    The last one which you wrote as ‘धुप खाना’ is actually ‘धूप खाना’. I just wanted to inform you because sometimes the “matraas” are very important to be correct as in the case of जुट and जूट. जुट is from the verb जुटना which means to do one action for a long time and जूट is a natural fabric

    • Hi, Aadit – thank you for you correction. The error was a simple typographical error.
