Again problem understanding plurals. Why is plural of elephant हाथी and not hathay? [sorry can't access Hindi script without copy/paste].

Masculine nouns that end in anything other than the vowel " ा" don't undergo any modification on pluralization (as long as the case is direct). हाथी is masculine and ends in " ी" and hence both the singular and plural forms are the same in the direct case.
