I've been incredibly busy with work since I got back to India. Actually, it's really been like this since the start of this year. I'm working full time for Essential Resources, a New Zealand based company who publish awesome educational resources for teachers, as well as part time for the University, and for an Auckland-based startup. It's quite a blend of technologies and languages. (Sorry, but this post will mostly only make sense to geeks)
One of the interesting things about the Hindi language is that the alphabet works very differently to the English alphabet. In fact, I think that technically it is not an alphabet at all - it is a syllabary. That means that Hindi symbols directly represent spoken syllables, and therefore is almost completely phonetic.
