All nouns in Hindi are divided into one of two grammatical types, called genders. These genders are masculine- पुल्लिंग and feminine- स्त्री लिंग. Nouns often modify other words in the sentence according to their gender.

All male living beings are masculine. All female living beings are feminine. In the case of names of inanimate things and abstract, collective and material nouns, gender is determined mainly by usage.
