    the root verb is 'chalna' - may mean variety of things depending on the context. few of the meaning may be to walk, to go,to start

    chalo is imperative form of the verb.
    a request , an order or advice .

    so, 'chalo' according to context may mean 'lets go' or 'start walking' 'carry on' or even affirmation like chalo theek hai/koi baat nahin etc.

    'chalo' can be better understood in a given context.

    'chali' is past feminine form of the same verb. masculine form for the same is 'chalaa'
