What lakh means. What crore means.

Those who like myself like reading news from every part of the globe, might have come accoss the word lakh. It has the same meaning as the Hindi word: लाख ('Lākha'), which means 1 00 000, and from which it gains its meaning. Crore, from Hindi करोड़ ('Karōṛa'), meanwhile means 100 lakh or ten million. It too comes from Hindi, both words come from Sanskrit.
