What is the effect of changing the font?

Personally, I would like it if the Garuda script were modeled on the Hindi script.

व्यक्तिगत रूप से, मुझे यह पसंद आएगा यदि गरुड़ स्क्रिप्ट को हिंदी स्क्रिप्ट पर मॉडल किया गया था।
क्या इससे कुछ बनाया जा सकता था?

Could something be made out of this?

That is called Adler.

You can read Shanghai above the entrance of a Chinese restaurant, modeled on the Chinese script.
Do you see how I mean it?

Naman :wink:

That is what I got in translations. Its not hindi script?

Maybe you can paint a picture?
Says more than thousend words :wink:
@Naman problem is, English language use one word for 100 different things :smiley:
Next, if I use Letter/Symbol from language I dont know it could be a pain to look at for for the native speaker :slight_smile: :rofl:


Aber ich werde es gerne versuchen :slight_smile:
But I will gladly try it :slight_smile:

I think it's 'stylized' - stilisiert? A font with a Hindi 'feel'?

Feel free to shoot me for butting in. :grin:

Pleasure - language is another barrier between people.

Examples from 'Hinglish' - https://www.google.com/search?q=hindi+style+letters+in+english&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwiMx-PM9YLwAhUM7xoKHTjSBYoQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=hindi+style+letters+in+english&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQAzIGCAAQCBAeMgYIABAIEB4yBggAEAgQHjoICAAQCBAHEB5Q-iJY2DJgwDZoAHAAeACAAS6IAdkBkgEBNZgBAKABAaoBC2d3cy13aXotaW1nwAEB&sclient=img&ei=m5d5YMyNIIzea7ikl9AI&bih=962&biw=1920&client=firefox-b-d

For Hindus, Sanskrit is a holy scripture. The Vedas are written in Sanskrit. Likewise the well-known epics Mahabharata and Ramayana, in case I'm not mistaken.

I am curious how the Indians will comment on this in the forum.

Thank you very much, nice to read :blush:

Most of the time Inkscape and Blender (Krita/GIMP less).

OMG,

Yes, it is Hindi it is Garuda written in Hindi.

No, never. It changes the meaning of word.

Yep, and I am glad that I live only 45 Kilometer away from Kurukshetra, where the war of Mahabharat was fought.

But you should know that Sankrit is a language, and there are many layouts/scripts, most popular Hindi layout for computer is Devnagri or देवनागरी लिपि
Scripture is something like Holy Bible, and clearly there is lot of difference between scripture and language, just like Bible and English.

Nice font. IIRC, it was even used in Commonwealth games, on Indian jersey.

Thanks @Naman, I know that because I'm very interested in languages.

Incidentally, I recognized my lapse and corrected it:
