How to use on the one hand and on the other hand

On the one hand…on the other hand

(to talk about ‘contrast’)

రెండు పరస్పర విరుద్ధమైన విషయాలను చెప్పడానికి ఇవి ఉపయోగిస్తాం.

Let’s look at a few examples.

  1. On the one hand, she wants financial freedom, but on the other hand, she doesn’t want to work.

ఒకవైపు, ఆమె ఆర్ధిక స్వాతంత్ర్యం కోరుకుంటుంది. మరోవైపు, ఆమె పని చేయాలని అనుకోవట్లేదు.

  • On the one hand I’d like a job that pays more, but on the other hand I enjoy the work I’m doing at the moment.

ఒకవైపు, నాకు ఎక్కువ డబ్బులు వచ్చే ఉద్యోగం కావాలని ఉంది. మరోవైపు, నేను చేస్తున్న పని కూడా enjoy చేస్తున్నాను.

  • On the one hand, if the body doesn’t have enough cholesterol, we would not be able to survive. On the other hand, if the body has too much cholesterol, the excess begins to block arteries.

ఒకవైపు, శరీరానికి అవసరమైనంత కొవ్వు లేకపోతే, మనం జీవించలేం. మరోవైపు, శరీరఒలో చాలా ఎక్కువ కొలెస్టరాల్ ఉంటే, అది రక్తనాళాల్ని block చేస్తుంది.

(artery = one of the tubes that carries blood from your heart to the rest of your body)

  • On the one hand, you advise me not to use phone. On the other hand, you ask me to use the phone to attend online classes.
  • On the one hand, working from home saves a lot of time. On the other hand, we miss being social.
  • On the one hand, my videos are very good. On the other hand, they are a bit long.
  • On the one hand, having your own business can be very good. On the other hand, it involves many risks.

(without ‘on the one hand’)

  • He is a good guy. His brother, on the other hand, is a very selfish guy.

అతను మంచివాడే. కానీ, అతని సోదరుడు మాత్రం స్వార్ధపరుడు.

  • It looks like a great building. On the other hand, it is very expensive.
  • My husband likes classical music – I, on the other hand, like all kinds.
