Why do you not use the plural form for friends? I looked up what "friends" is and it is दोस्तों . According to a popular translation site if you change to the plural form for banana it changes the object form to plural (e.g. "bananas" or "banana" is "राज के केले खराब हैं।" or "राज का केला खराब है।" ) so why not change for friend vs friends too?
That's a good observation... as a native speaker.... even i am unable to provide you an convincing explanation...however i will attempt to.... It is coz the number is not specified in this case... In Hindi, at times the plural form is used only when the number is used. Thinking of an analogy.... may be similar to ....Fish and its plural being Fish while Fishes is also a plural in certain cases.
