  1. I would like to know the anglicised pronunciation of this word:
    इन्द्रधनुष
    Have you considered a ‘search’ mechanism on your site that would provide pronunciation for sanskrit/hindi words?
    thanks

  2. Hi,

    The pronunciation would be: In-dra-dh-nush. I hope you understand the sounds of these words while coming together. “dra” would be one sound with soft “d” and the sound of “r” mixing with it. Then you need to pronounce the “dh” with soft sound and “nush” could be pronounced as together.

    Well, thanks for suggesting a sort of thing–search mechanism. I have not thought about it yet but yes, it could be a good idea and perhaps help my visitors understand the language better and in an easier way. Somebody suggested to do an audio version of the guide so that all the sounds could be understood clearly. I am thinking on those lines also.

    Feel free to contact if you have more questions. Thanks!
