When I saw this, I had to do a double-take – I almost thought that this was Gujarati for a minute. Devanagari letters hang from the thin horizontal lines, pre-drawn on the chalkboard.
Na and Ma are written with looped forms, starting low and on the left, then angling upward to the right. The Ga is similarly low and large-looped. The Da is quite small and curvy, an interesting attribute. It was great to see glimpses of informal handwriting – most of what I saw on the trip was either computer-generated signage or meticulous sign painting.
