How To Count Numbers From 1 to 1000000 In Hindi
Hindi : An Introduction To The Language
While I clicked on "start a new hub" tab and explored through the category of Education and Science >>Foreign languages>>Hindustani, I got to know that Hindi might not have been a popular language here at Hubpages. The reason behind my perception is the reference given to aforesaid language as "Hindustani" instead of "Hindi". I want to clarify here that the language "Hindi" is a standard form of "Hindustani" which was the bridge language between the people of "North India" and "Pakistan". Hindustani is a pluricentric language emerging out as "Hindi" and "Urdu" in standard forms. Hindi is deflected towards "Sanskrit" and Urdu towards "Persian" for most of its composition while their base Hindustani consisting of words from both.
For writing purpose, Hindi uses the Devanagari script which has 11 vowels and 33 consonants and written from left to right. Hindi has received "The Official Language" status in most of the provinces of India and government of India keeps promoting it as the medium of communication across all cultures within the country. Here, we will discuss about how to count numbers upto a million in Hindi.
"Hindi is the fourth most spoken language in the world after Chinese, Spanish and English"
Basic Peripheral Numbers
Every language has some basic peripherals which are utilized to advance on the path of counting numbers. These peripherals are repeatedly used again and again to reach the desired destination in the world of numbers, Same is the case of Hindi which has 100 basic peripherals.The English has 20 peripherals after which the upcoming numbers starts adopting them in their nomenclature. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen and twenty are the aforesaid peripherals after which the forthcoming number twenty one{Twenty+One(using the basic peripheral one)} starts using basic peripherals in its nomenclature.
In case of Hindi, you will have to memorize 100 peripherals before you could start the counting process logically. This makes a big difference between the Hindi and English. Moreover, it makes the counting process more difficult in Hindi as compared to the English.

Things To Keep In Mind
 The Devanagari script words demonstrated in Latin are underlined so that the readers may distinguish them from their English names.
 While the author refers the word "Writing Of Numbers" he means "the pronunciation of numbers in Hindi".
The Rules For Counting!
Once you have memorized the above mentioned peripherals, your half task of learning about counting numbers in Hindi is complete because the forthcoming process is logical. Now you will use the existing peripherals along with a little bit conjuncture added for higher order terms like hundred or thousand similarly as you use in case of English also. Just Keep in mind some simple rules given below :
 Rule 1 : The orders of 10^{2}, 10^{3} and 10^{5} are used for nomenclature of all the numbers from 11000000. For counting of a number in Hindi, first of all break the number in its constituents assigning basic peripherals along with their multiplicative order according to its position in the number.
Suppose, you are given the number 51368 to count. The first thing that you will do is to beak the number mathematically as follows :
51368 = 51x1000+3x100+68(Keep in mind that the multiple orders of 10^{2}=100, 10^{3}=1000and 10^{5}=100000 will be used only)
 Rule 2 : The nomenclature of each number starts by defining the most left digit along with its order and proceeding to the right meanwhile defining all the intervening digits along with their orders.
For the number 51368 = 51x1000+3x100+68, the most left part is 51 which has the noun "Ikavan"(see the table above) in Hindi, Hence according to this rule we will write "Ikavan" first of all.
51 : Ikavan
Then proceeding to the right comes the multiple order of 51, which is 1000(Thousand). Here you will define it and then proceed further. The noun for 1000 in Hindi is "Hajaar" So we will write "Hajaar" next to "Ikavan"
51x1000 : Ikavan Hajaar
Getting further right, we will encounter the multiple peripheral for next lower order term(100) which is 3. The noun for 3 in Hindi is "Teen" and we will define it in our nomenclature to proceed further. The noun for the order of 100 is "So"(see the table above) in Hindi. The term will become as follows after the adtion of these digits :
51x1000+3x100 : Ikavan Hajaar Teen So
Now we are left undefined with the remainder 68, which is a basic peripheral. The noun of 68 is "Athsath"(refer table above) which will be simply added to complete the term in the manner similarly as we have added term earlier. Our nomenclature will complete as follows :
51x100+3x100+68 : Ikavan Hajaar Teen So Athsath
Counting After 100.....
Keeping in mind the above mentioned basic peripherals, higher order terms and rules we will begin the counting process from 101 now.
According to the rule 1 split the number 101 mathematically as follows :
101 = 1x100+1
Now we will define the most left number along with its multiple order as prescribed in rule number 2. We know that the noun for 1 and 100 in Hindi are "Ek" and "So" respectively. So we will write the left portion of the number as follows :
1x100 = Ek(One) So(Hundred)
According to the same rule  2 we will proceed towards right for complete nomenclature of the number. Remainder is 1 which also has the noun "Ek" so we will complete the nomenclature of 101 defining all of its constituents as follows :
1x100+1 = Ek(One) So(Hundred) Ek(One)
So 101 will be collectively pronounced as "Ek So Ek" in Hindi.
101 = Ek So Ek
After 101, the next number is 102. Now we will again follow the rule  1 as followed above :
102 = 1x100+2
We will follow the rule  2 now, we know that 1x100 as defined previously, has the noun "Ek So" in Hindi :
1x100 = Ek So
Now we will have to add the noun for the remainder which is 2. From the table given above, we can easily find the noun for 2 which is "Dow" So the number 102 will be completely defined as follows :
1x100+2 = Ek(One) So(Hundred) Dow(Two) or
102 = Ek So Dow
Following the rules 1,2 we can easily pronounce the numbers from 101  199 by writing 1x100 as "Ek So" and then substituting the noun for the basic peripheral remainder from the table given above. Some of the examples are as follows :
103 = 1x100+3 = Ek(One) So(Hundred) Teen(Three)
104 = 1x100+4 = Ek(One) So(Hundred) Char(Four)
105 = 1x100+5 = Ek(One) So(Hundred) Paanch(Five)
106 = 1x100+6 = Ek(One) So(Hundred) Chhey(Six)
...............................................
198 = 1x100+98 = Ek(One) So(Hundred) Athanve(Ninety Eight)
199 = 1X100+99 = Ek(One) So(Hundred) Ninyanve(Ninety nine)
Now the number comes 200. Applying rule  1, we will disintegrate 200 into its constituents as follows :
200 = 2x100
We can see here that the multiple of higher order term(100) has been changed now; so we will recall our table of basic peripherals and assign the noun for the new multiple. The noun for 2 in Hindi is "Dow" and it will replace the noun of 1 for the order of 10^{2} in the previous numbers 101  199.
Therefore, according to rule  2, the number 200 will be represented in Hindi as follows :
2x100 = Dow(Two) So(Hundred)
Moving to our next number 201; applying rule  1 :
201 = 2x100+1
Now according to rule  2 we will start writing the number 201 from left side by substituting Hindi values for digits at their respective positions.
2x100+1 = Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Ek(One)
So 201 will be collectively written as follows in Hindi :
201 = Dow So Ek
Similarly the nomenclature of 202 :
202 = 2X100+2
2X100+2 = Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Dow(Two)
Now you can clearly see that just the multiple of 100 has changed from 1 to 2 as compared to the previous case of counting numbers from 101199. So has changed the noun of it in Hindi. Therefore you will just need to replace the noun for the multiple of 100 by "Dow" now and rest of term will remain same as it was in numbers from 101199.
I am writing the nomenclature of some numbers in the range of 200299 for convenience of my readers.
203 = 2x100+3 {Rule  1}
2x100+3 = Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Teen(Three) {Rule  2}
203 = Dow So Teen
204 = 2x100+4 {Rule  1}
2x100+4 = Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Char(Four) {Rule  2}
204 = Dow So Char
205 = 2x100+5 {Rule  1}
2x100+5 = Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Paanch(Five) {Rule  2}
205 = Dow So Paanch
...........................................................................................
298 = 2x100+98 {Rule  1}
2x100+98 = Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Athaanve(Ninety Eight) {Rule  2}
298 = Dow So Athaanve
299 = 2x100+99 {Rule  1}
2x100+99 = Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) {Rule  2}
299 = Dow So Ninyanve
Progressing forward, the next number comes 300. Here also, the multiple of 100 will be changed to 3 and rest of the terms will remain the same. Hence, for the nomenclature of numbers from 300  399, just replace the noun for the multiple of 100 from 2(Dow) to 3(Teen) and keep rest all the things same as in case of numbers from 200  299.
I am again going to elaborate some of the numbers for this range(300399) :
300 = 3x100 {Rule  1}
3X100 = Teen(Three) So(Hundred) {Rule  2}
300 = Teen So
301 = 3x100+1 {Rule  1}
3X100+1 = Teen(Three) So(Hundred) Ek{Rule  2}
301 = Teen So Ek
.............................................................
399 = 3x100+99 {Rule  1}
3X100+99 = Teen(Three) So(Hundred) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) {Rule  2}
399 = Teen So Ninyanve
After this much illustration, I think you will need no collaboration in writing numbers from 400499(with 4 as multiple 10^{2}), from 500599(with 5 as multiple 10^{2}), from 600699(with 6 as multiple 10^{2}) and so on until we reach the number 999.
Counting Of The Order Of 1000!
We have practiced the method of writing numbers of the order of 10^{2 }previously and now we will learn about writing the numbers of the order of 10^{3} in Hindi.
The most important thing that we will have to keep in mind for the nomenclature of numbers from 1000 to 99999, is that the noun for the pronunciation of 1000 in Hindi is "Hajaar".
The first number in the distinct group of 10^{3 }is 1000. We will apply the rule  1 to disintegrate 1000 as follows :
1000 = 1x1000
Now we will substitute the nouns for 1 and 1000 to complete the nomenclature{Rule  2}
1x1000 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand)
1000 = Ek Hajaar
Coming to our next number which is 1001, we will apply rule  1
1001 = 1x1000+1
Applying rule  2 :
1x1000+1 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One)
So 1001 will be collectively called as "Ek Hajaar Ek"
We know that for numbers from 1000 to 1099, the highest order term will remain the same 10^{3 }and the remainder will vary from 1 to 99 respectively. Therefore we will keep the beginning term"Ek Hajaar"(as in case of 1001) the same and substitute the nouns for basic peripherals
from 1 to 99(from the table given above) for each number. I am further going illustrate the nomenclature of some numbers below :
1002 = 1x1000+2 {Rule  1}
1X1000+2 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Dow(Two) {Rule  2}
1002 = Ek Hajaar Dow
1003 = 1x1000+3 {Rule  1}
1X1000+3 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Teen(Three) {Rule  2}
1003 = Ek Hajaar Teen
1004 = 1x1000+4 {Rule  1}
1X1000+4 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Char(Four) {Rule  2}
1004 = Ek Hajaar Char
1005 = 1x1000+5 {Rule  1}
1X1000+5 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Paanch(Five) {Rule  2}
1005 = Ek Hajaar Paanch
..........................................................................................
1098 = 1x1000+98 {Rule  1}
1X1000+98 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Athaanve(Ninety Eight) {Rule  2}
1098 = Ek Hajaar Athaanve
1099 = 1x1000+99 {Rule  1}
1X1000+99 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) {Rule  2}
1099 = Ek Hajaar Ninyanve
In case of numbers upto 1099, each number had just one higher order term like 10^{2 }or 10^{3} as its constituent. After 1099, the next numbers from 1100 to 99999 will have two higher orders numbers(both 10^{2 }and 10^{3}) as their constituents, so we will have to define both these higher order terms along with their respective multiple digits. The process will remain the same as previously; just a reference for additional higher order term will be required as follows :
1100 = 1x1000+1x100 {Rule  1}
1x1000+1x100 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) {Rule  2}
1100 = Ek Hajaar Ek So
We will have to define three terms now : The Highest order term along with its multiple, The next lower order term along with its multiple and the basic peripheral left as remainder respectively.
1101 = 1x1000+1x100+1 {Rule  1}
1x1000+1x100+1 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) Ek(One) {Rule  2}
1101 = Ek Hajaar Ek So Ek
The counting process will now continue smoothly till the number 1199 by just replacing the nouns for basic peripherals from 1 to 99.
1102 = 1x1000+1x100+2 {Rule  1}
1x1000+1x100+2 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) Dow(Two)
1102 = Ek Hajaar Ek So Dow
1103 = 1x1000+1x100+3 {Rule  1}
1x1000+1x100+3 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) Teen(Three)
1103 = Ek Hajaar Ek So Teen
1104 = 1x1000+1x100+4 {Rule  1}
1x1000+1x100+4 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) Char(Four)
1104 = Ek Hajaar Ek So Char
1105 = 1x1000+1x100+5 {Rule  1}
1x1000+1x100+5 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) Paanch(Five)
1105 = Ek Hajaar Ek So Five
.........................................................................................
1198 = 1x1000+1x100+98 {Rule  1}
1x1000+1x100+98 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) Athaanve(Ninety Eight)
1198 = Ek Hajaar Ek So Athaanve
1199 = 1x1000+1x100+99 {Rule  1}
1x1000+1x100+99 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine)
1199 = Ek Hajaar Ek So Ninyanve
The next number 1200 will accommodate for the change of multiple of the term 10^{2 }while the cyclic repetition of basic peripherals from 1 to 99 in numbers from 1201 to1299 will remain same as in case of number range 1101  1199.
1200 = 1x1000+2x100 {Rule  1}
1x1000+2x100 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Dow(Two) So(Hundred) {Rule  2}
1200 = Ek Hajaar Dow So
1201 = 1x1000+2x100+1 {Rule  1}
1x1000+2x100+1 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Ek(One) {Rule  2}
1201 = Ek Hajaar Dow So Ek
1202 = 1x1000+2x100+2 {Rule  1}
1x1000+2x100+2 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Dow(Two) {Rule  2}
1202 = Ek Hajaar Dow So Dow
1203 = 1x1000+2x100+3 {Rule  1}
1x1000+2x100+3 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Teen(Three) {Rule  2}
1203 = Ek Hajaar Dow So Teen
1204 = 1x1000+2x100+4 {Rule  1}
1x1000+2x100+4 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Char(Four) {Rule  2}
1204 = Ek Hajaar Dow So Four
1205 = 1x1000+2x100+5 {Rule  1}
1x1000+2x100+5 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Paanch(Five) {Rule  2}
1205 = Ek Hajaar Dow So Paanch
..............................................................................................................
1298 = 1x1000+2x100+98 {Rule  1}
1x1000+2x100+98 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Athaanve(Ninety Eight) {Rule  2}
1298 = Ek Hajaar Dow So Athaanve
1299 = 1x1000+2x100+99 {Rule  1}
1x1000+2x100+99 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Dow(Two) So(Hundred) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) {Rule  2}
1299 = Ek Hajaar Dow So Ninyanve
The next number 1300, will also accommodate the change of multiple of 10^{2 }and rest of terms will remain same as in case of previous number range 12001299. Therefore, we will just replace the 2(as multiple of 100) with 3 and complete our nomenclature of numbers from 1300 to 1399.
Here are some examples given below :
1300 = 1x1000+3x100 {Rule  1}
1X1000+3X100 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Teen(Three) So(Hundred) {Rule  2}
1300 = Ek Hajaar Teen So
1301 = 1x1000+3x100+1 {Rule  1}
1x1000+3x100+1 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Teen(Three) So(Hundred) Ek(One) {Rule  2}
1301 = Ek Hajaar Teen So Ek
1302 = 1x1000+3x100+2 {Rule  1}
1x1000+3x100+2 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Teen(Three) So(Hundred) Dow(Two) {Rule  2}
1302 = Ek Hajaar Teen So Dow
................................................................................................
1398 = 1x1000+3x100+98 {Rule  1}
1x1000+3x100+98 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Teen(Three) So(Hundred) Athaanve(Ninety Eight) {Rule  2}
1398 = Ek Hajaar Teen So Athaanve
1399= 1x1000+3x100+99 {Rule  1}
1x1000+3x100+99 = Ek(One) Hajaar(Thousand) Teen(Three) So(Hundred) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) {Rule  2}
1399 = Ek Hajaar Teen So Ninyanve
Now Again, For numbers from 14001499, the multiple of hundred will be 4 and the above mentioned procedure will be repeated while substituting 4 and its noun in Hindi as the multiple of 100.
Then for number range of 15001599, the aforesaid multiple will be 5, 6 for 16001699, 7 for 17001799, 8 for 18001899 and 9 for 19001999.
The major difference that we will have to face in nomenclature of numbers, will be for the numbers 2000 and onward. The reason is that the multiple of 1000 will change now. We will write the number 2000 as follows :
2000 = 2x1000 {Rule  1}
2x1000 = Dow(Two) Hajaar(Thousand) {Rule  2}
2000 = Dow Hajaar
2001 = 2x1000+1 {Rule  1}
2X1000+1 = Dow(Two) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One)
2001 = Dow Hajaar Ek
2002 = 2x1000+2 {Rule  1}
2x1000+2 = Dow(Two) Hajaar(Thousand) Dow(Two) {Rule  2}
2002 = Dow Hajaar Dow
...............................................................................................................
2098 = 2x1000+98 {Rule  1}
2x1000+98 = Dow(Two) Hajaar(Thousand) Athaanve(Ninety Eight) {Rule  2}
2098 = Dow Hajaar Athaanve
2099 = 2x1000+99 {Rule  1}
2x1000+99 = Dow(Two) Hajaar(Thousand) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) {Rule  2}
2099 = Dow Hajaar Ninyanve
For numbers from 21002199, the nomenclature of numbers range 11001199 can be used as a reference because the multiple of 1000 which was 1 in the later case will be replaced by 2 and rest of the things will remain the same.
2100 = 2x1000+1x100 {Rule  1}
2x1000+1x100 = Dow(Two) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) {Rule  2}
2100 = Dow Hajaar Ek So
2101 = 2x1000+1x100+1 {Rule  1}
2X1000+1x100+1 = Dow(Two) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) Ek(One)
2101 = Dow Hajaar Ek So Ek
2102 = 2x1000+1x100+2 {Rule  1}
2x1000+1x100+2 = Dow(Two) Hajaar(Thousand) Ek(One) So(Hundred) Dow(Two) {Rule  2}

Counting From 100000 Upto A Million
100000 is the number which potentially attains a big milestone in the process of counting numbers in Hindi. It also differentiate Hindi from English to much extent in terms of the nomenclature numbers.
100000 is called as "Ek Lakh" in Hindi. "Lakh" is the term used to refer the figure 10^{5} which has the zeros of the order of five behind it.
100000 = 1x100000 {Rule  1}
1x100000 = Ek(One) Lakh(Not defined in English) {Rule  2}
100000 = Ek Lakh
After 100000, the sequence of counting will follow the same order as followed above along with the addition of term "Lakh" first of all and then the lower order terms as per their respective positions from 1 to 99999(Refer the procedure above).
Below are some examples for an enhanced experience of elaboration :
100001 = 1x100000+1 {Rule  1}
1x100000+1 = Ek(One) Lakh(Not defined in English) Ek(One) {Rule  2}
100001 = Ek Lakh Ek
100002 = 1x100000+2 {Rule  1}
1x100000+2 = Ek(One) Lakh(Not defined in English) Dow(Two) {Rule  2}
100002 = Ek Lakh Dow
100003 = 1x100000+3 {Rule  1}
1x100000+3 = Ek(One) Lakh(Not defined in English) Teen(Three) {Rule  2}
100003 = Ek Lakh Teen
100004 = 1x100000+4 {Rule  1}
1x100000+4 = Ek(One) Lakh(Not defined in English) Char(Four) {Rule  2}
100004 = Ek Lakh Char
100005 = 1x100000+5 {Rule  1}

100996 = Ek Lakh No So Chheyanve
100997 = 1x100000+9x100+97 {Rule  1}
1x100000+9x100+97 = Ek(One) Lakh(Not defined in English) No(Nine) So(Hundred) Sataanve(Ninety Seven) {Rule  2}

.........................................................................................................................
199996 = 1x100000+99x1000+9X100+96 {Rule  1}
1x100000+99x1000+9X100+96 = Ek(One) Lakh(Not defined in English) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) Hajaar(Thousand) No(Nine) So(Hundred) Chheyanve(Ninety Six) {Rule  2}

199997 = 1x100000+99x1000+9x100+97 {Rule  1}
1x100000+99x1000+9x100+97 = Ek(One) Lakh(Not defined in English) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) Hajaar(Thousand) No(Nine) So(Hundred) Sataanve(Ninety Seven){Rule  2}

199998 = Ek Lakh Ninyanve Hajaar No So Athaanve
199999 = 1x100000+99x1000+9x100+99 {Rule  1}
1x100000+99x1000+9x100+99 = Ek(One) Lakh(Not defined in English) Ninyanve(Ninety) Hajaar(Thousand) No(Nine) So(Hundred) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) {Rule  2}
199999 = Ek Lakh Ninyanve Hajaar No So Ninyanve
After 199999, the next number is 200000. Applying rule  1 here :
200000 = 2x100000
Then rule  2 :
2x100000 = Dow(Two) Lakh(Not Defined In English)
200000 = Dow Lakh
So we can see that the noun for the multiple of 10^{5 }will be 2(Dow) for numbers from 200000299999 and rest of the nomenclature process will remain the same as in case of numbers from 100000199999.
200001 = 2x100000+1 {Rule  1}
2x100000+1 = Dow(Two) Lakh(Not Defined In English) Ek(One) {Rule 2}
200001 = Dow Lakh Ek
200002 = 2x100000+2 {Rule  1}
2x100000+2 = Dow(Two) Lakh(Not Defined In English) Dow(Two) {Rule 2}
200002 = Dow Lakh Dow
200003 = 2x100000+3 {Rule  1}
2x100000+3 = Dow(Two) Lakh(Not Defined In English) Teen(Three) {Rule 2}
200003 = Dow Lakh Teen
...........................................................................................................
299997 = 2x100000+99x1000+9x100+97 {Rule  1}
2x100000+99x1000+9x100+97 = Dow(Two) Lakh(Not Defined In English) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) Hajaar(Thousand) No(Nine) So(Hundred) Sataanve(Ninety Seven) {Rule 2}
299997 = Dow Lakh Ninyanve Hajaar No So Sataanve
299998 = 2x100000+99x1000+9x100+98 {Rule  1}
2x100000+99x1000+9x100+98 = Dow(Two) Lakh(Not Defined In English) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) Hajaar(Thousand) No(Nine) So(Hundred) Athaanve(Ninety Eight) {Rule 2}
299998 = Dow Lakh Ninyanve Hajaar No So Athaanve
299999 = 2x100000+99x1000+9x100+99 {Rule  1}
2x100000+99x1000+9x100+99 = Dow(Two) Lakh(Not Defined In English) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) Hajaar(Thousand) No(Nine) So(Hundred) Ninyanve(Ninety Nine) {Rule 2}
299999 = Dow Lakh Ninyanve Hajaar No So Ninyanve
Similarly we can complete the nomenclature of numbers from 300000399999 using 3(Teen) as multiple of10^{5}, 4(Char) in case of numbers from 400000499999, 5(Paanch) for 500000599999, 6(Chhey) for 600000699999, 7(Saat) for 700000799999, 8(Aath) for 800000899999 and 9(No) for 900000999999.
Then comes our final number 1000000 or you can say One Million in English.Applying Rule  1 first of all :
1000000 = 10x100000
10x100000 = Dus(Ten) Lakh(Not Defined In English) {Rule  2}
1000000 = Dus Lakh
So "One Million" will be pronounced as "Dus Lakh" in Hindi.
