Per my understanding, hindi  should be more like "gyan"  ज्ञान is sanskrit.
I know Roman script can not accurately represent all the devnagari
alphabets. But "jn" is more closer than "dnyn". By the way, the original
alphabet used in sankrit is "moolashar", not "jodakshar".

P.S: I'm OK to end this discussion here, I'm not trying to prove any point.
I just find this discussion interesting, but I also understand that it does
not belong to PLUG, unless marked [OT]
