Learn Hindi with Vel Day Five

DAY ONE          DAY TWO          DAY THREE          DAY FOUR 

DAY FIVE - 18.05.2012
There is an another rule to be noted.
* The symbol should (a half moon with a dot on top as shown below in the figure) be read as 'ing' sound when come above a letter, after pronouncing that letter.
* That too varies according to the next letter
    1. 'ing' if the next letter is in 'ka' series i.e. ka,kha,ga,gha
    2. 'inch' if the next letter is in 'sa' series i.e. sa, cha, chah, ja, jha
    3. 'in' - 'ण ' if the next letter is in 'ta' series
    4. 'inth' or 'in' - 'न' if the next letter is in 'tha' series
    5. 'm' for all other letters as the next letter.
Note: For 1 to 5 above, the writing would be only a dot above that letter (not as like for main 'ing' (half moon with a dot on top))

Rule 2
The following picture shows an example for that (how to read and write)
First is "Aankh" - 'आँख'   - Eye
Third is "Thandt" - 'दंड'   - Punishment
Rule 2 Contd

The following pictures show the samples of 3 letter & 4 letter word and a hand written copy of combination of letter along with printed copy.

3  & 4 letter words & combo of letters 

The hand written copies are to realize some confusions (practical difficulties) that arise while we write. [Proverb: Others' mistakes are lessons for an Intelligent]

Try to read letters as we learnt earlier.

Hint: Stick to the basics while learning to write Hindi letters. That would help you to write letters easily and technically right since some letters are more often looks identical.
