Duolingo, I think if I suddenly develop amnesia I'll have bigger problems than expressing it in Hindi... ;)

What if you suddenly develop amnesia in a monoligual area of the part of India that speaks Hindi?

Is this some kind of Indian philosophy?

Yes, the question मैं कौन हूँ? (Who am I?) is integral to the non-dual philosophy of Ramana Maharshi. The other two questions on water and tea have nothing to do with the same :)

Interesting. This might be an introduction to study Indian philosophy for my first time. Thank you for the comment!

Yo. That is fine. I love Indian philosophy. I have read the Bhagavad Gita, studied the Mahabharata and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. This is why I want to learn Hindi and Sanskrit. But as part of one of the first lessons, we don't understand enough yet to get into philosophical statements such as "What is tea? What is water? Who am I?" I LOVE INDIAN PHILOSOPHY, but as a beginner student, I was afraid that I was misunderstanding what I thought would be a beginner level statement. Better to keep it simple... at first....
