So far you learnt how a vowel is combined with a consonant.
Some words in Hindi have two consonant combined- the first consonant is written incompletely and joined with the 2nd consonant.

There are two kind of consonant in Hindi:
1. have a vertical line in the end like:
k K ga Ga ca ja Ja Ha Na t
2. those which don't have a vertical line:
C T z D Z d r h
When in a conjunct consonant the first letter has a vertical line, then you drop the vertical line in the first letter. For example:
ga + va = gva
ca + C = cC
And so on---
k and Ja have a vertical line but they have a hook at the end, when combining them with another consonanat, the hook is left midway so that it may be joined with the second letter.
k + k = @k
k + va = @va
Ja + Ja = Ja T; z; D and d can't be combined in either way. They are,
And so on--- Joining r to another consonant has a different forms:
In the first example, karma, ra comes before the last letter ma, and
appears in the form of a hook( -
) on the top of the letter
which follows it.
|A vowel is pronounced alone but a vowel sign (Matra) is pronounced together with a consonant. Each vowel is represented by its sign (matra)|
