Another Spirituality blog

A Shiva Bhakta's Experiments with Spirituality

Part of the reasoning for this blog, was my inability to quickly refresh the Shiva Bhakta website that I had haphazardly developed back in 2000 on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and Devotion. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content...rambling and ranting of my spirituality experiments and thoughts - helps log them too.

Now you can blog in Hindi

Ever wondered how cool it would be if you could type "Haal kaisa hai janaab ka" in your usual chatting style and the words actually got converted automagically to "हाल कैसा है जनाब का"? We have now made that possible with the new Blogger transliteration feature. Now you can easily publish your thoughts, experiences and even your favourite Bollywood songs in Hindi.

Enabling the transliteration option allows you to type out Hindi words using phonetically equivalent English script, and see the words getting transformed into the corresponding Devanagari script. The plus is that you now don't need to learn complicated mappings from English alphabet combinations to Hindi letters. That means you really don't need to worry about WeiRD UpPerCasEing to get the right Hindi spellings. Just type as you would naturally do, in your own style, and let Google read your mind :) Well, not really, but close. We realised that everybody has their own unique way of spelling Hindi words in English -- so we have a personalization mechanism in place that enables us to remember your writing style. Correct once, and get the word right every time after that!

We use machine learning technology in the background to give you the most satisfactory transliteration. This way, you can focus on the writing and comfortably express yourself in a language close to your heart. Go creative, try it out, and discuss it here. We're sure you will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it!
