.

    As this is an English language forum, please avoid chatlish contractions such as 'plz'. The word is 'please'.

    Here are some examples of 'being' in sentences. Feel free to ask about any of them.


    Being old is not so bad.
    I like being old.
    Being old, I am often offered a seat when I travel by tram.
    My grandson is being rather difficult at the moment.

    There is no literal translation of "being" in Hindi.

    Re: Uses of "BEING" word.

    You didn't specify what kind of "being" you were talking about so "I am a human being" is another example.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
