Hello, could you please translate me some world into hindi language?
Please write the original hindi meaning and the TRANSCRIPTION meaning. I'll wrote down some trancriptions that I've found on the internet, but I don't know which one is correct!

Elephant - Hathi, haathi
Tiger - Bagh, sher, vyaghr
Vulture - giddh, vaalacher , lutera
Peacock - mor , morni
Welcome to India - ?

Please help me

Even though there are multiple stickies and at least one article with title Some Basic Hindi For Travelers present with this topic, let me select the correct words for you:

Elephant - Hathi, haathi (both are correct),
Tiger - Bagh
Vulture - giddh
Peacock - mor (morni is she-peacock)
Welcome to India - Bharat mein swaagat hai

To add to what Aarosh has shared above, there're some nuances you should be aware of :

Sher is a word that can be used for a Lion or a Tiger. A lion would be called a Babbar-sher. Bagh is exclusively used for the Tiger and derives from the sanskrit Vyaghr.

To avoid this confusion either babbar-sher may be used or another word called singh (sometimes written simha or sinh) is used for the lion.

Lastly - In another context, sher is urdu for couplet.

I have a different take on 'Sher'.
Tiger - Sher
Lion- Babbar sher
Bagh - Leopard.

I also got the impression while travelling that Bagh is used for Leopard in most part and did not come across any place where Tigar was called as 'Bagh'.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

Jitu, I'm a bit surprised to see this coming from you. Leopard is Baghera in certain parts (both the spotted and the black). Bagh is a tiger anywhere you go. Leopard is usually called Tendua.

I am not sure about the word's actual translation and you may well be, or are right as far as academical thing is concerned.

However, as I mentioned, locals usually call leopard as Bagh specially here in Uttarakhand, (and also bagheera, tendua elsewhere in India as you mentioned).

In my travelling experience I have not come across anybody calling tiger as Bagh but I accept that that may be due to my limited discussions on the beautiful animal, or for any other reasons rather than actual fact.

At home, leopard was called 'deepdo' in Gujarati.
