    Welcome to the forums.
    The second sentence is not correct. Can you think why?

    Please remember to use a capital letter for the first person singular pronoun.

    It is fortunate that bhaisahab got to your question before I did. I read it too quickly and did not initially spot the problem that bhai did. It's the sort of mistake that some native speakers make, and it does not generally cause misunderstandings however, it is still a mistake. Moving a couple of words will make the intended meaning of your sentence completely clear.
