This seems to be inflected as a question. I.e. rising tone on the 'hai'.

  1. Is this ever done in Hindi? I.e. turning a statement into a yes/no question by simply changing the inflection?
  2. Does anybody else hear this the same way as me?

Edit 8-March-2020: Yes, rising inflection is used in Hindi, just as in English.
