How to write two types of "r" in Mangal Font

Writing two types of “r” in Mangal Font for Hindi

If you are using Mangal font for writing Hindi text, here is something that I would like to share with you. There are two types of “r” or “र” used in Hindi that are not regular script. One of them is used when the previous consonant is half and one is used when the “r” or “र” itself is half. There is clear rule of recognition for these letters. When the “r” or “र“ is placed as a slanting line under the consonant, it is the that consonant which is half here. If the standing curve like figure is used on the top of a consonant, it means the sound of “r” or “र” is half.

Example of both types of “r”:

प्राप्त (the first “p” is half here and the slanting line below it is the “r”)
पर्वत (the standing curve on “v” is the half “r” here and is sounded between “p” and “v”.

How to type “r” of Hindi in Mangal Font

Now, you know that “halant” is used to make consonants half. When we have to type any half letter in Mangal font, we use the key “d”. So if you have to write the lower “r”, which means the previous consonant needs to be half, you can press that consonant and then press the “d” key following by “j” key, which stands for “r” of Hindi. It will automatically set the letters accordingly.

There is also a shortcut to do it: after pressing the consonant that you want to use, you can directly use “shift+3” key and it will automatically give you the lower “r” of Hindi.

Now if you want to make the “r” half, meaning want to put it on the next consonant, you need to press “j” key and then the “d” key to make it half followed by whatever consonant you want to go for. Mangal font will automatically do it for you.

  1. It would be written as “ऐशले”…or “ऐशली” depending on the pronunciation. If you end it with the sound of “ee”, it would the second one. Otherwise, it would be the first one. Thanks!

    You don’t have install it. You just need to change your keyboard layout from “Regional Settings” of your control panel by adding a keyboard and selecting “Hindi” as language. This would be possible provided you have original version of Windows.

  3. A question is asked above : How to type “yagya” in hindi ?
    You replied : It is typed as: यज्ञ
    But as a matter of fact if we type “yagya” or “yajna” in Mangal fonts, the word printed is यग्य or यज्न not “यज्ञ”
    Can you please guide what keys are to be pressed in Mangal fonts to get the required result?

  11. Dear There
    Though well versed now in Mangal but still has got problem…
    I want to write परमेश्वर like this, but when I converts Mangal fonts in Arial Unicode MS व goes in the legs of half श and becomes one word which is not accepted by my Boss, I want all separate consonants. Could you please let me know the formula for doing that
    With regard

      Hi Jeet,

      Well, I understand the problem that you are facing but I guess here your boss is at fault. Because this is how original Sanskrit or Hindi words are represented. The notation is different but it’s not wrong spelling. So, actually, you boss should not have a problem with it. Otherwise, he will have to accept your writing in Mangal font only not convert it in Arial Unicode MS.

  12. Yes Sir, now this is a big problem for, as the whole Christianity, uses word परमेश्वर, शाश्वत and many more….the way I have written. Anyway, help me in getting some another Unicode font that would help me to write the way they want without the combination of consonants. I was trying to bring this in the notice of Microsoft but could not get success hence came to you…
    Thanks for your care and guidance in past.

  13. Though there is a request and response above, but repeating the same question as I wasn’t able to get it.

    I need to write “dwara” in Hindi, where the half “व” comes below “द”.

    As per the previous response, I tried typing: द(o), d(halant), व(b) but it comes out as “द्वारा”. Please guide how I can write the half “व” below “द” in Mangal font

    1. Language Enthusiast

      Hi Ramay,

      Well, you are writing it correctly. In Hindi, if you want to write ‘Dwara’, ‘द’ would be half and not ‘व’. Remember, the letter that goes to the foot would be full. द्वारा is absolutely write and you are actually getting what you want. It’s just the font issue that is not showing you the way you want it to be. I opened your comment on my mobile (Moto G, Android based) and the font is coming as you would want–व in the foot of द. However, your spellings are correct and nothing wrong in that.

    Dear sir,
    I have recently finished an eBook in Hindi with Mangal font. For formatting, I changed the font to Arial Unicode MS .After conversion, I noticed spelling of several words like द्वारा, सत्तावन changes. I am little bit confused about it. Is this spell-change grammatically correct ? Do such spell-change take place in MS word after converting the font from Mangal to Arial Unicode MS ?

    1. Hi,

      The way spellings are represented are different in both these fonts–they are not wrong. Arial Unicode MS renders it more beautifully. Grammatically, they should be correct if you had typed them correctly in Mangal font.

    1. I am confused about your question–you are asking for inverted commas and apostrophe and then adding Visargah in parenthesis.

      If you want to write inverted comma and apostrophe, you will need to switch to English keyboard. However, for Visargah in Mangal font, you can write with these keys:

      (Shift-)

      1. Hey. How can i type “office” and “operator” (आॅफिस , आॅपरेटर) in hindi… when i am writing these words in ms word i am not able to type

        1. I don’t know how you wrote them while asking the question, but if you simply copy-pasted them, here are the keys to type them:

          ऑफिस– | H f m
          ऑपरेटर– | h j e ‘ j

          These keys will give you the desired words in Mangal font.
