  2. It’s good to know that you showed interest in Hindi.

    Many of Hindi-speaking people may not even know that the alphabet of Indian languages ​​is full of science. Each letter of the alphabet is logical and placed sequentially with precise calculations. Such a scientific view is not ingrained in the alphabet of other foreign languages e.g. See:

    *क ख ग घ ઙ* – This group of five is called *kanthavya* because the sound comes out of the throat while pronouncing this. Try pronouncing.

    *च छ ज ज ઞ* – These five are called *palate* because the tongue will feel palate while pronouncing this. Try pronouncing.

    *ट ठ ड ઢ ण* – These five are called *Murdhanya* because while pronouncing this the tongue will feel Murdhanya. Try pronouncing.

    *त थ द ध न* – This group of five is called *Dantavya* because the tongue touches the teeth while pronouncing this. Give it a try

    *प फ ब भ म* – This group of five is called *Aushthavya* because both the lips meet to pronounce this. Give it a try

    I am not sure whether any other language in the world has such a scientific approach?
