In English we say "May God bless you", "May he help you","May door open soon". Here we have used "may" express wish. 

In Marathi we say such wishes by appending ओ(o) for singular and ओत(ot) to plural. 
e.g. 
for verb do i.e. करणे(karaNe) forms are करो(karo) and  करोत (karot)
for verb speak i.e. बोलणे(bolaNe) forms are बोलो(bolo) and  बोलोत (bolot)

For verbs not ending with अ(a)  we append वो(vo) for singular and  वोत(vot) for plural.
for verb give i.e.देणे (deNe)  forms are देवो  ( devo ) and देवोत  ( devot )
for verb become i.e होणे ( hoNe ) forms are होवो ( hovo ) and होवोत ( hovot )

May God bless you -> देव तुम्हाला आशिर्वाद देवो ( dev tumhAlA AshirvAd devo )
May he help you -> तो तुम्हाला मदत करो  ( to tumhAlA madat karo )
May they help you -> ते तुम्हाला मदत करोत ( te tumhAlA madat karot )
May new year be happy to you -> नवीन वर्ष सुखदायक असो ( navIn varSh sukhadAyak aso )

May shop open soon -> दुकान लवकर उघडो ( dukAn lavakar ughaDo)

Give above is word to word translation of "May God bless you", but as custom in Marathi we say देव तुमचं भलं करो ( dev tumachaM bhalaM karo )

In Marathi, we generally we use this form only for third-person. Not with first or second person i.e. not with मी, आम्ही, तू, तुम्ही.
So In English we can form sentence like "May you help me" which will be in Marathi as तू मला मदत करो  ( tU malA madat karo ). So though gramatically perfect, it sounds bit irregular in Marathi.

Wish / To wish "Wish" (noun)  -> इच्छा  (ichCA) it is feminine-singular noun. To wish -> इच्छा असणे (ichCA asaNe)
The sentence using इच्छा असणे (ichCA asaNe) is similar to saying "It is my wish that... may/should..."


I wish he goes to school -> It is my wish that he should go to school -> माझी अशी इच्छा आहे की तो शाळेत गेला पाहिजे.(mAjhI ashI ichChA Ahe kI to shALet gelA pAhije.)


He wishes Kaushik wins -> It is his wish that may Kaushik win -> त्याची अशी इच्छा आहे की कौशिक जिंको(tyAchI ashI ichChA Ahe kI kaushik jiMko)

It is his wish that Kaushik should win ->
त्याची अशी इच्छा आहे की कौशिकने जिंकावे (tyAchI ashI ichChA Ahe kI kaushikane jiMkAve)



With अकर्मक(akarmak) verbs ; when expressing wish; we create verb form as per gender and multiplicity of subject

Subject         
verb+ form of "वा" depending on gender and multiplicity of subject
i.e. 
आवा-आवी-आवे-आवे-आव्या-आवी   
(AvA-AvI-Ave-Ave-AvyA-AvI)
तो (to)
 जावा (jAvA)

To speak:- बोलणे  (bolaNe) Froms will be
बोलावा - बोलावी -बोलावे -बोलावे -बोलाव्या -बोलावी
(boAvA-boAvI-boAve-boAve-boAvyA-boAvI)


Examples :- 
I wish that he should win-> माझी अशी इच्छा आहे की तो जिंकावा (mAjhI ashI ichChA Ahe kI to jiMkAvA)
I wish that she should win-> माझी अशी इच्छा आहे की ती जिंकावी (mAjhI ashI ichChA Ahe kI to jiMkAvI)
 

He wishes that I(boy) win-> त्याची अशी इच्छा आहे की मी जिंकावा (tyAchI ashI ichChA Ahe kI mI jiMkAvA)
He wishes that I(girl) win -> त्याची अशी इच्छा आहे की मी जिंकावी (tyAchI ashI ichChA Ahe kI mI jiMkAvI)
He wishes that we win -> त्याची अशी इच्छा आहे की आम्ही जिंकावे (tyAchI ashI ichChA Ahe kI AmhI jiMkAve)


1) If verb verb does not end with sound अ(a)  then we simply omit आ(A) and appendवा-वी-वे-वे-व्या-वी (vA-vI-ve-ve-vyA-vI)

To eat :-  खाणे(khANe)
खावा-खावी-खावे-खावे-खाव्या-खावी  (khAvA-khAvI-khAve-khAve-
khAvyA-khAvI)

2) Sometimes extra त (t) is added to plural form. So both are acceptable forms.

बोलावा - बोलावी -बोलावे -बोलावे -बोलाव्या -बोलावी 
(boAvA-boAvI-boAve-boAvet-boAvyAt-boAvIt) 

खावा-खावी-खावे-खावे-खाव्या-खावी  (khAvA-khAvI-khAve-khAvet-khAvyAt-khAvIt)   
e.g.  
You wish that they should win-> 
तुझी  अशी इच्छा आहे की ते जिंकावे / जिंकावे (mAjhI ashI ichChA Ahe kI te jiMkAvet)

3) When subject is You(singular)  i.e. तू(tU) ; extra स(s) is appended to verb form.

I wish that you(boy) should smile -> 
माझी अशी इच्छा आहे की तू हसावा  (mAjhI ashi ichChA Ahe kI tU hasAvAs)

He wishes that you(boy) should cry -> 
त्याची अशी इच्छा आहे की तू रडावा (tyAchI ashi ichChA Ahe kI tU raDAvAs)

I wish that you(girl) should smile -> 
माझी अशी इच्छा आहे की तू हसावी (mAjhI ashi ichChA Ahe kI tU hasAvIs)

He wishes that you(girl) should cry -> 
त्याची अशी इच्छा आहे की तू रडावी (tyAchI ashi ichChA Ahe kI tU raDAvIs)

... I (boy)

Adjectives made from verb

***************************************************************

***************************************************************


In English we create adjectives from verb like e.g. speaking doll, moving chair, spoken word, defeated nation. The words "speaking","spoken","defeated" etc. are adjectives created from verbs "To Speak", "To Defeat" etc.

In Marathi also we create such adjectives.
1) Adjectives indicating general behaviour 
e.g. Speaking tree, dancing doll etc.

In Marathi such adjectives are created by suffixing form of "णारा" to verb.
e.g. speaking :- बोल (bol) + णारा (NArA) -> बोलणारा  (bolaNArA) 
Laughing :- हस (has) + णारा  (NArA) -> हसणारा  ( hasaNArA  )

As we have seen before, the adjectives ending with vowel आ(A) change as per gender and multiplicity of noun, and it is changes using  "आ-ई-ए-ए-या-ई (A-I-e-e-yA-I) rule" (http://kaushiklele-learnmarathi.blogspot.in/2012/06/i-e-e-ya-i-rule.html )

2) Adjectives indicating completed action
e.g. Spoken word, finished meal etc.

In Marathi such adjectives are created by suffixing form of "लेला" to verb.
e.g. Spoken:- बोल (bol) + लेला(lelA) -> बोललेला ( bolalelA )
Laughed :- हस (has) + लेला(lelA) -> हसलेला ( hasalelA )

These forms are appended to past tense word of that verb.
e.g. for verb बघणे(baghaNe ) the suffixes are appended to बघित(baghit) etc.


As we have seen before, the adjectives ending with vowel आ(A) change as per gender and multiplicity of noun, and it is changes using  "आ-ई-ए-ए-या-ई (A-I-e-e-yA-I) rule" (http://kaushiklele-learnmarathi.blogspot.in/2012/06/i-e-e-ya-i-rule.html )

3) Adjectives indicating ongoing action  
Third way of using verb can not be classified as adjective in English but in Marathi it is.
e.g. The boy who is giving speech is my brother.
That person who is dancing is mad.

So these group of word viz. "who is dancing/giving" can be thought as adjective. This adjective indicate that activity is going on at given moment. So in Marathi we will use present continuous tense and use form of "णारा"(NArA) or लेला (lelA) to create adjective. 

i.e.verb + त(t)  followed by form of असलेला/असणारा as per gender and multiplicity.

e.g.
The boy who is giving -> देत असलेला मुलगा ( det asalelA mulagA )    OR
                                      देत असणारा मुलगा (det asaNArA mulagA )

That person who is dancing -> नाचत असलेली व्यक्ती ( nAchat asalelI vyaktI ) OR
                                              नाचत असणारी व्यक्ती (nAchat asaNArI vyaktI )


As you would have guessed that as per  आ-ई-ए-ए-या-ई (A-I-e-e-yA-I) rulethe form of will be असलेला/असणारा
असणारा-असणारी-असणारे-असणारे-असणाऱ्या-असणारी (asaNArA-asaNArI-asaNAre-asaNAre-asaNAryA-asaNArI )
or
असलेला-असलेली-असलेले-असलेले-असलेल्या-असलेली (asalelA-asalelI-asalele-asalele-asalelyA-asalelI)

Even if you are talking about activity which was going on in past or future, you will use same pattern.
The boy who was giving money was my brother -> पैसे देत असलेला मुलगा माझा भाऊ होता (paise det asalelA mulagA mAjhA bhAU hotA)
Nation that will be doing progress will be successful -> प्रगती करत असलेली राष्ट्रे महान होतील (pragatI karat asalelI rAShTre mahAn hotIl)

Note that in day-to-day conversation instead of saying "नाचत असलेली व्यक्ती" a native speaker will tend to use shorter adjective i.e. "नाचणारी". So the context of the speech will convey appropriate meaning.
