Yes.. I agree. Here पीता refers to a masculine subject. i.e. When it a male person referring to himself. If it was a female saying this it would be हॉ, मैं चाय पीती हूँं।
Does Hindi treat simple present and present continous differently?
Is "Yes, I am drinking tea." correct?
"Yes, I am drinking tea."
I think that would be हाँ मैं चाय पी रहा हूँ
