What is the effect of changing the font?

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:

No, I'm playing with the font in Blender for wallpaper or avatar.

For such an avatar I would do without mine. This is not possible in combination with my avatar. It is the good spirit that drives away the demons. That is why he is rewarded daily with sweets, frangipani flowers and of course a cigarette. He watches over my bamboo hut.

If you live in another country (unfortunately not at the moment) you have to accept the customs and traditions, otherwise you won't have any fun. :grin:

This format would actually be super practical for a sticker!

My opinion on this:

What you name should be written in the script of its own language, that would be more precious and perfect. For example, in English you can't exactly say how to pronounce Garuda (you can spell "Garuda" as गरुडा/गरूडा/गारुडा/....., all can be just "Garuda", you can't distinguish) (Please don't quote this, I'm not good in English) but the actual name is गरुड (that's the beauty of this language, exactly write what you pronounce letter by letter). Any word can be best written/described in its own language's script than any other. I never name a Chinese movie in English script. I always keep it's name like 我是誰. It's fun to learn and to keep the originality as it is. You'll also learn at least to write the name in the original script.

If the name is line "Linux Mint", "MX Linux" etc. it's good to be written in English, but in the case of Garuda, गरुड would be more appropriate :sunglasses:

Again, it's your creativity. You can have whatever script and font you would like to have! Just shared how I'd prefer, not how it should be!
